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.

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.
