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 ASRock Fatal1ty Professional motherboard came in a few points shy of the top spot in the performance preset of 3DMark 11. The ASRock Fatal1ty Professional was second only to the GIGABYTE P67A-UD4 by 46 3DMarks in the performance preset. The 3DMark extreme preset results show the ASRock Fatal1ty Professional with a 10 point lead over all of the previous boards.
