Futuremark 3DMark Fire Strike

Fire Strike has two benchmark modes: Normal mode runs in 1920x1080, while Extreme mode targets 2560x1440. GPU target frame buffer utilization for normal mode is 1GB and the benchmark uses tessellation, ambient occlusion, volume illumination, and a medium-quality depth of field filter. The more taxing Extreme mode targets 1.5GB of frame buffer memory and increases detail levels across the board. Extreme mode is explicitly designed for CrossFire / SLI systems. GT 1 focuses on geometry and illumination, with over 100 shadow casting spot lights, 140 non-shadow casting point lights, and 3.9 million vertices calculated for tessellation per frame. And 80 million pixels are processed per frame. GT2 emphasizes particles and GPU simulations. Tessellation volume is reduced to 2.6 million vertices and the number of pixels processed per frame rises to 170 million.


EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC w/ ACX 3DMark Fire Strike Details

3DMark Fire Strike tells essentially the same story as the Unigine benchmark on the previous page. In these tests, the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC with ACX cooling once again outruns the reference GeForce GTX 770 and Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, but the GeForce GTX 780 remained well ahead.

Goodness it'd be nice to have $400 in the budget for a graphics card. Someday...Someday...

I've been saving up money for a new video card for a while now... I have $50 left to save up to get this card. I had already picked it out as my target before this article came out. It shouldn't be too long before it'll be mine!

(Replacing a GTX 285 which gets flakey and locks up my computer from time to time)

Good luck with the 770. As far as the 285 goes you prob need to turn the fan on to 100%. Buddy of mine has an EVGA 285 and it kept overheating on him playing games like BF3 then figured out it was just a heat issue. When it hits over 80C it just would died a horrible death but figured out if he cranked the fan to 100% and drowned out the noise he was good heh

It has a good warranty and the performance is pretty good too.

Love to have a pair of them for a little SLI goodness,...........Smile

My friend just got a pair of those for a build and he loves them. Running a number of games at above 80 fps and crisis 3 at around 60 with dips down to 50 on max settings.

The 700 series is good but now im curious what the AMD 9000 series is gonna be like. Finally caught up on stuff from the past month or so and saw the 9000 series might be released in October I think it said.

Hasn't it been just like this for years of PC gaming? There is always something newer, better around the corner to whet our appitites for performance.

It's an evil plot to get all of our disposable income. (something I have less and less of as time goes by)
