The range of 3DMark tests always give a great indication of the graphics performance, and also how good the processor is at rendering physics.
We see here the graphics performance increases that Kaveri yields over its predecessors. At stock values, both Kaveri APUs outperform the 6800K in every test (except Vantage Entry which we'll ignore for now). We also get our first glimpse here at how an increase in RAM speed affects graphics performance, and we're surprised by just how much it does! We see around a 10-25% increase in graphics performance by increasing the RAM speed.
This is also the first test we ran with Dual Crossfire enabled with the R7 250. The tests here should be well coded to suite crossfire performance and so we were expecting slightly higher scores. Nevertheless, they still give you a decent increase in performance by adding the relatively inexpensive card.
