Futuremark SystemInfo updated to v4.20. SystemInfo is a component used in many Futuremark benchmarks to identify the hardware in your system. It does not collect any personally identifiable information. SystemInfo updates do not affect benchmark scores but you may need the latest version in order to get a valid score.
Futuremark SystemInfo v4.20 release notes: • Updated CPUID module for improved hardware detection. • Updated AMD ADL library for improved compatibility with latest hardware. • Improved hardware scan speed by about 50%. • Added Windows 8 RTC verification to online result validation.
This update adds the Ice Storm Extreme test and fixes issues when testing systems with multiple GPUs. 3DMark scores will increase slightly on systems with two GPUs and significantly on systems with three or four GPUs.
NEW The Ice Storm Extreme benchmark test has been added to 3DMark Advanced Edition. Ice Storm Extreme is a Direct3D feature level 9 benchmark test for Windows tablets, ultrabooks and notebooks. Ice Storm Extreme raises the rendering resolution from 720p to 1080p and uses higher quality textures and post-processing effects in the graphics tests to create a more demanding load for the latest mobile devices. You can compare Ice Storm and Ice Storm Extreme scores from Windows and Android devices.
FIXED - 3DMark now works correctly on systems with up to four GPUs. - Fixed the issue caused by Windows update KB2670838, which added partial DX11.1 support to Windows 7. - Fixed a problem with the bloom post-processing effect when using very high rendering resolutions in custom settings.
