Fire Strike, Fire Strike Extreme, Fire Strike Ultra. Fire Strike includes two graphics tests, a physics test and a combined test that stresses the CPU and GPU.

3DMark Fire Strike Graphics

3DMark Fire Strike for Graphics Cards helps you determine performance in a state-of-the-art synthetic test that consists of two levels - physical and combined testing.

3DMark 11 Performance GPU

The result of the 3DMark 11 benchmark evaluation supports tessellation, compute shaders and graphics card multithreading will show which graphics card model is better and faster in games. The higher the score of the video card in the 3DMark 11 benchmark, the better.

Passmark GPU

Passmark is an effective benchmark that displays true results on the speed of data processing by GPU cores. We present the results of the evaluation of the performance of a video card in the modern Passmark benchmark, which evaluates the performance of a video card using its own rendering algorithms. The higher the score, the more powerful the graphics card.
