Futuremark has released a new update that brings a few notable changes to the benchmarking software, including a an improvement in its Benching algorythms and adding a new Ice Storm Unlimited Mode to the benchmarking options.
The update consists mostly of an algorithm update and GPU-Z Library integration that will not only allow more accurate hardware detection but will also restore clock speed and temperatures during benchmarking. Futuremark is continuously building a name for itself as a highly reliable benchmarking software and is constantly updating its software to meed the current benchmarking requirements.
Another major update is the addition of the Ice Storm Unlimited mode, which is basically the scenario used in mobile testing ”ported” to PC. The Ice Storm mode was usually used in mobiles and tablets to benchmark the same ,now however 3d Mark incorporates the PC Variant of the Ice Storm Mode. It will allow users to compare their mobile devices with their PCs giving a very realistic representation of the difference between the two platforms.
More and more mobile manufacturers claim to incorporate chips that lead to performance similar to consoles or even PCs, but now we have a tool use to see if their claims are true or not.
