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. Only 80 million pixels are processed per frame. GT2 emphasizes particles and GPU simulations. Tessellation volume is reduced to 2.6 million vertices, but the number of pixels processed per frame rises to 170 million.

EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SuperClocked w/ ACX 3DMark Details

3DMark Fire Strike tells essentially the same story as Unigine Heaven on the previous page. The EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SuperClocked with ACX cooling is the fastest single-GPU powered card of the bunch, only the dual-GPU powered (and more expensive) Radeon HD 7990 and GeForce GTX 690 put up higher scores.
