Starting with 3DMark 11 we can see some nice performance out the gate which sees a strong boost in the Performance preset which helps come out ahead of the reference clocked HD 7950.

 

Moving to the higher end Extreme preset we can see a nice boost again over the reference clocked card, but we're sitting behind the HD 7950 in this case as the HD 7900 series of course deals with high resolution better.
