For tablets, notebooks and high-end desktop PCs


Futuremark has announced 3DMark for Windows 8. The new benchmark tool is expected to be released next year and will measure performance of all Windows 8 devices including tablets, notebooks and high-end desktop gaming systems.

The new 3DMark for Windows 8, as Futuremark is currently calling it, will support both x86 and ARM-based devices and will feature stunning real-time scenes that will stress test all levels of hardware. It will measure and compare gaming performance on all Windows 8 devices and it will be usable in both Metro UI and standard Windows environments.

Jukka Mäkinen, CEO of Futuremark, noted that due to wide range of devices for Windows 8 it will be hard to work out which devices offer the best value for money, or bang for buck as we like to call it, but fortunately, 3DMark for Windows 8 will able to accurately measure and compare gaming performance across all devices and graphical feature sets available with Windows 8.

The 3DMark for Windows is developed in co-operation with the world's leading technology companies and, as noted, it is currently in developement and excpected to be released in 2012.
