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.
Starting off with 3DMark 11 you can see the numbers look good for the GTX 780 with it sitting ahead of the HD 7970 GHz Edition at both presets.
The performance at the higher Extreme preset against the HD 7970 GHz Edition looks great, when we move to the higher resolution we see that the AMD offering tends to sit a lot closer to the NVIDIA ones. With the wider memory bus, though, and the increase in other key areas, we should see NVIDIA stay strong at the higher resolution.
