New DX11-benchmark 3DMark Sky Diver ready for testing laptops and medium gaming PCs

| June 12, 2014

The company Futuremark announced the launch of a new test in the Sky Diver Sky Diver for PC, on which we have already written on the eve of the Computex 2014. All users 3DMark (at the moment – more than a million people) will be able to get Sky Diver as a free upgrade. In this limited time price 3DMark Advanced Edition on Steam has been reduced by 60%.

Sky Diver test is designed for laptops and PCs medium with support for DirectX 11. The new stage uses tessellation, particle physics and advanced post-processing effects. According to the developers, it is perfectly suited for systems which can not provide more than 10 frames / s in more demanding test Fire Strike. In general, such an algorithm Futuremark offers the use of tests (scores between both DX11-tests can not be compared):

  • if the system is gaining less than 2,800 points in Fire Strike, better test it in Sky Diver;
  • if the PC provides more than 12,000 points in the Sky Diver, better run Fire Strike.

Sky Diver demonstration includes two graphics tests (primarily investigated the load on GPU), physics test (estimated possible CPU) and the combined test (loaded and the CPU, and GPU).

NVIDIA video card owners, developers strongly recommend that you install the latest drivers:

  • Desktop PC – GeForce 335.23 WHQL for Win7/8.1 x32 and x64 Win 7/8.1 ;
  • Laptops – GeForce 335.23 WHQL for Win7/8.1 x32 and x64 Win 7/8.1 .

In some scenes 3DMark Sky Diver logo can be seen ASUS. This is no accident: the Taiwanese company is the official sponsor. Futuremark notes that sponsors support allows you to 3DMark Basic Edition free for users.
