ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II 448 Core 1280MB Graphics Card Review - Benchmarks- PCMark11

3DMark11 Professional

3DMark11 by Futuremark is the latest iteration of their "world's most popular" graphics benchmarking suite.  It's based upon DirectX 11 and "makes extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading."

We ran the four graphics tests of the "Performance" and "Extreme" presets to determine our system graphics score.  The four tests test the following:

Graphics Test 1

  • Based on the Deep Sea scene
  • No tessellation
  • Heavy lighting with several shadow casting lights

Graphics Test 2

  • Based on the Deep Sea scene
  • Medium tessellation
  • Medium lighting with few shadow casting lights

Graphics Test 3

  • Based on the High Temple scene
  • Medium tessellation
  • One shadow casting light

Graphics Test 4

  • Based on the High Temple scene
  • Heavy tessellation
  • Many shadow casting lights




The relative performance from the stock ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 Core are shown in the table below:

ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 (850MHz) eVGA GTX 560 Ti (950MHz) ASUS GTX 560 Ti DCUII (830MHz)
Performance +18.5% -5% -16.1%
Extreme +14.2% -1.9% -15.2%


With 3DMark11, we see the architecture advantage begin to diminish as the "Extreme" benchmark begins to saturate the additional cores and the memory of the 448 core, and the GPU-clock dependence becomes more prevalent between models.  However, the percentage boost from the overclock on the 448 core diminishes in the "Extreme" benchmark, while the regular GTX 560 Ti gave a greater difference between overclocks with the "Extreme" when compared to the "Performance" benchmark.
