Gigabyte GeForce GTX 570 1280MB SOC Review (Page 4 of 13)

Page 4 - Benchmark: 3DMark 11

3DMark 11 is available in three presets; separated into their respective categories of Entry, Performance, and Extreme. Entry is run at a resolution of 1024x600, Performance at 1280x720, and Extreme at 1920x1080. Released on December 7, 2010, Futuremark's latest program is more than capable of driving current generation graphics cards to its knees. And it did. It takes advantage of new DirectX 11 features such as tessellation, compute shaders, and multi-threading. Throughout the tests, it is really hard to argue against the performance of a completely stock GTX 570 -- not sure why you would argue against it, but just saying, haha. But what we can see here is how much of a margin the Gigabyte GTX 570 SOC has over a generic card, especially in the Extreme preset as shown above. I will let the graphs speak for itself.
