Experience PC Envy with the 3DMark 11 Launch

If you PC gamers were unaware, 3DMark 11 dropped today with a few versions for you to try out on your fancy machines and see how it stacks up in today’s market. Strangely enough, the last time I attempted a PC benchmark was all the way back around 2002 or 2003, back when I was still into the whole PC gaming scene. As I’ve said on numerous occasions, the rig I’m working on right now was built in 2005, so I imagine my benchmark leaves quite a bit to be desired.

Here’s a video of the test from version 11 in all of its glory and fidelity:

For those of you that are super serious about the whole benchmarking thing, there are a couple of advanced versions of 3DMark 11 for you to grab, including one professional installment that will cost you $995 big ones. I don’t know anyone that hardcore about it, but there you go. For the rest of us normal dudes, the free version should suffice.

Did anyone else try this out? What was your score? Go!

  1. As if my computer could ever run that.

    Well this trailer made me… chortle. Still, the graphics looked like a model. Like ya know, small model sets. It’s probably just because of those overhead lights, but it’s noticeable.

  2. This looks pretty good, but I think Unreal Engine 4, CryEngine 3, and even id Tech 5 look much more realistic.

  3. Trogador, these aren’t meant to necessarily be the best graphics ever, they’re just meant to stress your GPU and see how it handles. There are several tests that it runs. This is more of a teaser.

    However, I downloaded the free version and it says you need DirectX 11 compatible hardware, and I don’t even have that with my GeForce 275. I don’t have a single PC friend who can run this yet, lol.
