We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Mittoni, Noctua and Corsair.


We've got a few cards with us today including the MSI HD 6950 Twin Frozr II OC, Sapphire HD 6970, MSI GTX 560 Ti OC and MSI GTX 570. Nothing else has really changed, so we won't delay and instead we'll just get stuck straight into it.


Let's get started!

3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world's most popular benchmark. Designed to measure your PC's gaming performance 3DMark 11 makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading. Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark 11 is the best way to consistently and reliably test DirectX 11 under game-like loads.




You can see with the extra few MHz we throw through the card we're able to get a nice little boost in performance. In the P preset we can see performance is similar to that of the reference HD 6970.
