Today's big 3DMark update adds a new DirectX 12 benchmark test for 4K gaming PCs.
Time Spy Extreme is a benchmark for gamers who want to play at the highest settings, system builders configuring 4K-capable machines, and overclockers pushing the latest hardware for every bit of extra performance.
3DMark Time Spy Extreme - 4K DirectX 12 benchmark
Time Spy Extreme is the world's first 4K DirectX 12 benchmark test, developed with input from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, and the other members of our Benchmark Development Program.
With its 4K Ultra HD rendering resolution and a redesigned CPU test, Time Spy Extreme is the ideal benchmark test for the latest high-end graphics cards and new processors with 8 or more cores. You don't need a 4K monitor to run it, but you will need a GPU with at least 4 GB of dedicated memory.
Ideal for new multi-core processors
The CPU test has been redesigned to let processors with 8 or more cores perform to their full potential. Compared with Time Spy, the Extreme CPU test is three times more demanding. It also lets processors use more advanced instructions sets up to AVX2 when supported.
Time Spy Extreme Stress Test
This update also adds a new Time Spy Extreme Stress Test. Stress testing is a good way to check the stability of your system after buying or building a new PC, upgrading your graphics card, or overclocking your GPU. It can help you identify hardware problems or a need for better cooling.

Time Spy Extreme is available now as a free update for people who bought 3DMark from Steam after July 14, 2016, and for those with older copies who already own the Time Spy upgrade.http://store.steampowered.com/app/223850/3DMark/
