Whether you're gaming on a smartphone, tablet, notebook, laptop, desktop, or a high performance gaming PC, 3DMark includes a benchmark designed specifically for your type of device. And it's not just for Windows. With 3DMark you can compare your scores with Android and iOS devices too. It's the most powerful and flexible 3DMark we've ever created.

  • The world's most popular benchmark.
  • Includes three stunning tests for DirectX 9, DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 hardware.
  • Test everything from tablets to gaming PCs.
  • Includes Ice Storm, Cloud Gate and Fire Strike.
  • Compare scores across Windows, Android and iOS.
  • Easy to use, no technical know-how needed.
  • Free online account to manage your results.

What's New:

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

Fixed

  • Fixed a SystemInfo timing issue that most commonly affected systems with the X99 chipset. 3DMark now waits for the SystemInfo scan to finish before starting the test.
  • Fixed a rare issue that could cause the UI to open on an empty white window.

VRMark Preview

VRMark is now available from futuremark.com and Steam. You can still install and run the VRMark Preview in 3DMark, but it is no longer recommended or supported. 

  • Moved the Preview from the main navigation bar to the Benchmarks screen.
  • Added an uninstall button to the VRMark Preview screen.

Fire Strike is our new showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today. Fire Strike will only be available in the Windows editions of 3DMark initially.

  • Designed for high-performance gaming PCs.
  • Extreme preset for multi-GPU systems.
  • Stunning DirectX 11 showcase graphics.

Cloud Gate is a new test that is designed for Windows notebooks and typical home PCs. Cloud Gate includes two graphics tests and a physics test. Cloud Gate uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 10 making it suitable for testing DirectX 10 compatible hardware. Cloud Gate will only be available in the Windows editions of 3DMark initially.

  • Designed for typical home PCs and notebooks.
  • DirectX 11 engine supporting DirectX 10 hardware.
  • Includes two graphics tests and a physics test.

Ice Storm works to test the performance of your smartphone, tablet, ultra-portable notebook or entry level PC. Ice Storm includes two graphics tests focusing on GPU performance and a physics test for measuring CPU performance. On Windows, Ice Storm uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 9. On Android and iOS, Ice Storm uses OpenGL ES 2.0. You can compare scores across platforms.

  • Designed for the widest range of hardware.
  • Includes two graphics tests and a physics test.
  • Compare scores across Windows, Android and iOS.

New test PR:

We're excited to introduce our new 3DMark API Overhead feature test - the world's first independent test for measuring differences in DirectX 12, DirectX 11 and Mantle API performance. It's also the very first public application to use DirectX 12 full stop. This is cutting edge stuff!

Developed with input from AMD, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and the other members of our Benchmark Development Program, the 3DMark API Overhead feature test lets you compare the performance of DirectX 12, DirectX 11, and Mantle.

The purpose of the test is to compare the relative performance of different APIs on a single system, rather than the absolute performance of different systems. The API Overhead feature test is not a general-purpose GPU benchmark, and it should not be used to compare graphics cards from different vendors. (We are working on a DirectX 12 benchmark with game-like workloads, which we expect to release soon after the public launch of Windows 10.)

Sky Driver Test

Sky Diver is a new DirectX 11 benchmark test for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. It's 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.

Together, Sky Diver and Fire Strike let you test the full range of DirectX 11 graphics hardware. Fire Strike is equivalent to testing a system with a modern DirectX 11 game on ultra-high settings. Sky Diver is more like running a game on normal settings. As a general guide:

  • If a system scores less than 2800 in Fire Strike you should run Sky Diver.
  • If a system scores more than 12000 in Sky Diver, you should run Fire Strike.

Please note that Sky Diver and Fire Strike scores are not directly comparable.
