3D Mark Vantage
3D Mark Vantage is very much a two headed beast here. On the one hand the P-Score indicates that the Intel motherboard is most definitely not making the most of our i7-3770K, especially when compared to the theoretically slower i5-2500K. However when we up the detail level to the Extreme preset we find that all three GTX570 results are around the same place.
This is in sharp contrast to the HD7970 result, where the P-Score from the i7-3770K is 2000 points ahead of an overclocked i7-950 and only 400 points behind our i7-3960X Extreme preset result. Good stuff.
3D Mark 11
As we move towards the much more modern 3D Mark 11 we find the differences all but evaporate. Both P and X scores are nigh-on the same regardless of the testing situation, with the HD7970 giving us scores that are really close to our i7-3960X tests.
