  • Renders at 1920 × 1080 resolution.
  • Includes a Demo, Graphics tests, and a CPU test.

Port Royal

Ray tracing benchmark for graphics cards

Available January 8


3DMark Port Royal, the real-time ray tracing benchmark

3DMark Port Royal is the world’s first dedicated real-time ray tracing benchmark for gamers. You can use Port Royal to test and compare the real-time ray tracing performance of any graphics card that supports Microsoft DirectX Raytracing. As well as benchmarking performance, 3DMark Port Royal provides a realistic and practical example of what to expect from ray tracing in upcoming games.

  • Ray tracing benchmark for graphics cards.
  • Renders at 2560 × 1440 resolution.
  • Requires a GPU with DirectX Raytracing support.

Fire Strike

DirectX 11 benchmark tests for gaming PCs


3DMark Fire Strike benchmark test

Fire Strike

Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark for modern gaming PCs. Its ambitious real-time graphics are rendered with detail and complexity far beyond other DirectX 11 benchmarks and games.

Fire Strike includes two graphics tests, a physics test and a combined test that stresses the CPU and GPU.

  • DirectX 11 benchmark for gamers.
  • Renders at 1920 × 1080 resolution.
  • For high performance gaming PCs.

Fire Strike Extreme

3DMark Fire Strike Extreme is designed for multi-GPU systems 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 2560 × 1440 resolution.
  • For systems with multiple GPUs.

Fire Strike Ultra

Can your PC handle 4K gaming? Fire Strike Ultra's 4K Ultra HD 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 demanding benchmark.

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

Sky Diver

For gaming laptops and mid-range PCs


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 basic notebooks and home PCs


3DMark Cloud Gate benchmark test

Cloud Gate is a test for basic Windows notebooks and 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.

Ice Storm Extreme

For low-cost mobile devices


3DMark Ice Storm Extreme benchmark test

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.

Ice Storm

For basic tablets and smartphones


3DMark Ice Storm benchmark test

Use 3DMark Ice Storm to test and compare the GPU and CPU performance of basic tablets and smartphones. 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.

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 Vulkan, DirectX 12 and DirectX 11. See how many draw calls your PC can handle with each API before the frame rate drops below 30 FPS.

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

Stress Tests

Check the reliability and stability of your PC


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.
