New Look for 3DMark Results, Test System Setup
Results from 3DMark are still provided in a mixture of score and average frame rate. For Fire Strike, the one that will be more important for our audience right away, scores are given for the overall score, graphics score and physics. Average frame rates are given for the two graphics tests, the physics and the combined test.
What's new this time though is the interactive graph (available only on the non-free versions though) that will give you the frame rate over time as well as data points like GPU temperature, CPU temperature, CPU clock, etc.
It is broken up by each test but the user can decide which tests and which data points to display.
You can zoom in on specific sections but I would like to see the capability to save the graphs as you combine them and export to a separate file.

Our standard GPU test bed is listed below; the only thing really worth noting is that we used the very latest beta drives from both vendors, at their specific request.
Yeah, I know.
Yeah, I know.
This sounds very interesting
This sounds very interesting for a hardware bench mark that targets all platforms, I will be using fire strike for my desktop PC gentleman.
Hi Ryan!…there are rumors
Hi Ryan!…there are rumors that you have received a special package from Nvidia …. fits well with this benchmark? 😛
No clue what you are talking
No clue what you are talking about! 🙂
if a HD 7970(925 mhz) is
if a HD 7970(925 mhz) is faster than GTX 680 then the HD 7970 Ghz is pretty much the boss in this test. I have always felt that Nvidia got away this generation with the majority of sales and accolades as AMD did not get their launch and early drivers (first 6 months till June 2012) performance as good as it could have been. From 12.11 beta onwards AMD is showing how capable their hardware is.

I’d like to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this site.
I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade blog posts by you
in the future as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my very own website now

Nice show! I enjoy these types of learning discussions.
Hey Ryan, correct me if I’m
Hey Ryan, correct me if I’m wrong, but It doesn’t seem that 3Dmark graph shows frametime fluctuations consistent with inside-the-second analysis as Oliver suggested when you asked about it. It’s more like the graph shows average fps in a coresponding time window which is one second or even larger.
You are correct. It doesn’t
You are correct. It doesn’t go into the detail we’ll want for our future testing but we can use our other tools for that a bit later.
Ryan, do you see your
Ryan, do you see your framerating benchmark as having relevance to this new 3dMark software? It would be interesting to merge the two.
