Ice Storm

Cross-platform benchmarking for basic tablets and smartphones

3DMark Ice Storm benchmark test

Ice Storm

Use 3DMark Ice Storm to compare basic tablets and smartphones. Ice Storm includes two 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 Ice Storm Extreme to compare low cost smartphones and tablets running Android, iOS and Windows.

Ice Storm Extreme raises the rendering resolution from 1280 × 720 to 1920 × 1080 and uses higher quality textures and post-processing effects in the Graphics tests.

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 an 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.

Stress Tests

Check the reliability and stability of your PC

Windows benchmark

3DMark Stress Test

Stress testing is a good way to check the reliability and stability of your system after buying or building a new PC, upgrading your graphics card, or overclocking your GPU. It can help you identify faulty hardware or a need for better cooling.

If your GPU crashes, hangs, or produces visual artifacts during the test, it may indicate a reliability or stability problem. If it overheats and shuts down, you may need more cooling in your computer.

VRMark Preview

Is your PC ready for VR?

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.
