8% (up to) performance improvement in Aliens vs. Predator

3% (up to) performance improvement in Crysis 2

6% (up to) performance improvement in Crysis Warhead

10% (up to) performance improvement in F1 2010

5% (up to) performance improvement in Unigine with Anti-Aliasing enabled

250% (up to) performance improvement in TessMark (OpenGL) when set to "insane" levels
