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.

3DMark11 tells essentially the same story as the Unigine Heaven benchmark from the previous page. According the 3DMark11's Extreme preset, the new GeForce GTX 660 Ti cards perform about on par with the Radeon HD 7970, and have no trouble pulling ahead of the Radeon HD 7950, including the upcoming Radeon HD 7950 with Boost.
