3DMark Update Released

3DMark uses a component called SystemInfo to identify the hardware in your system. This patch updates SystemInfo to version 4.31.

SystemInfo 4.31
  • Updated GPU detection module to improve compatibility with the latest GPUs.
  • Updated CPUID module for improved hardware detection.
  • Fixed memory module detection on Windows 10 Technical Preview.

About This Software

3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your hardware. With eight individual benchmarks, you can test everything from tablets and notebooks to the latest 4K gaming PCs. 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 compare your scores with Android, iOS and Windows RT devices too.

  • The latest version of the world's most popular benchmark.
  • Includes eight stunning tests for DirectX 11, DirectX 10 and DirectX 9 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.

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, Fire Strike Extreme for high-end systems with multiple GPUs (Crossfire/SLI), or try Fire Strike Ultra, the world's first 4K Ultra HD benchmark.

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 compare low cost smart phones and tablets and Ice Storm Extreme to compare mainstream mobile devices running Windows, Android, iOS and Windows RT. Ice Storm Unlimited is a specialized "offscreen" test for making chip-to-chip comparisons of CPUs & GPUs. Ice Storm uses DirectX 11 feature level 9 on Windows. On Android and iOS, it uses OpenGL ES 2.0. You can compare scores across platforms.

Key Features

  • Includes eight individual benchmark tests.
  • Unlock Fire Strike Ultra, the world's first 4K Ultra HD benchmark.
  • Test multi-GPU systems with Fire Strike Extreme.
  • Test tablets with Ice Storm Extreme and Unlimited.
  • Explore your PC's limits with custom settings.
  • Use benchmark looping for stability testing.
  • Get in-depth interactive performance graphs.
  • Automatically save your results offline.

this is great to compare your system to others and really push it to its limits. Especially now that you can test your system at 4K without having a 4K monitor to see if you even have a chance of playing games at 4K is a cool feature. This is also great to test how much of a performance increase your overclocking will get you.

You press a button, some purty pictures appear, after some time it displays some cryptic numbers, and then, for whatever reason, you've got a warm fuzzy feeling inside :p 10/10

It's a good tool to estimate the performance of your PC. It's way more demanding than the AAA games I own, so if my PC does well on the benchamarks, then my games will run great. Good tool if you overclock and want to see if you messed it up.

This is a great tool to find out if your PC got what it takes to run games/applications. is your GPU out of date? This program will tell you. Does your CPU hold you back? It will tell you.

This really showed me where my PC was at and let me fine tune some things in order to make it run better and seeing how really expensive PCs run with their equipment allows me to decide on what next to buy in order to upgrade my PC without costing me an arm and a leg

Just when you think you have a pretty good rig. This program will smack that thought right out your head, Stomp on that dream, and crush any hopes of possibly obtaining that Master PC status again until tax time. 10/10

I have an i5-4460 and a GTX 970, and this wonderful piece of software gave me the CPU Bottleneck achievement.

11/10 would buy new CPU again.

This product is approved for NVIDIA products, I have two AMD GPU(CrossfireX 8GB) and it keeps telling my system is crappier than a single card 1GB However I know friends who have that card and can't even play Wolfenstein. While I can play it without a stutter, Its a biasted program and I am disappointed that I can't even unlock its achievements because of I am not an NVIDIA person.

3DMark is the latest entry in Futuremark's benchmarking tool franchise. It all started 15 years ago with 3DMark99 and the digits were all included in the title with the 2011 iteration, 3DMark 11, being the last. The latest version came out just last year with supporting practically all the latest effects and whatnot.

You basically launch various benchmark programmes that look like short films and they all aim to measure the processing and rendering capabilities of your CPU and video card, respectively. The higher the score the better the performance and your rig can be ranked accordingly (I guess there is some sort of leaderboard where you can check how your build can fare compared to others' worldwide).

I do not like how "massive" these benchmarks are and my high-end i5 processor coupled with a GTX660 is simply unable to make do in all this. Details can be changed just like you'd change graphics settings in a video game, still, some benchmarks provide me with outrageously low score. By low score I mean very low FPS which makes it impossible to enjoy some of the videos offered by the software.

Instead of the annual or biannual releases it would be nice to see a version that encompasses more generations so that everybody could get a decent performance depending on the settings. With the release of newer versions and making previous ones unsupported is simply not cool.

System requirements are misleading as it is HIGHLY recommended to have at least a high-end i7 processor along with the latest generation of Geforce cards (7xx or the best from the 6xx generation) or their AMD equivalents, naturally.

Oh, and achievements, really?

This game is the most pay-to-win game I have ever played. To have any hope of getting near the top of leaderboards you will have to spend at least 4-5k of your hard earned cash, and, to add to all of this, there is no gameplay to be found, just a series of cutscenes with no relevance to eachother at all. This is a grim sign of where the industry is headed.

A fantastic program for stress testing, the demo is all you need for single gpu systems, but if you have some extra cash i recommend the full version, the full version lets you:
Stress Test Multiple GPU Systems,
Lets you use, Firestrike Extreme (for 2+ gpu's)
Firestrike 4K test, and a couple others,
Achievements
--------------
and one of the coolest things about this program, there is a leaderboard, you can see who has the highest score, for example, at the time of writing this, 1st place for fire strike, has 4 980's and a score of 40,000 my high score with 2 760's is 9200

Couldn't handle firestorm at even 30fps. My epeen is deflated. Computer not worth any achievement score. Think i'll cry myself to sleep.
