3DMark is an essential tool used by millions of gamers, hundreds of hardware review sites and many of the world’s leading manufacturers to measure PC gaming performance. Futuremark say “Use it to test your PC’s limits and measure the impact of overclocking and tweaking your system. Search our massive results database and see how your PC compares or just admire the graphics and wonder why all PC games don’t look this good. To get more out of your PC, put 3DMark in your PC.”
In 3DMark Fire Strike, the GTX 960 again shows its relative superiority over the mobile GTX 960M. However, the Inspiron’s high physics score – higher than that of the Core i3-4160 – suggests a top-end mobile GPU like the GTX 980M paired with the i7-6700HQ would make for a very good gaming experience indeed.
