The new 3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your hardware. With three all new tests you can bench everything from smartphones and tablets, to notebooks and home PCs, to the latest high-end, multi-GPU gaming desktops. And it's not just for Windows. With 3DMark you can compare your scores with Android
, Windows RT
devices too. It's the most powerful and flexible benchmark Futuremark ever created.
The latest version of the world's most popular benchmark is simply called 3DMark to reflect its all-round versatility. Not only is this 3DMark the first in the series to offer cross-platform comparisons, it is also the first to test different Direct3D feature levels within one application.
3DMark includes three different tests, each designed for a specific type of hardware ranging from mobile devices to high-performance gaming PCs. Each test gives its own score, which you can use to compare similar devices or systems. Unlike previous versions, there is no overall 3DMark score, only individual test scores. When testing devices or components, be sure to use the most appropriate test for the hardware's capabilities.
• Ice Storm - A cross-platform benchmark for mobile devices. Use it to test the performance of your smartphone, tablet, ultra-portable notebook or entry-level PC. Ice Storm includes two graphics tests focusing on GPU performance and a physics test targeting CPU performance.
• Cloud Gate - A new test designed for Windows notebooks and typical home PCs. Cloud Gate includes two graphics tests and a physics test. The benchmark uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 10 making it suitable for testing DirectX 10 compatible hardware. Cloud Gate will be available only in the Windows editions of 3DMark initially.
• Fire Strike - A new showcase DirectX 11 benchmark for high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today. Changes:
• DirectX 10 hardware no longer attempts to run the Fire Strike benchmark.
• Fixed a rare issue that could corrupt the saved product key.
• Fixed an issue with command line XML export of Ice Storm scores.
• Improved reliability when submitting results over an internet connection with very high latency.
• Updated SystemInfo to version 4.26 to improve hardware detection. Download: 3DMark Basic Edition v1.2.362
