3DMark is the latest version of this hugely-popular synthetic benchmark. Making use of DX11 features such as tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading, it provides modern-day results and is available as a free download.
Hold on a minute, that's not what we expected. Given the numbers printed on the specification sheet, the Super JetStream should be up there banging on the door of the ROG Strix OC, so what's the Palit card doing slotting in just behind the stock-clocked Founders Edition?
The answer, it seems, is a very conservative boost profile. Our logs reveal that the Palit card would boost to around 1,850MHz during real-world use. In comparison, the Asus card routinely sailed past 2,000MHz. Super JetStream had no problem passing a 3DMark Stress Test - it flew through with 99.7 per cent success - but a Time Spy score of 4,130 is a tad lower than we'd anticipated.
