Cloud Gate

The Cloud Gate scene is more complex than Ice Storm, yet not complex enough to reveal differences between modern graphics cards. The graphics subtest provides some interesting numbers, though:

The GeForce GTX 690 stays in the lead. It will remain the world’s fastest graphics card until the GeForce Titan or dual-processor cards from AMD come out. Next goes the Radeon HD 7970 which is closely followed by the GeForce GTX 680. The GeForce GTX 670 competes with the Radeon HD 7950. In the medium price range we see the Radeon HD 7870 racing against the GeForce GTX 660 Ti and the Radeon HD 7850 against the GeForce GTX 660. All of them are factory-overclocked, of course. The pair of entry-level AMD-based cards is much slower than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, however, so AMD can only make them attractive by means of lower prices.

There’s nothing to compare in the physics test which now uses all of the six cores of our CPU:

We can only estimate the benchmark’s accuracy here.
