5 Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30 Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40 Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
60 Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 58fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
? Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.

Compare benchmarks

Overall benchmark performance

3DMark Ice Storm GPU

Multi-platform Ice Storm test shows the videocard performance by using the off-screen rendering method. Standard testing conditions are 1280*720 (720p).

3DMark Cloud Gate GPU

Unlike Ice Storm, Cloud Gate test elaborated by 3DMark employs more resource-intensive scenes. The better the final estimation, the faster your videocard is. The processing is carried out by means of DirectX 10.

3DMark Fire Strike Score

This is an advanced videocard benchmark. With DirectX 11 being used for conducting the processing, the normal testing time is 15 minutes. The higher the estimation, the faster the videocard is.

3DMark Fire Strike Graphics

Complex graphic scenes require all the videocard’s resources. They use the entire RAM and computing power. The test’s results can be viewed below.

3DMark 11 Performance GPU

This benchmark analyzes the videocard’s game power with the use of Direct X 11 (multi-threading, tessellation, shader computations).

3DMark Vantage Performance

This Direct X10-based benchmark contains AI tests, physics, and 6 computing tests.

Unigine Heaven 3.0

This test works for all types of videocards, has an innovative cross-platform core, and supports Direct X 9/10/11 and OpenGL.

Passmark

PassMark is a great benchmark that gets updated regularly and shows relevant information on the videocard’s performance.
