    3DMark revamped with added game performance estimator

    In addition to a benchmark score it will estimate fps in a range of popular games.

    Forever MadOnion in my heart

    Being out of the gaming/performance scene for a long time I'm unclear on something, is 3DMark as 'big' as it used to be? Are they updating to remain relevant or against some other competitor?

    I mean they've added RTX/DLSS specific benchmarks and stuff so yeah they're keeping up. People still use it to quantify overclocks and stuff.

    It's best put to use as above, qualifying changes you're making to your own system - some of the premium features are testing specifics like VRS, PCI-E bandwitdh etc. which again might be of use when finding out what your own bottlenecks are.

    This update is pretty much the first time they're trying to correlate 3D mark to real world relevance, and it's only for a few games, but it's a step in the right direction.

    Re: 3DMark revamped with added game performance estimator

    Userbenchmark seems a better way to compare with the outside world, but it's never going to be completely accurate and there are too many competitive LN2 fuelled runs in the top end of these things for it to really mean anything anyway. Just stick to using it to compare your own systems and to try out new features I say.
