Videocard preliminary testing is especially important in the presence of high loads so that the user could see to what extent the graphic processing unit copes with computations and data elaboration.

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).

Passmark

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