3DMark 11 announced

Futuremark logoКWant another reason to upgrade? Then have no fear because Futuremark is here to announce its newest PC-kneeling software, 3DMark 11. The next chapter in the famed 3DMark series is build on a DirectX 11 engine and will require a DX11 card and a system powered by either Windows 7 or Vista.

Set for a Q3 release, 3D Mark 11 will take full advantage of DirectX 11 features like tessellation and compute shaders, will be multi-threaded so as to stress out today's top CPUs, and is supposed to be "the best way to consistently and reliably test DirectX 11 under game-like loads." To show off some of the capabilities of the benchmark's engine, Futuremark has provided a video of the Deep Sea tech demo which will be shown in full on the MSI booth at Computex (June 1-5).

"For over 10 years 3DMark has shown gamers what to expect from the next generation of real-time 3D graphics," said Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark CEO, "So we are especially excited to announce 3DMark 11 and show the possibilities of DirectX 11 with the release of the Deep Sea trailer."
