Fire Strike is our new showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today. Fire Strike will only be available in the Windows editions of 3DMark initially.




Fire Strike is one of our more recent benchmarks, and for that reason, you can see not all our cards have been benchmarked. Compared to the quite heavily overclocked MSI GTX 780 Lightning, you can see that both cards are fairly close to each other.


At stock the AMD R9 290X would outperform the GTX 780. As for Quiet and Uber mode, you can see again very little difference is seen in both presets. We're hoping this isn't a trend that continues throughout all of our testing here today.
