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: Once again we see that the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H and Z77X-UD3H are at the bottom of the charts. The GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H had an overall score in the extreme preset of 1632 while the MSI Z77A-GD65 took the top spot with 1660 3DMarks. The performance preset showed the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H as being quite capable with an overall score of 5216 3DMarks which is only 2% behind the top spot. The GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H had an overall score of 5167 3DMarks which is 3% behind the MSI Z77A-GD65.
