Download 3DMarkBasic edition for Windows- 3DMark is the world's most popular benchmark. 3DMark is the latest release of a benchmark designed to measure the performance of computer hardware, this update adds the new DirectX 12 Time Spy benchmark.
This version includes 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.
3DMark Time Spy Developed with input from AMD, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and the other members of our Benchmark Development Program, 3DMark Time Spy is one of the first DirectX 12 apps to be built "the right way" from the ground up to fully realize the performance gains that the new API offers. DirectX 12, introduced with Windows 10, is a low-level graphics API that reduces processor overhead. With less overhead and better utilization of modern GPU hardware, a DirectX 12 game engine can draw more objects, textures and effects to the screen. How much more? Take a look at the table below that compares Time Spy with Fire Strike, a high-end DirectX 11 test. 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. With its pure DirectX 12 engine, which supports new API features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading, 3DMark Time Spy is the ideal benchmark for testing the DirectX 12 performance of the latest graphics cards.
3DMark - The Gamer's Benchmark
3DMark is a popular benchmarking application used by millions of gamers, hundreds of hardware review sites and many leading technology companies. With its wide range of benchmarks, you can benchmark everything from tablets and laptops to the latest high-end 4K gaming PCs. Time Spy is available as a free update for all Windows editions of 3DMark, including 3DMark Basic Edition and the Steam demo.
3DMark Basic Edition / Steam demo - FREE
Benchmark your PC with a range of tests including Time Spy and Fire Strike.
This is a minor update to fix problems reported by some users. Benchmark scores are not affected with one exception - see the section about Fire Strike Custom runs below for details.
New Added Vulkan support to the API Overhead feature test. Use the API Overhead feature test to compare Vulkan, DirectX 12, and DirectX 11 API performance on your PC. The Vulkan test requires compatible video drivers with Vulkan support. Check with your GPU vendor for Vulkan driver support if your hardware is unable to run the test. Note that the Vulkan test replaces the Mantle test found in previous versions of 3DMark.
Please note that 3DMark API Overhead feature test is an Advanced Edition only feature.
Improved SystemInfo scan time greatly improved on X99 systems.
Fixed an issue that could cause the API Overhead feature test to fail to show a score at the end of an otherwise normal run on some systems.
Fixed Time Spy test to properly recover from a corrupted shader cache - if runtime compiled shaders are found to be corrupted, they are deleted and recompiled. Uninstallation also now completely removes the shader cache folder.
Fixed a scaling issue that could cause parts of the UI to end up outside the display area on 1080p monitors with 150% DPI scaling. UI will now scale appropriately even on high DPI scaling settings.
What are the system requirements?
The DirectX 12 test requires a PC running an up-to-date version of Windows 10 Technical Preview (build 10041 or later), 4 GB of system memory, and DirectX feature level 11_0 compatible hardware with at least at least 1 GB of graphics memory.
The DirectX 11 test requires DirectX feature level 11_0 compatible hardware with at least 1 GB of graphics memory and 4 GB of system memory.
On Windows, this version of 3DMark is the first to include tests for DirectX 12, 11, DirectX 10, and DirectX 9 level hardware within one application.
This update fixes an issue that affected the scores in the API Overhead feature test with DirectX 11 in the earlier 3DMark versions. In some cases, the issue led to more constant buffers to be updated than the actual geometries drawn, causing some systems to get lower scores in the DirectX 11 test. The scores from the API Overhead feature test with DirectX 11 from 3DMark v2.3.3693 are not comparable with scores from the same test in the earlier 3DMark versions. The benchmark scores for the API Overhead feature test with Vulkan and DirectX 12 are not affected. This update also fixes the Time Spy workload looping in Custom runs.
