3DMark 11 Professional
3Mark 11 Professional measures Shader 5.0 (i.e., DirectX 11) performance. We ran this program at 1920×1200 using the “Performance” profile.
This program provides three different scores: graphics, physics and combined.
The graphics score achieved by the three CPUs was the same. This was expected, since this score measures the performance of the video card, not of the processor.
The physics score measures exclusively the physics performance of the system, a process that is typically done on the CPU. Here the Core i7-3770K achieved a score 4% higher than Core i7-2600K’s and 35% higher than AMD FX-8150’s.
The combined score shows a balance between the graphics and the physics performance achieved by each system being tested. Here all CPUs achieved the same performance level.
