Benchmark Results: 3DMark11
3DMark gives us a fairly good idea about performance scaling, but doesn’t indicate playability in any specific game. We retained it for comparison to other articles. As we've stated in the past, though, you should not use this synthetic title on its own to make a purchasing decision.
An 11% spread between the fastest and slowest cards using the “Entry” preset drops to only 5% at its “Extreme” preset, indicating a reliance on CPU performance that somewhat diminishes the 22% maximum clock difference between cards.
