3DMark Update Released

This is a minor update to fix problems reported by some users. Benchmark scores are not affected with one exception - see the section about Fire Strike Custom runs below for details.

3DMark Windows v2.1.2973

Improved
  • SystemInfo module updated to 4.48 for improved compatibility with the latest hardware.
  • The video RAM check that warns if your system may not be able to run a test now accepts extra main RAM beyond the minimum requirement as VRAM for integrated graphics.
  • We've added a DETAILS button to the panel for the Recommended test on the Benchmarks screen to make it easier to find more information and the settings for the test. This is also where you find the option to enable or disable the demo for each test.
Fixed Fire Strike Custom run settings

Unfortunately, the previous version (3DMark v2.1.2852) used an incorrect setting for Fire Strike Custom runs that resulted in slightly lower than expected scores. Fire Strike Custom run results from the previous version should not be compared with this latest version nor with any other version of 3DMark. The standard Fire Strike benchmark run was not affected, nor were Fire Strike Extreme and Fire Strike Ultra.
  • Restored the control for volumetric illumination sample count setting on the Fire Strike Custom run screen, which was missing in the previous version.
  • Fixed the default value for volumetric illumination sample count for Fire Strike Custom runs. In 3DMark v2.1.2852, Fire Strike Custom run used an incorrect default setting value of 1.5. This has been reverted to 1.0, which is the correct value for the test.
Other fixes
  • Fixed a problem that could cause 3DMark to appear to be still running in the Steam client after exiting, which then blocked Steam from closing.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Sky Diver from starting on 32-bit Windows.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Time Spy to crash when scaling mode was set to Stretched.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented DLCs from installing into a custom Steam library folder when the folder name included a space.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause result parsing to fail on complex systems with lots of devices due to the unusually large data set generated by the SystemInfo scan.
Known Issues
  • Time Spy fails to run on multi-GPU systems with Windows 10 build 10240, but this is not the fault of the benchmark. You must upgrade Windows 10 to build 10586 (“November Update”) or later to enable multi-GPU configurations to work.

Updated August 19, 2016
We have released a second, minor update to bring the Steam version number in line with the standalone version. There were no other changes in this update other than the version number.

3DMark Update Released

This patch corrects minor UI issues and fixes a settings problem with Fire Strike Custom test from the UI. Due to this issue, scores of v2.1.2852 Fire Strike Custom test from the UI should not be compared with any other version. All other tests and scores are unchanged.

3DMark Windows v2.1.2969

Improved
  • SystemInfo module updated to 4.48 for improved compatibility with the latest hardware.
  • Video RAM checks designed to warn you if your system may not be able to run a specific test now accept extra main RAM beyond the minimum requirement as VRAM for Integrated Graphics.
  • Recommended test on the Benchmarks tab now has “details” button to clearly show where you can find more information and all the settings for the test. Perhaps everyone can now find the “Enable/Disable Demo” setting in Advanced Edition easier.
Fixed
  • Fixed an issue with the Custom tab of Fire Strike missing the volumetric illumination sample count setting.
  • Fixed an incorrect default setting for Fire Strike Custom test. In v2.1.2852, Fire Strike Custom had an incorrect default volumetric illumination sample count setting of 1.5. This is now reverted back to 1.0 which is the correct value for this test.
This settings issue applies only to Fire Strike and resulted with Custom graphics test scores that were slightly lower than they should be. Fire Strike Extreme and Ultra had the correct default setting of 1.5. Command line version (Professional Edition Only) was unaffected by this issue as command line definitions contained the correct settings. Default non-custom runs were unaffected.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Sky Diver test from starting on 32bit Windows.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the result parsing to fail after completing a test run on a very “complex” system with lots of devices due to an unusually large SystemInfo scan data set.
  • Fixed an issue with Time Spy crashing when scaling mode is set to Stretched.
  • Fixed a problem that could leave a Java process running after exiting 3DMark and cause 3DMark to appear to be still running on Steam client, blocking Steam from closing.
  • Fixed DLC installation issue in Steam version that could prevent DLCs from installing into a custom Steam library folder that included a space in the folder name.
Known Issues
  • Time Spy on a multi-GPU system fails to run on Windows 10 build 10240. This is not a benchmark bug. Upgrade Windows 10 to build 10586 (“November Update”) or later to allow multi-GPU configurations to work.

About This Software

3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your hardware. With its wide range of 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.

3DMark is for gamers, overclockers and system builders who want to get the most out of their hardware. When you buy 3DMark on Steam you unlock all tests, settings, and features.

Better benchmarking with 3DMark


The right test every time
We've made it easy to find the right test for your PC. 3DMark automatically scans your hardware and recommends the best benchmark for your system.

Choose your tests
3DMark grows bigger every year with new tests. When you buy 3DMark from Steam, you can choose to install only the tests you need.

Hardware monitoring
Detailed charts show you how the CPU and GPU temperatures, clock speeds, and the frame rate changed during your benchmark run.

Custom settings
Explore your PC's performance limits with custom benchmark settings. You can change the rendering resolution and quality across a range of settings.

Benchmark Tests


Time Spy - DirectX 12 benchmark for Windows 10 PCs
With its pure DirectX 12 engine, built from the ground up to support new API features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading, Time Spy is the ideal benchmark for testing the DirectX 12 performance of the latest graphics cards.

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 with DirectX 10 compatible hardware.

Ice Storm - For basic tablets and smartphones
Use Ice Storm, Ice Storm Extreme, and Ice Storm Unlimited to compare smartphones and tablets across platforms.

