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.
Hot on the heels of all the hardware announcements at Computex, our new 3DMark Sky Diver benchmark test is ready to download and use today. Every single 3DMark user - more than a million and counting - will get Sky Diver as a free update. For new users, Sky Diver is unlocked and ready to use in all editions of 3DMark.
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.
While testing the 3DMark Sky Diver benchmark, NVIDIA discovered an issue where some of their GPU configurations would render a black screen during benchmarking. NVIDIA has since solved the issue for these configurations and will be including the fix with their next driver installment coming early next week. In the interim, if you experience this issue with your configuration please use the 335.23 WHQL driver.
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.
Futuremark will offer three versions:
3DMark Basic Edition - FREE

Export results as XML.
The build installer is 1.5 GB, so that is 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
This is a major update that adds Sky Diver, a new DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. Sky Diver is ideal for testing systems with mainstream graphics cards, mobile GPUs, integrated graphics and other DirectX 11 hardware that cannot achieve double-digit frame rates in Fire Strike.
You can now run benchmarks individually in 3DMark Basic Edition.
SystemInfo module updated to 4.29 for improved hardware detection.
On Windows 7, Service Pack 1 is required for 3DMark version 1.3.XXX onwards.
Professional Edition only - The filenames of the .3dmdef definition files used for running 3DMark from the command line have changed with this release. You may need to update your existing scripts if using automation.
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.
