3DMark is considered by many the world’s most popular benchmark test, and after Futuremark has released the app in the Windows Store, it is now available for Windows 8 and Windows RT tablets. Obviously, the Windows 8.1 and Windows RT app is designed for touchscreen tablets, so you need to download the desktop version of 3DMark if you don’t have a touchscreen slate.

3DMark is used by millions of people, hundreds of hardware review sites and many of the world’s leading technology companies. It’s the industry standard benchmark for graphics performance measurement, a professional level diagnostic tool now available to everyone for free! Use 3DMark Ice Storm for device-to-device comparisons of mainstream mobile devices. Ice Storm is an DirectX 11 feature level 9 benchmark test that uses fixed off-screen rendering at 720p then scales the output to fit the native display resolution of your device.

Ice Storm includes two graphics tests designed to stress the GPU performance of your device and a physics test to stress its CPU performance. Use 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme for device-to-device comparisons of high performance mobile devices. Ice Storm Extreme raises the off-screen rendering resolution to 1080p and uses higher quality textures and post-processing effects in the graphics tests to create a more demanding load for the latest smartphones and tablets.
