3DMark 11

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.3.0

 

 

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.

None of the other systems in our chart even stood a chance. The MILLENNIUM absolutely dominates with an overall score of 17,389. The next highest score is just 6,790. That's a difference of over 10k points.

 

 

3DMark - Fire Strike Extreme

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.0

 

 

Fire Strike is a new test that is designed for powerful gaming desktops. We have checked the "Extreme" test option to make it that much more torturing on the system. Overall, CPU, and GPU scores are reported.

Again, the MILLENNIUM absolutely kills the other systems with an overall score of 15,145. The next closest score is nearly 10k lower. But you will pay for this performance.

 

 

3DMark - Fire Strike 4K

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.4.778

 

 

Fire Strike Ultra is a new test that is designed for powerful gaming desktops. This benchmark renders at 4K, putting an incredibly large load on systems.

This is our first system to come through the lab to get the Fire Strike Ultra 4K treatment. This will be a standard benchmark going forward. Without any comparison systems, it's hard to judge where this system stacks up, though I am confident in saying it is towards the top of most all systems.

 

 

Battlefield 4

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Origin Update

 

Battlefield 4 is the latest installation in the Battlefield franchise. We benchmark BF4 with a custom 60 second run played in a similar manner each time. Settings are 1080p and 4K for the resolution with the "Graphics Quality" set to Ultra.

We have finally tested a PC capable of playing Battlefield 4 at 4K resolution at Ultra Detail. The triple 980 system produces an average of 67.7 FPS. At 1080p, that jumps to 198.5 FPS. Stunning!

 

 

Crysis 3

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Origin Update

 

 

Crysis 3 is run at 1080p and 4K resolution with the graphics specifications set to "Very High." No anti-aliasing is used. See picture above for full details, aside from resolution. FRAPS is used to record 60 seconds worth of FPS data and recording starts at the start of the campaign and finishes most of the way up the tower. The game is played in a similar manner each time.

In Crysis 3, the MILLENNIUM produces 45.7 FPS at 4K, which is lower than we'd like. A detail drop could bring this up to 60+ FPS easily, so 4K gaming on Crysis 3 is totally doable. At 1080p, the MILLENNIUM jumps to 142 FPS.
