About the Software

The new 3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your hardware. With three all new tests you can bench everything from tablets and notebooks to the latest high-end gaming desktops. It's the most powerful and flexible 3DMark we've ever created.

We designed 3DMark for gamers, overclockers and system builders who want to get the most out of their hardware. 3DMark is a complete PC benchmarking tool kit for those who are serious about performance. And it's no longer just for Windows. With the new 3DMark, you can now compare your scores with Android, iOS and Windows RT devices too.

  • The latest version of the world's most popular benchmark.
  • Includes three stunning tests for DirectX 9, DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 hardware.
  • Test everything from tablets to desktop gaming PCs.
  • Compare scores with other Windows, Android and iOS devices.
  • Compete for the fastest PC on Steam with Steam leaderboards.
  • Easy to use, no technical know-how needed.

Three New Benchmark Tests

Fire Strike - For high performance gaming PCs
Use Fire Strike to test the performance of dedicated gaming PCs, or use the Fire Strike Extreme preset for high-end systems with multiple GPUs. Fire Strike uses a multi-threaded DirectX 11 engine to test DirectX hardware.

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

  • Run each test individually for faster benchmarking.
  • Unlock the Fire Strike Extreme preset for extreme hardware.
  • Explore your PC's performance limits with custom settings.
  • Use benchmark looping for stability testing and burning in.
  • Get in-depth insights with interactive performance graphs.

System Requirements

    Minimum:
    • OS:Windows Vista*
    • Processor:1.8 GHz dual-core
    • Memory:2 GB RAM
    • Graphics:DirectX 9**
    • Hard Drive:3 GB HD space

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.

I click a button, it plays a cutscene, and then finally it gives me a big score.

A serious Game of the Year candidate in this Gamer's opinion.

This is a must have, the only gaming banchmark you need. If you think your gaming rig can handle anything, try running Firestrike on Extreme mode.

Personal Rating: "Worth Getting"
Platform: PC
Genre: Benchmarking Tool

3DMark is a benchmarking tool created by Futuremark Corporation and its sole purpose is to determine your computers performance in relation to your GPU (Graphical Processing Unit) and CPU (Central Processing Unit). The system runs three seemingly simple tests to the naked eye (although as far as I understand the last test "Fire Strike" manages to even bring the beastliest of computers to their knees causing them to weep profusely because they are not first-in-class). In fact first-in-class probably isn't even available on the consumer market as of yet nor will it be for a few years to come. With three variations on each test determining everything from DirectX (9, 10 and 11 are all taken care of here) and PhysX, every setting is given the full run around in this virtual Olympic stadium to see whether it compares favorably or whether you have components in your system that could eventually land up crippling it. At the end of each test the software compiles a useful report and even goes as far to compare your report to other users reports who have run the tests themselves as well as other high, medium and low speced computers currently out there on the market. 3DMark eventually grades your computer with a useful overall score.

Other useful information like how hot your clocks get for either GPU and CPU are also monitored and produced in the report at the end. This is especially useful for overclockers that are looking for that sweet spot with their hardware where they can safely push it to the limits without doing irreparable damage. All the options like v-sync, triple buffering, SSAO, filtering and texture quality are here for you to tinker with, with the actual report giving you a break down of your fps (frames per second) at the end of it.

This is a wonderful piece of software to own if and when you want to see how your current PC holds up or whether there is something holding it back, preventing it from reaching for the stars. At its current sale price of $2.49 any self-serving PC enthusiast should consider this essential software and head on over to the store front this very instant and pick it up immediately.
