Synthetic DirectX Gaming


Futuremark 3DMark11

The latest version of Futuremark's synthetic 3D gaming benchmark, 3DMark11, is specifically bound to Windows Vista and WIndows 7-based systems due to its DirectX 11 requirement, which isn't available on previous versions of Windows. 3DMark11 isn't simply a port of 3DMark Vantage to DirectX 11, though. With this latest version of the benchmark, Futuremark has incorporated four new graphics tests, a physics tests, and a new combined test. We tested the graphics cards here with 3DMark11's Extreme preset option, which uses a resolution of 1920x1080 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering.


3DMark 11 paints essentially the same picture as Unigine Heaven from the previous page. The GeForce GTX 690 simply decimates everything in 3DMark 11. It's almost funny to see those short, little bars for relatively powerful graphics cards like the GeForce GTX 580 and Radeon HD 7950.

>> Awesome card with awesome performance...

and awful price.

I don't see many of these sell, since the people who can afford them can get a higher resolution experience by just hiring live actors to act out the games for them.

3vi1 you must not be very smart, its 1000 dollars because 2 680 are 1000 dollars. so its a fair price.

so Der Meister, you want 2 680's for 600 dollars, well you keep waiting for that and tell me if you ever find that deal. dummy. if you cant afford a 690 or 680 for that matter then get a 670 for 400 bucks.

This thing looks like a killer card that I would be proud to display in my case :) I wish they made some 680s with the same cooling technology.

Why don't you compare it with 2x 6990... oh yeah... cause it'll be destroyed.

2 6990's in crossfire would be 4 gpu's vs 2 gpu's on the gtx690....of course crossfired 6990's would be faster.Do you know anything about pc hardware?
