3DMark v1.4.828 update released (Windows)

December 1, 2014

This is a minor update. Benchmark scores are unaffected.


  • SystemInfo module updated to 4.32 for improved hardware detection.
  • Reduced hardware monitoring overhead (was already negligible).
  • Product key is no longer visible on the Help tab unless you choose to reveal it.


  • Fixed a memory access violation issue with Ice Storm and Cloud Gate that could occasionally cause crashes in stress testing scenarios.
  • Letterboxed mode now retains 16:9 aspect ratio even when selecting a non-default Output Resolution on the Help tab.

Professional Edition only

  • Fixed the "No outputs found on DXGI adapter" issue in the Command Line application affecting laptops with NVIDIA Optimus graphics switching technology.
  • Fixed custom_x.3dmdef files to use the centred scaling mode by default.
  • You can now change the scaling mode from a .3dmdef file and via command line.
