3DMark 11 Images and Video Inside! There will be FREE version!

Point one: they learned from the Vantage launch by having a free version ready - good. Point two: the water looks better than Vantage - good!

Futuremark®, the developer of the world’s most popular benchmarking software, today announced 3DMark® 11, the latest version of their industry standard benchmark for real-time 3D graphics. Designed to measure the performance of DirectX 11 gaming PCs, 3DMark 11 uses a native DirectX 11 engine created in-house. To accompany the announcement Futuremark has released a trailer and screenshots taken from a 3DMark 11 tech demo called "Deep Sea".Deep Sea is a demonstration of DirectX 11 technologies created using an early development build of the 3DMark 11 engine. The Deep Sea trailer features submersibles exploring the sea floor. Volumetric lighting illuminates the seabed with tessellation used to add rich detail to the rock, coral and manmade structures. Post processing delivers depth of field and other lens effects. The music is an original composition. "For over 10 years 3DMark has shown gamers what to expect from the next generation of real-time 3D graphics," said Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark CEO, "So we are especially excited to announce 3DMark 11 and show the possibilities of DirectX 11 with the release of the Deep Sea trailer." The 3DMark 11 Deep Sea tech demo will be shown publicly for the first time on the MSI booth at Computex in Taipei, from June 1 - 5. 3DMark 11 will be released in the third quarter of 2010. There will be a free edition available at launch.

Still hoping Unigine wants to do the changes necessary for the benchmark to be hosted here on HWBOT instead of 3DMark11 :)

Belgium richba5tard says:

Did you contact Unigene again Massman? Maybe now that we have manufacturer support they might change their mind. :)

Belgium Massman says:

I think the main issue was securing the benchmark, not the submitting to HWBOT. Maybe there's another way to get the benchmark secured ...

United States Voidn says:

If you do add 3d11 can it be scored by GPU score, instead of total? Better have a free version, theres advertising built in...

Belgium jmke says:

advertising only pays for fraction of total dev cost...
