Futuremark, one of the preeminent benchmark service providers out there, is gearing up to let loose a brand-new version of its 3DMark games exam. The brand-new suite will certainly hammer GPUs with a DirectX 11-based scene made to push a system to its restrictions. Now, benchmarks are hardly the sort of thing that people get thrilled for … normally. However Futuremark still sees a requirement to drum up interest for its Windows-only program in a yard increasingly concentrated on mobile games and power-sipping GPUs. Thus the trailer (which you’ll locate after the break) that flaunts simply exactly what 3DMark will demand of your following games outfit. Its visuals aren’t quite as jaw-dropping as Epic’s Unreal Engine 4 demo, or as over-dramatic as the Samaritan demo NVIDIA has been running for the last few years. However, it’s still an outstanding display of dynamic illumination techniques, fragment effects and fluid vibrant simulation. In particular the subtlety of the smoke is eye catching. For more information hit up the PR after the break.

Even though the spec is apparently dead, some of us may still want to tag numeric values to our gadgetry. The folks over at Futuremark seem to agree, and want to take their benchmark testing into new territory. According to Android.HDBlog, the company is developing its graphics benchmarking tools for the Android platform, both smartphone and tablet alike.
With quad-core processors on the horizon, mobile processing is about to step up its game. That said, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t have reliable programs that test our phones/tablets’ performance. 3DMark is already widely used among PC folk to test desktop and laptop computers.
The new 3DMark for Android will be able to conduct full graphics performance tests, compare results between various online devices, and compare results with the forthcoming Windows 8 version of 3DMark. No word on availability yet, but it can’t be too long before you’ll be able to put Android devices to the test.
Dual CPU, Quad GPU System Scores A Record 79k 3DMark Score Thanks To Plenty Of Liquid Nitrogen And Skill
I have two things for overclockers scene. First, I find you guys awesome and inspiring. I haphazardly throw fans into my case and hope for the best. Not you guys. Hells no. You know the proper voltage settings and cooling techniques to max out your system. *High-five*
Second, the pic above is of a rig that just scored a record 79,364 composite 3DMark Vantage score. Modders Vince â€œK|ngP|nâ€ Lucido and Illya â€œTiNâ€ Tsemenko used a pair of Intel Xeon X5690 CPUs on an EVGA Classified SR-2 motherboard with Corsair Dominator GT GTX2 memory modules along with four Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 GPU cards — all with liquid nitrogen cooling pots The result was record breaking as they took the CPUs up to 5.62GHz each and overclocked the GPUs to 1,190MHz. Sure, the whole thing isn’t practical and won’t likely increase your Team Fortress 2 skills, but overclocking leads to innovation, which eventually trickles into normal systems that you and I use.
