Starting out with 3DMark 11 we can see a really nice boost over the reference HD 7970. Compared to the GTX 680 you can see we're a little behind at the Performance preset, but when it comes to the more intensive X preset, we're ahead of the reference clocked 2GB card, while the 4GB version from Palit manages to sneak ahead.
