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 charts show you how the CPU and GPU temperatures, clock speeds, and the frame rate changed during your benchmark run. Explore your PC’s performance limits with custom benchmark settings. You can change the rendering resolution and quality across a range of settings. Can your PC handle 4K gaming? Fire Strike Ultra’s 4K Ultra HD rendering resolution is four times larger than the 1080p resolution used in Fire Strike. A 4K monitor is not required, but your graphics card must have at least 3GB of memory to run this monstrously demanding benchmark. Download NOW!
Itincludes everything you need to benchmark your PC and mobile devices in one app. Whether you’re gaming on a desktop PC, laptop, notebook, or a tablet, 3DMark for PC has a benchmark designed for your hardware.
3DMark Basic Edition includes seven benchmark tests:
Night Raid (NEW) is a DirectX 12 benchmark for mobile computing devices with integrated graphics and low-power platforms powered by Windows 10 on ARM. Run Night Raid 3D Mark 2019 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 in the more demanding Time Spy benchmark.
Time Spy is a showcase DirectX 12 benchmark test for high-performance gaming PCs running Windows 10. With its pure DirectX 12 engine, built from the ground up to support new features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading, Time Spy is the ideal benchmark for testing DirectX 12 performance. DirectX 12 benchmark for Windows 10. Renders at 2560 × 1440 resolution. Includes a Demo, Graphics tests, and a CPU test.
Time Spy Extreme is a new 4K DirectX 12 benchmark test, available in the app Advanced and Professional Editions. You don’t need a 4K monitor to run it, but you will need a GPU with at least 4 GB of dedicated memory. With its 4K Ultra HD rendering resolution, Time Spy Extreme is an ideal benchmark test for the latest high-end graphics cards. The CPU test has been redesigned to let processors with 8 or more cores perform to their full potential.
Fire Strike is a showcase 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 benchmark systems with mainstream graphics cards, mobile GPUs, or integrated graphics. It is especially suitable for systems that cannot achieve more than single-digit frame rates in the more demanding Fire Strike test.
Cloud Gate is designed for Windows notebooks 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 2019 Ice Storm to compare basic tablets and smartphones. Ice Storm includes two Graphics tests to measure GPU performance and a Physics test to stress CPU performance. Ice Storm uses DirectX 11 feature level 9 on Windows. On Android and iOS, it uses OpenGL ES 2.0. You can compare scores across 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 the Graphics tests.
API Overhead feature test – Games make thousands of draw calls per frame, but each one creates performance-limiting overhead for the CPU. APIs with less overhead can handle more draw calls and produce richer visuals. The 3D Mark API Overhead feature test is an independent test for comparing the performance of Vulkan, DirectX 12 and DirectX 11. See how many draw calls your PC can handle with each API before the frame rate drops below 30 FPS.
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. It can help you identify faulty hardware or a need for better cooling. If your GPU crashes, hangs, or produces visual artifacts during the test, it may indicate a reliability or stability problem. If it overheats and shuts down, you may need more cooling in your computer.
