New 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra Preset Added To Benchmark Suite

Yesterday Futuremark made claim to releasing the world's first 4K benchmark with their new Fire Strike Ultra preset of the 3DMark benchmark. Fire Strike Ultra is preset number eight for the 3DMark benchmark, which features presets for pretty much any device now ranging from the very low-end mobile devices to the ultra high-end 4K rigs.

We have included the Fire Strike Ultra preset in our benchmark suite database and it is now possible to submit your benchmark results. For now no points are awarded to the benchmark, but this may change in the future as the benchmark becomes more accepted amongst the overclocking community.

Enjoy!

PS: right before I was going to push the publish button, I checked the benchmark overview page and found out NeCrOmAnCiN from Canada made the first submission. That's within minutes of adding the benchmark to the database and before the news announcement. Well, I guess congratulations with the record! :-)

This should be a pretty GPU destroying benchmark :)

nXXo says:

Good luck VGA lol!

zeropluszero says:

for the love of god please do no give another preset any points. there are already far too many.

Australia FatBoyNotSoSlim says:

4K preset to have points please? Gotta reward those that buy top end monitor with some awesome internet points.

Belgium Massman says:

As far as I know you don't actually need a 4K monitor to run the benchmark.

Indonesia Lucky_n00b says:

It's offscreen-rendered, so you don't need 4K monitor to run it. Very heavy benchmark though, need VGA with at least 3GB of VRAM or you going to see <2 FPS on GT2. Doing 10K+ will need 4x R9 290X or 4x GTX 980

Hope one day FM will release 3DMark01 with upgraded graphics.

Confirming this. Whatever resolution you use on Windows desktop is what you'll actually see.

Granted, as non-4K monitor has to do scaling to output resolution, there may be a very slight performance loss - something like 0.5% - vs. displaying at native 4K. Nothing remarkable, but potentially matters when squeezing out those last few points for a record.

4K monitor prices luckily coming down rapidly.

At least it's functional with a 2GB vga.

3.4 fps with an HD7870 stock .... and 4.0 fps o/ced :D

I agree. Points would be nice, especially as the second person to have submitted a score.

zeropluszero says:

How about noooooooooo

K404 says:

Does Ultra have the same subtests as Fire Strike and Fire Strike Extreme, but at another, monitor-"irrelevant," resolution? If so, I vote no to points.

United Kingdom ObscureParadox says:

see I'd like to see it have some points, only because I feel it will be more about the GPU power rather than the CPU power, which we really need more of in these 3D tests. I mean half of them are practically CPU benchmarks now :P

Belgium skulstation says:

if point whil be enabeld i vote for disabel them for extreme.

Italy Atlas Rush says:

I'll put my 4k screen at use with this :D points would be great, of course, but I don't think that would be necessary. We already have a lot of benchmarks with boints on GPU side. Also, it's something that is going to advantage high-end users only, not rookies or lower-ranking people, making it harder for them to rank up :\

Belgium Massman says:

How about Rookies with high-end graphics cards? :)
