3DMark is one of the most popular benchmarks designed for testing a PC to determine the performance of its components. This version includes a variety of tests (synthetic video system tests, CPU tests, etc.), including those designed for testing specific components (from smartphones to high-performance gaming computers).
Best testing with 3DMark
Correct test every time
It is not difficult to choose a suitable test for your PC. 3DMark automatically scans your hardware and recommends the best test for your system.
Choose your tests
3DMark is growing every year with new tests. You can choose to install only the necessary tests.
Detailed diagrams show how the CPU and GPU temperature, clock speed, and frame rate changed during the test run.
Explore the performance limits of your PC by changing the resolution and other quality settings to make the tests more or less demanding.
See how your result in 3DMark compares to the results of other systems with the same combination of CPU and GPU.
- There are tests of Ice Storm, Cloud Gate and Fire Strike.
- Availability of tests for the DirectX 11, DirectX 10, and DirectX 9 libraries.
- The ability to test tablet PCs and laptops up to the latest high-performance 4K gaming PCs.
- Compare test scores with other devices running on Windows, Android, and iOS platforms.
- Have a free online account to view the results.
