DX11 Gaming Benchmark: 3DMark 11

Synthetic DX11 Gaming Benchmark

The latest version of Futuremark's synthetic 3D gaming benchmark, 3DMark11, is specifically bound to Windows Vista and 7-based systems because it uses the advanced visual technologies that are only available with DirectX 11, 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 new Ivy Bridge-based Asus notebook with 3DMark11's Performance preset option.


In 3DMark 11 AMD's A10-4600M Trinity APU performed relatively well. The A10's on-die Radeon HD 7660G engine easily outpaced the Intel HD 4000 series graphics of Ivy Bridge in this test and even managed to outpace a couple of discrete mobile GPUs. The recently released GeForce GT 600 series mobile GPUs, however, finished the test well ahead of the Radeon HD 7660G.
