3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world’s most popular benchmark for measuring the 3D graphics performance of gaming PCs. 3DMark 11 uses a native DirectX 11 engine designed to make extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11, including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading.
Since Futuremark is releasing 3DMark11 today we decided to run the benchmark at both performance and extreme presets to see how our hardware will run.
Benchmark results: The MSI P67A-GD65 motherboard was able to edge out the other Intel P67 chipset motherboards, at least in the performance preset. The extreme preset in 3DMark 11 the MSI P67A-GD65 was at the bottom of the Socket 1155 boards. Though to be fair to all of the boards there was less than 1% difference in all of the p67 boards for both presets.
