Synthetic Benchmarks

Our new test suite now includes 3DMark Fire Strike and we removed the dated Vantage benchmarks to keep the focus on the most current and up to date benchmarks. Along with that we moved the Heaven benchmark into this section because it is a synthetic benchmark, even if it is using a normal game engine. With that we bumped it up to the Heaven 4.0 benchmark as well. So how did the MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost Twin Frozr 2Gb OC Edition perform? Well we knew about where it would be from the testing we did with the reference card. I was very curious how the overclock would change things though. In 3DMark 11 with the performance setting the MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost Twin Frozr 2Gb OC Edition pulled a score of 5734 compared to the reference cards 5328, a very noticeable improvement that also bumped it up past the HD7850 that we had tested in the past. With the extreme setting we saw similar results as well in 3DMark 11. The same went in both regular and extreme Fire Strike benchmarks with it pulling a 4122 over a 3875 over the reference card. Heaven 4.0 results show just over one FPS improvement from the reference card to the overclocked card, not a bad jump for being just a clock increase.






I went ahead and included Heaven 3.0 results just to show you where this card stands compared to what we have previously tested, but in the future we will be moving to the Heaven 4.0 benchmark.
