VRMark Preview and More Added to 3DMark

Futuremark, the company behind several popular benchmarking suites, is rolling out a big update for 3DMark. This update adds a new user interface, a more flexible design, and for the Advanced and Professional Editions, a VRMark Preview. Naturally VRMark will be a virtual reality benchmark when it releases, but for now users can explore two test scenes with the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, or their monitors, if they lack a headset.

The new user interface is designed to be faster and more flexible as additional tests are added. Already since this version of 3DMark launched, Fire Strike Ultra, Sky Diver, and the API Overhead tests have been added. To accelerate updating the suite, its internal framework has been rebuilt to allow individual benchmarks to be downloaded and installed independently. So if you do not need or want the Ice Storm tests, which are more geared for less powerful machines, you can leave them out. This applies to both the Steam and standalone versions.
