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 has recently released 3DMark11 we decided to run the benchmark at both performance and extreme presets to see how our hardware will run.
3DMark11 Performance Benchmark Results:
Futuremark 3DMark11 with the performance preset showed that the EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SC had a score of P9002, this is faster than either of the Radeon HD 7970’s. Though as respectable as a score of P9002 is, the NVIDAI GeForce GTX 680 still has a solid lead with a score of P9767. The reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX was able to muster up a score of P8745, only 257 3DMarks behind the EVGA SC edition.
3DMark11 Extreme Benchmark Results:
Once we ran the Extreme preset, we can see that the EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SC is still going strong with a score of X3045 which is enough to edge out the MSI R7970 and was 113 3DMarks ahead of the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670.
