One benchmark for all your devices

3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your hardware in one app. Whether you're gaming on a smart phone, tablet, notebook, laptop, desktop, or a high performance gaming PC, 3DMark includes a benchmark designed specifically for your type of device. And it's not just for Windows. You can compare your scores with Android and iOS devices too. It's the best 3DMark we've ever created.

  • The latest version of the world's most popular benchmark.
  • Everything you need to test your PC, notebook, tablet and smart phone in one app.
  • Includes new Fire Strike Ultra test for 4K gaming PCs.
  • Compare your 3DMark scores with other Windows, Android and iOS devices.

Fire Strike

For high performance Windows gaming PCs

Windows benchmark

3DMark Fire Strike benchmark test

Fire Strike

Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today's high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today.

Fire Strike is only available in the Windows editions.

  • DirectX 11 benchmark for gamers
  • Renders at 1080p resolution (1920 x 1080)
  • For high performance PCs.

Fire Strike Extreme

3DMark Fire Strike Extreme is an enhanced version of Fire Strike designed for high-end multi-GPU systems (SLI / Crossfire) and future hardware generations.

In addition to raising the rendering resolution, additional visual quality improvements increase the rendering load to ensure accurate performance measurements for truly extreme hardware setups.

  • Enhanced for extreme hardware.
  • Renders at 1440p resolution (2560 x 1440)
  • For systems with multiple GPUs.

Fire Strike Ultra

Can your PC handle the world's first 4K gaming benchmark? Fire Strike Ultra's 4K UHD rendering resolution is four times larger than the 1080p resolution used in Fire Strike.

A 4K monitor is not required, but your graphics card must have at least 3GB of memory to run this monstrously demanding benchmark.

  • The world's first 4K gaming benchmark
  • Renders at 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160)
  • The most demanding 3DMark test ever.

Sky Diver

For gaming laptops and mid-range PCs

Windows benchmark

3DMark Sky Diver benchmark test

3DMark Sky Diver is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. Use 3DMark Sky Diver to benchmark systems with mainstream graphics cards, mobile GPUs, or integrated graphics. It is especially suitable for DirectX 11 systems that cannot achieve more than single-digit frame rates in the more demanding Fire Strike test. Sky Diver is only available in the Windows editions at this time.

  • DirectX 11 benchmark for mainstream PCs.
  • Includes Graphics, Physics and Combined tests.
  • Breathtaking demo with an original soundtrack.

Cloud Gate

For Windows notebooks and home PCs

Windows benchmark

3DMark Cloud Gate benchmark test

Cloud Gate is a new test that is designed for Windows notebooks and typical home PCs. Cloud Gate includes two graphics tests and a physics test. Cloud Gate uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 10 making it suitable for testing DirectX 10 compatible hardware. Cloud Gate is only available in the Windows editions of 3DMark at this time.

  • Designed for typical home PCs and notebooks.
  • DirectX 11 engine supporting DirectX 10 hardware.
  • Includes two Graphics tests and a Physics test.

Ice Storm

Cross-platform benchmarking for Android, iOS and Windows mobile devices

3DMark Ice Storm benchmark test

Ice Storm

Use 3DMark Ice Storm to compare low cost smart phones and tablets. Ice Storm includes two 720p Graphics tests to measure GPU performance and a Physics test to stress CPU performance. Ice Storm uses DirectX 11 feature level 9 on Windows. On Android and iOS, it uses OpenGL ES 2.0. You can compare scores across platforms.

Ice Storm Unlimited is a specialized "offscreen" test for making chip-to-chip comparisons of CPUs & GPUs.

Ice Storm Extreme

Use 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme to make device-to-device comparisons of mainstream mobile devices running Windows, Android, iOS and Windows RT.

Ice Storm Extreme raises the rendering resolution from 720p to 1080p and uses higher quality textures and post-processing effects in the Graphics tests to create a more demanding load for the latest smart phones and tablets.

API Overhead feature test

Compare the latest graphics APIs on your PC

3DMark API Overhead feature test

Games make thousands of draw calls per frame, but each one creates performance-limiting overhead for the CPU. APIs with less overhead can handle more draw calls and produce richer visuals. The 3DMark API Overhead feature test is the world's first independent test for comparing the performance of DirectX 12, Mantle, and DirectX 11. See how many draw calls your PC can handle with each API before the frame rate drops below 30 fps.

  • Test DirectX 12, (Windows 10 required).
  • Test Mantle, (with compatible AMD hardware).
  • Test DirectX 11, both single- and multi-threaded.

Hard drive 3 GB free space


Windows Vista users must have Service Pack 2 and the DirectX 11 platform update from Microsoft. Windows 7 users must have Service Pack 1. 3DMark can test DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 compatible hardware, but to run every benchmark you will need hardware that supports all DirectX 11 features.

How to test DirectX 12 with the API Overhead feature test

The DirectX 12 part of the API Overhead feature test requires Windows 10, graphics hardware that supports DirectX 12, and the appropriate drivers. DirectX 12 is not yet supported on all DirectX 11 level hardware. Check with your video hardware vendor for the latest drivers. The API Overhead feature test does not yet support multi-GPU systems, and you may need to disable Crossfire/SLI. Close other apps that tie into the DirectX stack, for example applications like FRAPS that draw overlays. Apps that are not compatible with DirectX 12 will prevent the test from running.

How to test Mantle with the API Overhead feature test

The Mantle test requires an AMD device that supports the Mantle API.
