If there’s a way to get to the inner soul of a gamer or a geek, nerd, or what have you, it’s possible to just run a 3DMark test on their computer to make them feel weak, flimsy, and desolate, too. Basically, 3DMark 2013 is the benchmarking software that takes an accurate jab at the capability of your PC to process and render items, like you would in a game. It’s a very strenuous application in this regard. The three specific new tests include Fire Strike, for brag-worthy rigs with high-end DirectX 11 graphics; Cloud Gate test for the mortal DX 10/11 PCs, and Ice Storm for older DX 9 hardware. You can find it as a download on Steam.
Futuremark, the company behind 3DMark is also making iOS, Android, and Windwos RT versions, so that punishing your technology in every way possible, is possible.
