Reading time is around minutes.

Futuremark recently released a new version of 3DMark 11 for testing the performance of graphics cards. 3DMark 11 version 1.0.4 is now fully compatible with Windows 8, The good news is that the scoring system has not been changed so that the results obtained are comparable with the previous test made in the version 1.0.3.

Among the major changes in this version Futuremark points out the termination of checking out keyboard focus while playing the demo and repetitive benchmark, memory of previous user-defined screen resolutions, proper detection of multiple graphics processors in the same system (multi-GPU configurations) even with the exclusion of SystemInfo. It will also prevent Windows from going into Sleep mode when you run the tests.

The upgrade also brings generally better compatibility with various configurations and corrections for several identified bugs, such as those with a HUD-increment or "leakage" of memory and textures, which effected stability during consecutive long-term tests in the loop. The new version of 3DMark 11 can be downloaded from here.