Feature Tests

API Overhead feature test - Compare the latest graphics APIs
The 3DMark API Overhead feature test is the world's first independent test for comparing the performance of DirectX 12, Mantle, and DirectX 11. See how many draw calls your PC can handle with each API before the frame rate drops below 30 fps.

Stress Tests

Check the stability of your system
Stress testing is a good way to check the reliability and stability of your system after buying or building a new PC, upgrading your graphics card, or overclocking your GPU. Stress testing can also identify faulty hardware or the need for better cooling.

VRMark Preview

Is your PC ready for VR?
Experience an interactive preview of VRMark, our upcoming virtual reality benchmark. In this preview, you can explore two VRMark test scenes with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. But don't worry if you don't have a headset. The preview works with your monitor too.

System Requirements

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

    Please refer to the DLC pages for the system requirements for each individual benchmark test.

    * Windows Vista users will need to install the DirectX 11 platform update from Microsoft.
    ** You can use 3DMark to test DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 compatible hardware, but you will need a DirectX 11 compatible video card to run all of the tests. DirectX 9 hardware needs Shader Model 3.0 support, 128MB video card memory and WDDM 1.1 drivers.

I don't understand why, since the last update that comes with new UI, this app crash very often on my system. and whenever I want to benchmark, it took a while to load and to save the result.
please fix this problem.

I got 3DMark during the winter special for if I can recall about 20% (I might be mistaken)
I never really saw a use for it until I decided to give it a try as at the same time I had just updated my GPU.
I found that its actually an extremely useful tool, you wont use it a lot but if you need to check your computers performance compared to how it was a couple of days, weeks or months back this tool is perfect.

As an example a little while back I noticed my pc was slower than usual so I ran 3DMark and noticed I was getting a worse score than before, I then reinstalled windows, installed everything back up, ran 3DMark again and I was getting the exact same score as I was getting when I first installed my new GPU.

I am extremely happy I decided to try this out and how well it works.
3DMark should be on everyones library.

Massive 10/10 and worth the money.

Seems like a good program only problem is I can't get it to open up. All I get is the benchmark window and a spinning wheel that runs about 10 mins then shuts itself off. Don't waste your money.

Having purchased this a while back for $25, there was already quite a bit lacking. I kept my hope in the updates that Futuremark would release them overtime.

With the recent price increase and $10 extra for a damn update that I shouldn't have to pay for, along with the conversion to a DLC based system, this is a whole level of nope. "Advanced Edition", perhaps for a 8 year old starting out with his first PC rig.

If you're in the market for a benchmarking software, this is not it. I can only recommend it on some heavy +50% discount and even then, its a bit iffy. There's a lot better free options out there.

Bought it during a Steam sale and it's pretty cool getting at-a-glance benchmarks across your devices, and through their OS/hardware upgrades. It has several benchmarks tuned for devices ranging from tablets to hotrod gaming rigs. Each benchmark produces graphs of FPS, temperature, load and frequency, and the online comparison tool places your result next to a set of reference devices including the infamous "Vive/Rift Minimum Spec" (an i5 with a GTX 970).

My only want at this point is a more interactive comparison showing the predicted score of a hypothetical video card upgrade, extrapolated from 3DMark's results database. But as-is, 3DMark still provides some insights and instills some confidence in the performance of the PCs you own.

Used the free version for a while, works great. PAID to upgrade to the advanced version, now it's full of bugs? That seems right...

Demo version - smooth physics test in both Firestrike and Time Spy

Pad version - HORRIFIC lag at the 12-16 second marker in FS and TS

Deleted it, reinstalled it, same issue... requesting refund.

I love this program. I use it all the time. It's very helpful in terms of stressing my system for stability, thermal management, or just to simply see how I stack up against everyone else. I do a lot of tinkering with my system to see if I've found the optimal settings, and this allows me to test them in a wide variety of ways.

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.

most expensive program ever.

1. Buy it.

2. Run it.

3. Go buy CPU/GPU.

4. Run it again.

5. Repeat from step 2.

Some people don't seem to understand the purpose of benchmarking software. If that is you, then 3DMark probably isn't for you. Most games pre-render their cutscenes, as some computers can't handle them. 3DMark renders extremely complex scenes locally on your system. This allows you to measure the power of your setup, and see how it will perform in games. The other advantage is for overclocking. You can get a score before and after the overclock. This will give you a baseline to see how much improvement you've squeezed from a device with your overclocks. Additionally, an overclock isn't always stable once a card reachers higher heat, or you push it to its limits. 3DMark can also be used to test your stability. If you can run it for a few hours without a crash, your overclock is probably stable! On top of that, the scenes are a joy to look at, and really fun for showing off your computer when friends come over! If you are more than a gamer, a computer enthusiast, pick this up! You won't be dissapointed. If you want a free alternative, check out the "Unigine" benchmarks. They are fun too, but won't give the indepth details that 3Dmark will. -PR0XIDIAN

Steam version uses slightly more memory since it runs above Steam, so turning off Steam download while running 3dmark and turning off Friends (no overlay) is recommended while running the tests.

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 or new at benchmarking, don't buy this software, just use the free version.
Because, every money worth to its penny, and buying stuff that one unsure how it is supposed to work is a waste.

For anyone who bought this software,
do NOT let it dictates you on what your system is lacking. You only upgrades hardware that YOU need, not what 3DMark wants.
Finally, dont take it personally if 3DMark tells you that your system is below average,
afterall, YOU are the one playing those games, not 3DMark

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.
