3DMark Fire Strike and Fire Strike Extreme
Now that we have taken a look at our gaming tests using our Frame Rating metrics and testing methods, we are including a set of tests from standard benchmarks like 3DMark benchmark.
I consider these tests to be somewhat of a "best case" for all the cards in our comparison. We aren't using our frame capture system, we aren't measuring frame latency, nothing like that; I think this should give you an idea of graphics performance if each vendor had the best result for each game.
Interestingly, in both the standard and Extreme presets, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti cards running in SLI are reporting faster results than the R9 295X2. Of course these results are a lot less interesting and lot less important than the 6 pages of real-world gaming tests we just looked at. Also, the results for 3DMark shown by AMD in the guide sent to reviewers actually has the new dual-Hawaii option a bit higher than we have scored them here.
