New 3DMark benchmark for Windows, macOS, iOS and Android
May 3, 2021
Last year we released 3DMark Wild Life, a cross-platform benchmark for Android, iOS and Windows.
Today we are releasing 3DMark Wild Life Extreme, a more demanding cross-platform benchmark for comparing the graphics performance of mobile computing devices such as Windows notebooks, Always Connected PCs powered by Windows 10 on Arm, Apple Mac computers powered by the M1 chip, and the next generation of smartphones and tablets.
3DMark Wild Life Extreme is available now for Windows, macOS systems powered by Apple M1, iOS and Android.
3DMark Wild Life Extreme—a more demanding cross-platform benchmark
3DMark Wild Life Extreme is a new cross-platform benchmark for Apple, Android and Windows devices. Run Wild Life Extreme to test and compare the graphics performance of the latest Windows notebooks, Always Connected PCs powered by Windows 10 on Arm, Apple Mac computers powered by the M1 chip, and the next generation of smartphones and tablets.
3DMark Wild Life Extreme includes new effects, enhanced geometry and more particles, making it over three times more demanding than the Wild Life benchmark. The test uses a 3840 × 2160 (4K UHD) rendering resolution before scaling the content to the display.
Wild Life Extreme uses the Vulkan API on Android and Windows. On iOS and Mac, it uses Metal. On Windows 10 on Arm, it uses DirectX 12. You can compare scores across platforms and across APIs.
Compare Windows laptops and new Apple Mac computers powered by M1
Run 3DMark Wild Life Extreme to test and compare the GPU performance of the latest Windows notebooks, Always Connected PCs powered by Windows 10 on Arm, and Apple Mac computers powered by the M1 chip. The faster the benchmark runs, the higher the score and the better the performance.
Setting the bar for the next generation of mobile devices
3DMark Wild Life Extreme sets a high bar for the next generation of Android and iOS devices. Don’t be surprised if the frame rate is low as the test is too heavy for many current phones and tablets.
Two ways to test GPU performance
3DMark Wild Life Extreme offers two ways to test graphics performance: a quick benchmark that measures instant performance and a longer test that shows how your device performs under longer periods of heavy load.
Run the 3DMark Wild Life Extreme benchmark to measure a device’s ability to provide high performance for short periods. Use the score to compare GPU performance across platforms.
The 3DMark Wild Life Extreme Stress Test is a longer test that shows how a device performs under longer periods of heavy load. Instead of producing a single score, the main result from the stress test is a chart showing how your device manages performance and heat during heavy use.
More than a score
3DMark is a benchmarking app that gives you more than a score. With its detailed charts, lists and rankings, 3DMark gives you deep insights into the performance of Android and iOS devices.
On Windows, 3DMark makes it easy to compare your benchmark score with results from other systems with the same components. 3DMark also helps you relate your 3DMark score to real-world game performance by estimating the frame rate you can expect in a selection of popular games.
3DMark Wild Life Extreme for Windows PCs
Wild Life Extreme is available as a free update for 3DMark Professional Edition customers with a valid annual license.
3DMark Wild Life Extreme for Android devices
Wild Life Extreme is available now as a free update for the 3DMark Android benchmark app from Google Play. Your device must have Android 10 or later and Vulkan Anisotropy feature support (level 16 and above) to run the Wild Life Extreme benchmark.
3DMark Wild Life Extreme for iOS and macOS devices
Wild Life Extreme is available from the Apple App Store in our free 3DMark Wild Life iOS benchmark app. On iOS, compatibility starts with iPhone 7 Plus and runs to the latest models. On macOS, the benchmark is compatible with Apple Mac computers powered by the M1 chip.
