ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II 1GB 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 DCUII are shown in the table below:

ASUS GTX 560 Ti DCUII  OC Zotac GTX 560 Multiview ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 Core
Performance +9.2% -16.4% +16.1%
Extreme +9.1% -14.2% +15.2%



With 3DMark11, we see the same trends we saw in the Aliens vs Predator DX11 testing.  The performance gains are more pronounced from the difference in the number of CUDA cores, although the overclocks still show a healthy boost, giving around a 9% boost for our sample.
