Download 3DMarkBasic edition - 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 version includesdifferent 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 Basic Edition includes six benchmark tests:
Fire Strike - for high-performance gaming PCs
Sky Diver - for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs
Cloud Gate - for Windows notebooks and home PCs
Ice Storm Extreme - for low-cost tablets and smartphones
Ice Storm - for basic mobile devices
Ice Storm Unlimited - an offscreen test for mobile devices

Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today's high-performance gaming PCs. It is very demanding, even for the latest graphics cards. If your frame rate is low, use Sky Diver instead.
Sky Diver is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. Use it to benchmark systems with mainstream graphics cards, mobile GPUs, or integrated graphics. It is especially suitable for systems that cannot achieve more than single-digit frame rates in the more demanding Fire Strike test.
Cloud Gate is designed for Windows notebooks and typical home PCs with integrated graphics. The benchmark uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 10 making it suitable for testing DirectX 10 compatible hardware.
Ice Storm Extreme is a cross-platform benchmark for low-cost smartphones and tablets.
Ice Storm is a cross-platform benchmark for mobile devices.
Ice Storm Unlimited is an offscreen test for mobile devices.
How does the 3DMark API Overhead feature test work? The 3DMark API Overhead feature test measures API performance by making a steadily increasing number of draw calls. The result of the test is the maximum number of draw calls per second achieved by each API before the frame rate drops below 30 fps.
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 Mantle test requires 4 GB of system memory and AMD hardware that supports the Mantle API.
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.
Use the new Stress Tests to check the stability of your system after buying or building a new PC, upgrading your graphics card, or overclocking your GPU. Stress testing can help you identify faulty hardware or the need for better cooling. Stress Tests are not available in 3DMark Basic Edition or the Steam demo.
SystemInfo module updated to 4.46 for improved detection of new hardware.Â
Reintroduced the option to set up a Custom run using only the Demo.
Fixed an issue that could cause 3DMark to fail to install test DLC files.
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.
