3DMark Fire Strike and Unigine Heaven

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 more standard benchmarks like Unigine Heaven and the new 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.

The new GeForce GTX Titan X is about 32% faster than the GTX 980 in both 3DMark results and is 49-50% faster than the R9 290X. That's an impressive performance jump for a single GPU solution!

The results are very similar for Unigine Heaven as well, giving the GTX Titan X a 34-37% lead over the GTX 980 and a 50-56% lead over the Radeon R9 290X. The R9 295X2 maintains a lead of about 20% over the Titan X.
