3DMark is a popular gaming performance benchmark used by millions of people, hundreds of hardware review sites, and many of the world’s leading technology companies. Detailed graphs show you how CPU and GPU temperatures, clock speeds, and frame rates changed while running the benchmark. Explore the performance limits of your PC with custom benchmark settings. You can change the resolution and quality of the rendering in a variety of settings. Can your PC handle 4K games? Fire Strike Ultra’s 4K Ultra HD rendering resolution is four times higher than the 1080p resolution used in Fire Strike. A 4K monitor isn’t required, but your graphics card must have at least 3GB of memory to run this monstrously demanding benchmark. Download now!
It includes everything you need to compare your PC and mobile devices in one application. Whether you’re gaming on a desktop, laptop, notebook, or tablet, 3DMark for PC has a benchmark designed for your hardware.
3DMark Basic Edition includes seven benchmarks:
Port Royal (NEW!) Is the first dedicated real-time ray tracing landmark for gamers. You can use Port Royal to test and compare the real-time ray tracing performance of any graphics card that supports Microsoft DirectX Raytracing. In addition to performance benchmarking, 3DMark Port Royal provides a realistic and practical example of what to expect from ray tracing in upcoming games.
Night Raid is a DirectX 12 benchmark for mobile computing devices with integrated graphics and low-power platforms running Windows 10 on ARM. Run Night Raid 3D Mark 2020 Latest to test and compare laptops, notebooks, tablets and the latest Always Connected PCs. The test is especially suitable for DirectX 12 systems that cannot achieve high frame rates on the most demanding Time Spy benchmark.
WildLife is a cross-platform benchmark for Windows, Android, and Apple iOS. Use 3DMark WildLife to test and compare the graphics performance of the latest laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Wild Life uses the Vulkan Graphics API on Windows PCs and Android devices. On iOS devices, use Metal. You can compare benchmark scores between platforms.
Time Spy is a DirectX 12 benchmark for high-performance gaming PCs running Windows 10. With its pure DirectX 12 engine, built from the ground up to support new features such as asynchronous computing, explicit multithreaded, and multithreaded, Time Spy is the point of departure. Ideal benchmark for testing DirectX 12 performance. DirectX 12 performance test for Windows 10. Renders at 2560 × 1440 resolution. Includes demo, graphics tests, and CPU test.
Time Spy Extreme is a new 4K DirectX 12 benchmark, available in the Advanced and Professional Edition app. You don’t need a 4K monitor to run it, but you will need a GPU with at least 4GB of dedicated memory. With its 4K Ultra HD rendering resolution, Time Spy Extreme is an ideal benchmark for the latest high-end graphics cards. The CPU test has been redesigned to allow processors with 8 or more cores to perform at their full potential.
Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today’s high-performance gaming PCs. It is very demanding, even for the latest graphics cards. If your frame rate is low, use Sky Diver instead.
Sky Diver is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. Use it to compare systems with conventional graphics cards, mobile GPUs, or integrated graphics. It is especially suitable for systems that cannot reach single digit frame rates in the most demanding Fire Strike test.
Cloud Gate is designed for Windows laptops and typical home PCs with integrated graphics. The benchmark uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 10, making it suitable for testing DirectX 10 compatible hardware.
Ice Storm – Use 3D Mark Ice Storm to compare basic tablets and smartphones. Ice Storm includes two graphics tests to measure GPU performance and a physics test to improve CPU performance. Ice Storm uses DirectX 11 feature level 9 on Windows. On Android and iOS, use OpenGL ES 2.0. You can compare scores between platforms.
Use Ice Storm Extreme to compare low-cost smartphones and tablets running Android, iOS, and Windows. Ice Storm Extreme raises the rendering resolution from 1280 × 720 to 1920 × 1080 and uses higher-quality textures and post-processing effects in graphics benchmarks.
API overload test
Games make thousands of draw calls per frame, but each creates overhead that limits CPU performance. APIs with less overhead can handle more drawing calls and produce richer images. With the API Overhead test, you can compare the performance of Vulkan, DirectX 12, and DirectX 11. See how many draw calls each API can handle before the frame rate drops below 30 FPS.
