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.




Out of the gate, performance is strong for the XFX R9 280X Double D Black Edition OC. You can see we've got a nice boost over the reference clocked Visiontek model and a lead over the GTX 770 2GB in the Performance preset. Under the Extreme preset, though, you can see it falls back ever so slightly.
