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.

EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC w/ ACX 3DMark Fire Strike Details

3DMark Fire Strike tells essentially the same story as the Unigine benchmark on the previous page. In these tests, the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC with ACX cooling once again outruns the reference GeForce GTX 770 and Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, but the GeForce GTX 780 remained well ahead.
