3DMark 11 Professional
3DMark 11 Professional measures Shader 5.0 (i.e., DirectX 11) performance. We ran this program at 1920×1080 using the “Entry” profile.
This program provides three different scores: graphics, physics and combined.
The Core i3-2100 is not able to run this program, since this CPU is not compatible with DirectX 11.
The graphics score of the A10-5800K was 25% higher than the A8-5600K, and the graphics score of a GeForce GT 440 with 1 GB was 7% higher than the A8-5600K, which achieved a performance level similar to the A8-3870K and the A8-3850. The score of the A8-5600K was 222% higher than the Pentium G2120.
The physics score measures exclusively the physics performance of the system, a process that is typically done on the CPU. Here the A8-5600K achieved the same performance level as the A8-3870K and the A8-3850, with a score 17% higher than the Pentium G2120.
The combined score shows a balance between the graphics and the physics performance achieved by each system being tested. Here the A8-3850 achieved a score 5% higher than the A8-5600K, which in turn achieved a score 4% higher than the A8-3870K and 72% higher than the Pentium G2120.
