The number one in benchmark tool Futuremark will soon release the new version of 3DMark with new features that we exited to announce, they release the official press release including a FullHD video demo in addition to some technical detail about the software capabilities.
The next 3DMark will be the world's first unified graphics benchmark allowing testing of DirectX 9, DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 capable hardware through the DirectX 11 API, Futuremark will add a Windows 8 edition of the next 3DMark to take advantage of the next generation of Microsoft's operating system, the new 3DMark will be available later in 2012.
Bellow the press release high lights in addition to the demonstration video.
3DMARK DIRECTX 11 TECH DEMO
In the trade town of Scarport, buildings cling to canyon walls above canals of lava and provide shelter from the toxic volcanic atmosphere. Gaudy neon signs flicker as steam rises from the molten rivers running beneath the town. A trader walks along ledges carved from the volcanic rock, smoke swirling around her flowing cloak. Her robotic sentinels keep watch, but what dangers lie hidden in the shadows?
The 3DMark DirectX 11 tech demo brings this scene to life with intelligent tessellation and advanced volumetric lighting using real-time light scattering. The visible particles and clouds of smoke in the scene react to other objects using fluid dynamics simulation. Post processing, ambient occlusion and various lens effects complete the look.
The new 3DMark is currently in development and is expected later in 2012 following the launch of Windows 8. It will also be compatible with Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
