“MSI is proud to, once again, cooperate with Futuremark on delivering a new and defining graphical benchmark with 3DMark", says Charles Jiang, MSI Corp. Executive Vice President & DPS General Manager. "The new "Fire Strike" benchmark shows exactly how far today's gaming PC real-time graphics have improved to a point where it not only rivals, but also surpasses the quality of pre-rendered movies and has far more complexity than today’s leading DirectX 11 games. The cooperation on the "Fire Strike" benchmark for high performance Windows gaming PC's is a continuation of our efforts in delivering the best Windows gaming performance with our current 3DMark 11 record holding combination of the Z77 MPOWER mainboard and R7970 Lightning graphics card.”
