As seen in our game tests, 3DMark gets a greater benefit from Gigabyte’s top GPU clock than it does from MSI’s top graphics memory frequency.
We would have expected 3DMark’s Extreme preset to start pushing the limits of graphics memory capacity, but that didn’t happen. The reference Radeon HD 6950 remains at the bottom, even though it has twice the RAM.
