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.
As we start off under 3DMark 11 we can see a nice boost in performance which pushes us over that P4000 point. We can see the gap between the HD 7770 and HD 6870 also closes a bit. Unfortunately for the HD 7770, the HD 6870 is carrying just its stock clocks and could still be pushed faster.
