Fire Strike is our new showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today. Fire Strike will only be available in the Windows editions of 3DMark initially.

Fire Strike performance increase isn't too bad. You can see we manage to break into the 10,000 point category in the standard run and 5,000 point in the Extreme one. Both numbers that now put the 290X ahead of the heavily overclocked GTX 780 Lightning.
