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.
Coming out the gate with 3DMark 11, you can see that when it comes to the Performance Preset, the R9 290X has no problems outperforming our other single GPU offerings here.
When we move to the higher Extreme preset, though, you can see that the higher-end NVIDIA offerings have a good 10%+ gain on it. As for the difference between Quiet and Uber mode, you can see very little difference.
