New graphics cards and motherboards that support the next-generation PCI Express 4.0 interface are coming soon. Today, we're announcing a new 3DMark PCI Express feature test, which will be coming to 3DMark this summer.

PCI Express (PCIe) is a standard interface that provides high-bandwidth communication between devices in a computer. New PCI Express 4.0 interfaces provide up to twice the bandwidth of PCI Express 3.0. With more bandwidth, games can transfer more data, reduce loading times, and support more complex scenes. 

3DMark feature tests are specialized tests for specific technologies. The 3DMark PCI Express feature test is designed to measure the bandwidth available to your GPU over the PCIe interface. It will help you compare bandwidth across PCIe generations with a test that's quick and easy to use.

Coming soon

The PCI Express feature test will be coming to 3DMark this summer. It will be available as a free update for 3DMark Advanced Edition and for 3DMark Professional Edition customers with a valid annual license.

3DMark is for gamers, overclockers and system builders who want to get more out of their hardware. With its wide range of benchmark tests, 3DMark has everything you need to test your PC's performance. Find out more.
