3DMark Fire Strike
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.
At both quality settings, the Radeon Pro Duo is faster than the two Radeon R9 Nano cards in CrossFire, thanks to the slightly higher sustained clock speeds on the new card. Compared to AMD’s previous fastest card, the 295X2, the RPD is 27-31% faster when we look at GPU scores directly. The dual GTX 980 Ti cards are faster though – 7-10% based on the 3DMark test that we compare.
