Announcing new 3DMark Sky Diver benchmark
May 28, 2014
People often think that 3DMark is only for high-end hardware and extreme overclocking. Yet millions of PC gamers rely on 3DMark to choose systems that best balance performance, efficiency and affordability.
At Computex next week we'll be showing Sky Diver, a brand new 3DMark benchmark test for DirectX 11 gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. Sky Diver is the ideal test for benchmarking systems with mainstream DirectX 11 graphics cards, mobile GPUs, and integrated graphics.
3DMark - The Gamer's Benchmark for all your hardware
3DMark is the only benchmark that offers a range of tests for different classes of hardware:
- Fire Strike, for high performance gaming PCs (DirectX 11, feature level 11)
- Sky Diver, for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs (DirectX 11, feature level 11)
- Cloud Gate, for notebooks and typical home PCs (DirectX 11 feature level 10)
- Ice Storm, for tablets and entry level PCs (DirectX 11 feature level 9)
With 3DMark, you can benchmark the full performance range of modern DirectX 11 graphics hardware. Where Fire Strike is like a modern game on ultra high settings, Sky Diver is closer to a DirectX 11 game played on normal settings. This makes Sky Diver the best choice for benchmarking entry level to mid-range systems and Fire Strike the perfect benchmark for high performance gaming PCs.

3DMark Sky Diver will be on display on the ASUS, MSI, GIGABYTE, Galaxy, Inno3D, and G-Skill booths at Computex from June 3-7.
We'll be releasing Sky Diver as a free update for all editions of 3DMark. Further details, including the release date, will be announced at Computex and here on our website.
