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.

Steel Nomad

Steel Nomad utilizes advanced graphics technology similar to what's found in the latest video games. It builds on the widely used 3DMark Time Spy benchmark and operates at 4K resolution, incorporating new features like volumetric skies and procedural grass. Additional graphic enhancements, including volume illumination, ambient occlusion, and depth-of-field, enhance its sun-scorched, desert setting, especially when viewed with HDR. To your right side, Steel Nomad, and to the right the output render of Steel Nomad Light. For systems with less power, Steel Nomad Light offers an alternative. Set during a moonlit night by a vast lake, this version scales down to 1440p resolution and simplifies or omits the most intensive graphics technologies for better performance on portable devices.

3DMark Port Royal
Real-time ray tracing promises to bring new levels of realism to in-game graphics. Port Royal uses DirectX Raytracing to enhance reflections, shadows, and other effects that are difficult to achieve with traditional rendering techniques. As well as benchmarking performance, 3DMark Port Royal is a realistic and practical example of what to expect from ray tracing in upcoming games—ray tracing effects running in real-time at reasonable frame rates at 2560 × 1440 resolution. 3DMark Port Royal was developed with input from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, and other leading technology companies. We worked especially closely with Microsoft to create a first-class implementation of the DirectX Raytracing API. Port Royal will run on any graphics card with drivers that support DirectX Raytracing. As with any new technology, there are limited options for early adopters, but more cards are expected to get DirectX Raytracing support in 2019.


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.
 
We’ve just released a major update for 3DMark for Windows that adds Night Raid, a new DirectX 12 benchmark test for notebooks, laptops and tablets with integrated graphics. Night Raid also has native ARM support for the latest Always Connected PCs powered by Windows 10 on ARM. Night Raid is available as a free update for all 3DMark users. But please note that custom benchmark settings and the Night Raid Stress Test are only available in 3DMark Advanced Edition and 3DMark Professional Edition.

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.
