3DMark update fixes issues with multiple GPUs
May 6, 2013
We know that many of you have been waiting a long time for this, and that's why we are both happy and relieved to announce that...
3DMark now works correctly on systems with multiple GPUs
That one short line in the release notes really doesn't do justice to the staggering amount of work taken to get to this point. What we initially thought was a minor driver issue turned out to be far more complicated.
For the last few months our programmers have been poring over every line of engine code trying to understand why 3DMark was not returning accurate results from systems with three or four GPUs. It has been slow, frustrating work and we are truly sorry that it has taken so long.
The good news is that with this update 3DMark is now ready for extreme overclockers to really push the limits of performance. Over the next few days we expect to see lots of changes at the top of our Hall of Fame list of the world's best 3DMark scores, so check out what's new, download the update and then get benchmarking!
What's New in 3DMark v1.1.0 for Windows
This update adds the Ice Storm Extreme test and fixes issues when testing systems with multiple GPUs. 3DMark scores will increase slightly on systems with two GPUs and significantly on systems with three or four GPUs.
The Ice Storm Extreme benchmark test has been added to 3DMark Advanced Edition. Ice Storm Extreme is a Direct3D feature level 9 benchmark test for Windows tablets, ultrabooks and notebooks. Ice Storm Extreme raises the rendering resolution from 720p to 1080p and uses higher quality textures and post-processing effects in the graphics tests to create a more demanding load for the latest mobile devices. You can compare Ice Storm and Ice Storm Extreme scores from Windows and Android devices.
- 3DMark now works correctly on systems with up to four GPUs.
- Fixed the issue caused by Windows update KB2670838, which added partial DX11.1 support to Windows 7.
- Fixed a problem with the bloom post-processing when using very high rendering resolutions in custom settings.
