New 3DMark Trailer Shows Stunning DirectX 11 Graphics

3DMark  has been a standard graphics benchmark for many years, while it includes four benchmarks, we will be focusing on Fire Strike, which is the most demanding benchmark within the suite.  Fire Strike is used to test the performance of gaming PCs, and tests DirectX 11 hardware.


Benchmark Results:  The Fire Strike benchmark gave the Dual-X R9 280 an overall score of 6432, while the XFX R7950 received 6133, which comes to about a 5% difference in scores.  However, the difference between the R9 280 and R9 290 was just over 25%, a huge difference just with one step up.

    So how much voltage when card died?

  • alexsamag

    Is the voltage locked on this gpu? Because I can’t modify the voltage in afterburner or trixx.

  • thisrandomguy

    So you were able to OC the GPU Clock to 1075Mhz. You didn’t try to OC the memory clock ?

    I need to know whether or not this card can out perform a GTX760 4GB OC
