Download 3DMarkBasic edition - 3DMark is the 2013 release of a benchmark designed to measure the performance of computer hardware. This version includes three different tests, each designed for a specific type of hardware ranging from smartphones to high-performance gaming PCs. 3DMark works by running intensive graphical and computational tests on your hardware. The more powerful your hardware, the smoother the tests will run. Don't be surprised if your frame rates are low as 3DMark tests are very demanding. Each test gives a score, which you can use to compare similar devices and systems.
Unlike previous versions, there is no overall 3DMark score, only individual test scores. When testing devices or components, be sure to use the most appropriate test for the hardware's capabilities and report your results using the full name of the test.
The new 3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your hardware. With three all new tests you can bench everything from lightweight tablets to the latest gaming desktops. 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 Futuremark has ever created.

The gold build installer is 970MB, so a pretty hefty download. This is because it's essentially three benchmarks in one and has about three times the test content of 3DMark 11
Cross-platform benchmarking With the new 3DMark, for the first time, you can measure the performance of Windows, Windows RT, Android and iOS devices and directly compare scores across all four platforms. Check the Futuremark website for the latest information on cross-platform availability. Please note that the more demanding tests requiring more advanced hardware will only be available in the Windows versions of 3DMark initially.
What's New in 3DMark Windows Edition v1.1.0
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.
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.
- 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.
Complete Windows benchmarking toolkit On Windows, this version of 3DMark is the first to include tests for DirectX 11, DirectX 10, and DirectX 9 level hardware within one application. All three tests, even those targeting DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 compatible hardware are powered by modern DirectX 11 engines using Direct3D feature levels. The new 3DMark is best and most versatile benchmark we have ever created.
