Page 7 - Benchmark: 3DMark
The new 3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your hardware. With three all new tests you can bench everything from smartphones and tablets, to notebooks and home PCs, to the latest high-end, multi-GPU gaming desktops. And it's not just for Windows. With 3DMark you can compare your scores with Android and iOS devices too. It's the most powerful and flexible 3DMark we've ever created.

Like Futuremark's PCMark 8 benchmarking suite, 3DMark is yet another favorite among enthusiasts and reviewers alike. In fact, it has been part of the APH Networks' battery of standard benchmarks since the very beginning. The latest iteration of 3DMark is available in four presets. This includes Fire Strike, Sky Diver, Cloud Gate, and Ice Storm; each in decreasing order of GPU dependency. To give our test platform a little more CPU and RAM subsystem dependency, I did not enable the Extreme option in any of the tests. As you can see in our graphs above, the DDR3-2400 Kingston HyperX Savage HX324C11SRK2/16 2x8GB did not provide a whole lot of performance gain, if at all. Due to varying combinations of bandwidth and latencies, most of the tests ended up being statistical ties; the HyperX Savage won by a hair in some tests, and lost by a hair in others.
