We have a special update for you to end the year. Starting today, the 3DMark Holiday Beta is your chance to try some of the new features coming to 3DMark in 2016.
Explore classic 3DMark scenes in VR
Join the Holiday Beta and experience an interactive preview of VRMark
, our upcoming virtual reality benchmark.[www.futuremark.com]
In this exclusive preview, you can move freely within one of VRMark's test environments. Get up close to four classic 3DMark scenes in VR with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. But don't worry if you don't have a headset. The VRMark Preview works with your monitor too. The VRMark preview is for entertainment only. It does not produce a score.
Try 3DMark's new interface for 2016
3DMark grows bigger every year with new tests. Since launch, we've added Fire Strike Ultra, Sky Diver, and the API Overhead feature test. With more tests coming soon, we've created a new UI for 2016 that's faster, more flexible and more intuitive. The new Home
screen shows the recommended benchmark for your system. No more guessing which benchmark is right for your PC. You can install and run other tests from the Benchmarks
More flexibility, faster downloads, smaller updates
We've also rebuilt the internals of the 3DMark app. You can now download, install and update benchmarks independently. This makes the initial download much smaller. And it means you can choose to install only the tests you need. Say goodbye to massive downloads with every update.
How to join the 3DMark Holiday Beta
The beta is open to everyone who owns the paid version of 3DMark on Steam. Sorry, demo users. To join the beta, follow the steps in our community post
The benchmarks have not changed. You can use the Holiday Beta to test your PC and compare scores as usual. You can leave the beta and revert to the public version of 3DMark at any time.
