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.



The GeForce GTX 780 Ti also took the pole position in the 3DMark Fire Strike benchmark. The card's increased clocks, additional cores, and ultra fast memory propelled it past the GTX Titan and allowed it to overtake the Radeon R9 290X as well. The detla separating the 780 Ti and 290X is relatively small, but the 780 Ti pulled off the victory here nonetheless.

But a custom cooled R290 is still the card to buy. Heck, at the listed prices you could get two R290 with custom coolers.

It all depends on the games you play and the software you use. Also price doesn't matter if you are looking at these type of higher end cards.

Let's wait and see what happens when mantle makes its debut in the market. Interesting times ahead.

Ought to be interesting to see what impact Mantle has. The 780 Ti is one beast of a card though!

How do edges look at 4k vs 1080p with the lower AA?

I would be interested in seeing a write up comparing image quality at playable frame rates on a 4k display vs 1080p. :-)

You definitely still need AA on a 4K display, IMO. I have a bunch of con-calls today. If i can squeeze in some screenshots w/ zooms, with and without AA today, I'll post 'em up here.

Ahh, the same rebranding, disabling, unlocking of chipset components and presenting it as something new. Fanbois will eagerly jump at the "- is best" notion. Anyways, It will be more INTERESTING to keep watch on the developments and implementation of key IP technologies that these hardware will leverage in the coming years - whether it will stagnate or surge forward.

Where is there a single fanboi in this thread?

Gonna go out on a limb here and say right above you. Thanks for the writeup.

Hahah.. that was funny Trev.
