Futuremark 3DMark11

The latest version of Futuremark's synthetic 3D gaming benchmark, 3DMark11, is specifically bound to Windows Vista and Windows 7-based systems due to its DirectX 11 requirement, 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 graphics cards here with 3DMark11's Extreme preset option, which uses a resolution of 1920x1080 with 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering.

The performance trend in 3DMark11 looks much like Unigine Heaven on the previous page. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super OverClock put up the highest scores once again, besting the reference GTX 680 and Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition cards by significant margins.
