Futuremark looks beyond the PC with new 3DMark

Jim Norris | May 7, 2013
Futuremark is busy these days shaking up their benchmarking business, and the new 3DMark is proof that nothing is off the table. PC, WinRT, Android and iOS support are all planned, although the Windows and Android versions are currently the only ones available.

Nevertheless, the scope here is greater than previous 3DMark updates, and the overhaul is mostly successful and complete. Longtime 3DMark users will notice that some details available in previous versions are missing from the more streamlined results available here.

While this is sure to spark forum wars, the appearance of other long-awaited features such as temperature monitoring seem more relevant to gamers today and a better expenditure of the limited programming resources available to the Futuremark team.

Besides, this leaves room for improvement for the next version. Whatever they eventually decide to call it.

Note: The Download button takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
