Scan 3XS Vengeance GTX680 Z68 OC System Review
3D Mark Vantage
We've kept you hanging long enough. We know that what you really want to know is whether the LGA1155 Core i7-2700K is capable of pushing the GTX680 as hard as the Hex-Core i7-3960X we used in our GTX680 review.
I think it's fair to say it can, and then some. The P-Score is a fair bit ahead and even the X score is only 100 points behind. Considering this is giving up 2 cores that's hugely impressive.
3D Mark 11
So if it's good in 3D Mark Vantage, how does it do in 3D Mark 11? Exactly the same. The P score is actually better than we saw yesterday and the X result is only 37 points shy, which is certainly within the variance you'd expect from different runs.
