Starting off with 3DMark 11, you can see that the difference between both setups at the higher resolution Extreme preset isn't much at all.

 

As for the lower resolution Performance preset, you can see a bit of a gap separating them.

 

 

3DMark Fire Strike

Moving into Fire Strike, you can see the same kind of performance difference as to what we saw under 3DMark 11. While we do see a clear difference at the lower resolution standard preset, moving to the higher resolution Extreme preset pretty much puts the two setups on top of each other.
