New 3DMark in Development, Teaser Trailer Available
Futuremark is nearing the end of development for the newest version of 3DMark, the go-to graphics benchmark, and the company has released a trailer for its newest test, Fire Strike. Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark designed to bring your hardware to its knees, featuring advanced rendering techniques that the company believes "are likely to become commonplace in PC games in two to three years time." You can view the trailer below, and it can be watched at the natively rendered resolution of 2560x1440 by selecting "original resolution" from the quality settings drop down on YouTube. Full details on Fire Strike and the other two new tests can be found on the 3DMark website.
