3DMark 11 and 3DMark Cloud Gate

Next, we checked out the workstation’s graphics capabilities, using Futuremark’s 3DMark benchmarks for comparison.

Futuremark 3DMark 11 measures your system’s DirectX 11 graphics performance. The processor and memory influence the score, but the GPU naturally plays a major role.

The Precision 15 5510 blew our other systems out of the water in this test. To be fair, many of them aren’t equipped to handle graphics processing as well as Dell’s latest workstation. Still, the system clearly has a powerful GPU onboard.

The newer 3DMark suite breaks its tests down by computer type. Fire Strike, for example, is aimed at high-end gaming desktops. Cloud Gate, on the other hand, is designed for more mainstream notebooks. As with 3DMark 11, the GPU plays a large role in results, which are measured in points. Higher is better.
