Today's big 3DMark update adds a new DirectX 12 benchmark test for 4K gaming PCs.

Time Spy Extreme is a benchmark for gamers who want to play at the highest settings, system builders configuring 4K-capable machines, and overclockers pushing the latest hardware for every bit of extra performance.

3DMark Time Spy Extreme - 4K DirectX 12 benchmark

Time Spy Extreme is the world's first 4K DirectX 12 benchmark test, developed with input from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, and the other members of our Benchmark Development Program.



With its 4K Ultra HD rendering resolution and a redesigned CPU test, Time Spy Extreme is the ideal benchmark test for the latest high-end graphics cards and new processors with 8 or more cores. You don't need a 4K monitor to run it, but you will need a GPU with at least 4 GB of dedicated memory.

Ideal for new multi-core processors

The CPU test has been redesigned to let processors with 8 or more cores perform to their full potential. Compared with Time Spy, the Extreme CPU test is three times more demanding. It also lets processors use more advanced instructions sets up to AVX2 when supported.



Time Spy Extreme Stress Test

This update also adds a new Time Spy Extreme Stress Test. Stress testing is a good way to check the stability of your system after buying or building a new PC, upgrading your graphics card, or overclocking your GPU. It can help you identify hardware problems or a need for better cooling.

Time Spy Extreme is available now as a free update for people who bought 3DMark from Steam after July 14, 2016, and for those with older copies who already own the Time Spy upgrade.

What's new in 3DMark v2.4.3819
  • New Time Spy Extreme benchmark test.
  • New Time Spy Extreme Stress Test.
  • Time Spy Graphics Test 2 no longer reloads between passes when looping.
  • Fixed an issue in the API Overhead feature test that caused the Vulkan part to fail on Intel integrated GPUs when using non-native resolutions.

Time Spy Extreme is the world's first 4K DirectX 12 benchmark test, and it's coming to 3DMark on October 11. You won't need a 4K monitor to run it, though you will need a GPU with at least 4 GB of dedicated memory.

With its 4K Ultra HD rendering resolution and pure DirectX 12 engine, Time Spy Extreme is the ideal benchmark test for the latest high-end graphics cards. The CPU test is three times more demanding and has been redesigned to let processors with eight or more cores perform to their full potential.

Time Spy Extreme will be released on October 11. It will be free for people who bought 3DMark from Steam after July 14, 2016, and for those with older copies who already own the Time Spy upgrade.

Our press partners have the test already so keep an eye out for early reviews for a taste of what to expect or check back here next week for more details of this exciting new benchmark.

Futuremark benchmarks use a component called SystemInfo to identify the hardware in your system. This patch updates SystemInfo to version 5.2.

SystemInfo 5.2
  • Updated CPUID module for improved hardware detection.
  • Updated GPU detection module to fix known compatibility issues and improve compatibility with the latest GPUs.
Known issue: The clock speed for AMD Ryzen processors still shows as "-1 MHz" as Ryzen CPUs do not have a 'stock clock' value for CPUID to read. We plan to include a workaround for this issue in a future update. Your benchmark score is not affected.
3DMark - FM_Tatiana
3DMark Windows v2.3.3732

This is a minor update. Benchmark scores are not affected.

Fixed
  • Various minor bug fixes to improve compatibility and stability.
  • Fixed an issue with the shader cache that could, in rare cases, cause a crash.
  • Systems with Ryzen processors now show the current clock speed on the Home and Result screens instead of '-1'. Other processor models will continue to show the listed stock clock speed.

3DMark Windows v2.3.3693

This update fixes an issue that affected the scores in the API Overhead feature test with DirectX 11 in the earlier 3DMark versions. In some cases, the issue led to more constant buffers to be updated than the actual geometries drawn, causing some systems to get lower scores in the DirectX 11 test.

The scores from API Overhead feature test with DirectX 11 from 3DMark v2.3.3693 are not comparable with scores from the same test in the earlier 3DMark versions. The benchmark scores for API Overhead feature test with Vulkan and DirectX 12 are not affected.

This update also fixes the Time Spy workload looping in Custom runs.

3DMark Windows v2.3.3682

This is a minor update. Benchmark scores are not affected.

Fixed
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the API Overhead feature test to fail at the end of the DirectX 12 test on some systems.
3DMark - FM_James


We're excited to announce that we've added Vulkan support to the 3DMark API Overhead feature test. This means you can now compare the API performance of Vulkan, DirectX 12, and DirectX 11 on your PC with one easy-to-use test.

Vulkan is a new graphics API that provides high-efficiency, low-level access to modern GPUs. APIs like Vulkan and DirectX 12 make better use of multi-core CPUs to streamline code execution and eliminate software bottlenecks, particularly for draw calls.

Games typically make thousands of draw calls per frame, but each one creates performance-limiting overhead for the CPU. Vulkan and DirectX 12 reduce that overhead, which means more objects, textures and effects can be drawn to the screen.

The 3DMark API Overhead feature test measures API performance by making a steadily increasing number of draw calls. The result of the test is the number of draw calls per second achieved by each API before the frame rate drops below 30 FPS.

Please note, the Vulkan test replaces the Mantle test found in previous versions. The API Overhead feature test is not available in the 3DMark demo.

3DMark v2.3.3663

This is a major update that adds Vulkan support to the API Overhead feature test. Benchmark scores are unaffected with the exception of API Overhead feature test, which now produces scores for Vulkan instead of Mantle.

New
  • Added Vulkan support to the API Overhead feature test. Use the API Overhead feature test to compare Vulkan, DirectX 12, and DirectX 11 API performance on your PC. The Vulkan test requires compatible video drivers with Vulkan support. Check with your GPU vendor for Vulkan driver support if your hardware is unable to run the test. Note that the Vulkan test replaces the Mantle test found in previous versions of 3DMark.
Improved
  • SystemInfo scan time is now much faster on X99 systems.
Fixed
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the API Overhead feature test to fail to show a score on some systems.
  • Time Spy will now properly recover from a corrupted shader cache.
  • Uninstalling 3DMark now removes the shader cache folder completely.
  • Fixed a scaling issue that could cause parts of the UI to end up outside the display area on 1080p monitors with 150% DPI scaling.
