- 3DMark Fire Strike Graphics
- 3DMark 11 Performance GPU
- 3DMark Vantage Performance
Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic enough graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.
3DMark 11 is an obsolete DirectX 11 benchmark by Futuremark. It used four tests based on two scenes, one being few submarines exploring the submerged wreck of a sunken ship, the other is an abandoned temple deep in the jungle. All the tests are heavy with volumetric lighting and tessellation, and despite being done in 1280x720 resolution, are relatively taxing. Discontinued in January 2020, 3DMark 11 is now superseded by Time Spy.
3DMark Vantage is an outdated DirectX 10 benchmark using 1280x1024 screen resolution. It taxes the graphics card with two scenes, one depicting a girl escaping some militarized base located within a sea cave, the other displaying a space fleet attack on a defenseless planet. It was discontinued in April 2017, and Time Spy benchmark is now recommended to be used instead.
Let's see how good RTX A3000 Mobile is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
Here are the average frames per second in a large set of popular games across different resolutions:
|Assassin's Creed Valhalla||79|
|Far Cry 5||111|
|Far Cry New Dawn||103|
|Horizon Zero Dawn||104|
|Watch Dogs: Legion||93|
|Assassin's Creed Valhalla||68|
|Far Cry 5||103|
|Far Cry New Dawn||98|
|Horizon Zero Dawn||89|
