Fire Strike Ultra - world's first 4K Ultra HD benchmark

The buzz around 4K gaming continues to grow, but can the latest hardware really deliver? And are the extra pixels worth the extra cost?

To answer those questions, we've created Fire Strike Ultra, the world's first 4K Ultra HD benchmark, available now in the paid version of 3DMark. Sorry demo users, you'll need to upgrade if you want to run Fire Strike Ultra.

Fire Strike Ultra renders the test content at 3840 x 2160 (4K Ultra HD) before scaling the output to your PC's display resolution. This means you don't need a 4K monitor to run Fire Strike Ultra, though you will need a GPU with at least 3 GB of dedicated memory.

You will be able to search for and compare Fire Strike Ultra scores for different hardware configurations on our website. And here on Steam, there's a new Fire Strike Ultra leaderboard where you can compete for the highest score.

3DMark v1.4.775

This is a major update that adds Fire Strike Ultra, the world's first 4K Ultra HD benchmark. Fire Strike Ultra is not available in the 3DMark free demo.

3DMark Update Released

3DMark uses a component called SystemInfo to identify the hardware in your system. This patch updates SystemInfo to version 4.30.

The patch fixes a compatibility issue with SystemInfo that can cause 3DMark to hang or crash when benchmarking systems with Intel X99 chipset motherboards and Haswell-E processors.

SystemInfo 4.30
  • Fixed a compatibility issue with Intel X99 chipset motherboards.
  • Updated GPU detection module to improve compatibility with the latest GPUs.
  • Updated CPUID module for improved hardware detection.
  • Possible fix for rare "systeminfo.getUTF8XML() returned null" error.

Four Benchmark Tests

Fire Strike - For high performance gaming PCs
Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today's high-performance gaming PCs. Use Fire Strike to test dedicated gaming PCs and Fire Strike Extreme for high-end systems with multiple GPUs (Crossfire/SLI).

Sky Diver - For gaming laptops and mid-range PCs
Sky Diver is a DirectX 11 benchmark that is ideal for testing mainstream graphics cards, mobile GPUs, integrated graphics and other systems that cannot achieve double-digit frame rates in the more demanding Fire Strike test.

Cloud Gate - For notebooks and home PCs
Use Cloud Gate to test the performance of notebooks and typical home PCs. Cloud Gate uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 10, making it suitable for testing DirectX 10 compatible hardware.

Ice Storm - For tablets and entry-level PCs
Use Ice Storm to test the performance of your Windows tablet, ultra-portable notebook or entry-level PC. Ice Storm uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 9, making it the ideal benchmark for modern portable devices. You can compare Ice Storm scores from Windows, Windows RT, Android and iOS devices at futuremark.com.

Key Features

  • Unlock Fire Strike Extreme for multi-GPU systems.

Steam version uses slightly more memory since it runs above Steam, but that didn't matter.

Recommended ONLY for PC savies or top notch benchmarkers to see how far their overclocking ability goes up to.
also recommended for high textures games (mobile too) developers.

If you do not understand about clocking, don't buy this software.
if you are new to benchmarking, don't buy, just use the free version.
