New 3D Mark Benchmark Test Sports Tessellation, Particles & Advanced Post-processing DX11 Effects

Futuremark today announced 3DMark Sky Diver, a new DirectX 11 benchmark test for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. 3DMark Sky Diver is described as the ideal test for benchmarking systems with mainstream DirectX 11 graphics cards, mobile GPUs, or integrated graphics.

According to the press release, the scene is brought to life with tessellation, particles and advanced post-processing effects. Sky Diver will be shown in full at Computex from June 3-7.

The following preview trailer for the new benchmark shows a wingsuited woman skydiving into a mysterious, uncharted location.

Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark CEO, said:

“Some people 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. 3DMark Sky Diver complements our other tests by providing the ideal benchmark for gaming laptops and mainstream PCs.”

Enjoy!
