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.


Reference GeForce GTX 760 3DMark Fire Strike Run

3DMark Fire Strike tells a somewhat different story then Unigine Heaven. Both of the GeForce GTX 760 cards we tested outperformed the GeForce GTX 660 Ti and trailed the GeForce GTX 770, but in this benchmark the Radeon HD 7950 was a tad faster than the 760.

I have a 660 Ti. I think I'll wait for a new architecture in the 800 series before I upgrade.

Nice review Marco, that's a good pair of cards for a good price.

If I hadn't just bought two EVGA GTX-680s recently, I would be interested in them.

These 700 series are nice for those who still have a 500 or lesser series cards, but anyone with a 600 series ought wait for the 800's. I have a 660 ti and i know for sure that I'll be waiting for the 860 ti before I upgrade.

I really want to get a new graphics card but at the same time, if I do I might need to change my motherboard and processor and everything else too. I really want to get this one though the specs are looking amazing.

Interesting, but I'm more interested in a 660TI seems to work in similar maner, and can run most games on high or ultra.

I'll stick with the 780, thank you.

Can someone explain the difference in geforce or evga and that sort of thing? i just bought, a 680Ti for my gaming computer, nothing too hard core but i was always curios if its based on nvidia, do they license to evga or what?
