My System Specs

Default Update for 3DMark released [HWBOT]

A tad late for our Ice Storm contest, but for those still running the old version:

What's New in 3DMark Windows Edition v1.1.0

This update adds the Ice Storm Extreme test and fixes issues when testing systems with multiple GPUs. 3DMark scores will increase slightly on systems with two GPUs and significantly on systems with three or four GPUs.

The Ice Storm Extreme benchmark test has been added to 3DMark Advanced Edition. Ice Storm Extreme is a Direct3D feature level 9 benchmark test for Windows tablets, ultrabooks and notebooks. Ice Storm Extreme raises the rendering resolution from 720p to 1080p and uses higher quality textures and post-processing effects in the graphics tests to create a more demanding load for the latest mobile devices. You can compare Ice Storm and Ice Storm Extreme scores from Windows and Android devices.

- 3DMark now works correctly on systems with up to four GPUs.
- Fixed the issue caused by Windows update KB2670838, which added partial DX11.1 support to Windows 7.
- Fixed a problem with the bloom post-processing effect when using very high rendering resolutions in custom settings.

Our mirrors should start deploying the new installer over the next hour or so. Steam version is already available. There is no differential installer - main DAT file was modified so the patch installer would be almost as large as the full installer anyway.

HWC Overclocking Team, breaking hardware for fun!
