|Futuremark 3DMark Fire Strike
|Simulated Gaming Performance
Futuremark’s graphically intense 3DMark Fire Strike is designed specifically for gaming PCs. It has both Normal and Extreme modes: Normal runs at
1920x1080, while Extreme runs at 2560x1440. We used the extreme preset to test the Bolt 3.
The Bolt 3's frames-per-second measurements came in just below a system using a single Titan X card, which is what we'd expect to see—the GeForce GTX 980
Ti is pretty close to its performance, it just happens to cost a lot, lot less (making it a much better value of a graphics card). And, as we'd expect, the
system was outpaced by SLI-equipped rigs.
