3DMark 11 is designed for testing DirectX 11 hardware running on Windows 7 and Windows Vista. The benchmark includes six all new benchmark tests that make extensive use of all the new features in DirectX 11 including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading. After running the tests 3DMark gives your system a score with larger numbers indicating better performance. Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark 11 is the best way to test DirectX 11 under game-like loads.
3DMark 11 suggests the GTX 960M has roughly half the graphical power of the desktop GTX 960. However, this is a synthetic test so it does not mean the GTX 960M will be hopeless for 1080p gaming.
