    Benchmark Settings
    Preset Ultra
    Renderer Enhanced Full Dynamic Lighting DirectX 11
    MSAA 4x
    MSAA for A-tested object DX10 Style
    SSAO Default
    SSAO Quality High
    Tessellation Enabled
    Test SunShafts

    This was a fun benchmark to watch since it basically does a series of flybys over the terrain in different lighting and weather conditions.  We choose to use the SunShafts test for these results since it not only looked the best but also taxed the cards the most.

    Results of this test mimic our 3DMark 11 tests showing the GTX card to have the upper hand.
