SystemInfo Support

SystemInfo FAQ

SystemInfo is a component used in many of our benchmarks to identify the hardware in your system. It does not collect any personally identifiable information. SystemInfo updates do not affect benchmark scores but you may need the latest version in order to obtain a valid score.

The most recent versions of our currently supported benchmarks will prompt you to install new SystemInfo updates. Alternatively, you can update SystemInfo yourself from this page.

Note that Windows XP, 3DMark06, and PCMark05 are no longer supported by Futuremark. SystemInfo functionality on Windows XP is provided as-is without guarantees. From version 4.29 onwards, SystemInfo requires Windows XP Service Pack 3. If you wish to run 3DMark06 and PCMark05 on Windows XP SP2 or older, you should use SystemInfo 4.28.

While Windows 10 is in development there may be unforeseeable compatibility problems with some hardware configurations. Windows 10 Technical Preview is not an officially supported OS for Futuremark benchmarks at this time.
