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.
We ran 3DMark11 with both the performance and extreme presets to see how our hardware will run.
3DMark11 Performance Benchmark Results:
Benchmark Results: The Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 Dual-X 1GB OC video card scored P6086 and the Sapphire Radeon HD7790 2GB OC scored P6059. Again, way too close to show any benefits from the frame buffer.
3DMark11 Extreme Benchmark Results:
Benchmark Results: 3DMark11 with the Extreme Preset uses more of the video cards memory and runs at a higher resolution, so we hoped to see the 2GB card doing better here. Hope be damned, the Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 Dual-X 1GB OC was in the lead again.
