Frame Capture and Analysis Tools Review
     Thu, Apr 11 2013 | 8:01A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A tremendous amount of data is created during the capture and analysis process including charts that plot out the 95th and 99th percentile frame rates as well as charts that show the observed FPS versus the FRAPS FPS. Below are some representations of the data presented showing that yes, even with the latest drivers AMD is struggling with some frame time issues that drive the FPS delivered down to a level below that reported by FRAPS. Looking at the Frame Time chart you can see that when run in a CrossfireX configuration the frame time data is all over the board whereas NVIDIA`s multi GPU solution delivers a consistent line across the chart. Slightly wider than the single GPU line but still much improved over the AMD configurations. Another look using the percentile chart illustrates this a little differently, showing that as the outliers are removed the FPS takes a downward swing. The results from one game do not tell the whole tale so looking at BF3 as well as Far Cry 3 provides a pair of results to illustrate the point with a little larger base of video cards."

News: Inside the second with Nvidias frame capture tools
     Fri, Apr 05 2013 | 4:01P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia has released a suite of tools that allows us to precisely monitor a graphics card`s output to the display, providing new insight on the stuttering that can interrupt smooth gameplay. We`ve used this FCAT suite along with our usual latency-focused metrics to see what monitoring the final stage in the graphics pipeline can tell us about GPU performance in single- and multi-card configs."

3DMark for Android @ HardwareHeaven.com Today Futuremark are releasing, for free, a version of 3DMark which runs on Android (3.0 and above). This is their next step in allowing us to compare the latest mobile devices to each other with iOS support to follow soon. We have had some time with the new Android edition of 3DMark and today we have a selection of benchmark results from various devices as well as some information on the software itself."

Unigine Valley 1.0 Benchmark Tool Walk Through
     Sat, Mar 30 2013 | 12:09P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you can see, the tests are very consistent within the same preset. The average distance from the average score is just 0.49% for the Basic preset, 0.66% for the Extreme, and 0.05% for the Extreme HD. It does not take careful statistical analysis to recognize that this is significant consistency, which is quite important for the use of this benchmark."

Unigine Heaven 4.0 Benchmark Tool Walk Through
     Sat, Mar 30 2013 | 9:16A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there is one critique I can make about the Heaven benchmark, it is the heavy use of tessellation. By heavy, I really mean excessive, because the difference between elements with the tessellation on and off can be staggering. The most extreme examples of this are the dragon statue and the stairs. Without tessellation, the stairs are actually simple ramps without any step-geometry. With tessellation enabled, they become actual stairs. The dragon on the other hand shifts from something that you could also see as being a pet, with its relatively smooth body, into a viciously spiked nightmare."

3DMark Review
     Sun, Feb 24 2013 | 6:51P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall this 3DMark is definitely proving to be a powerful tool with its many options, though they are only available to those who purchase a license. Even with the Basic edition though, you have access to the default tests, which is all that matters for comparing results and showing off your graphical prowess. It will be very interesting to see what happens once the mobile device versions are released though; these will usher in a consistent benchmarking tool for the most popular non-console gaming platforms currently available."

3DMark 2013 review: 52 graphic cards tested with the new benchmarks
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 4:10P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3DMark has always been a great tool for testing high-end graphics cards, but it has even more to offer now. For the first time 3DMark is not a Windows-only benchmark any longer. Now it's possible to also test Windows RT, Apple iOS and Google Android devices, which makes 3DMark the first true cross-platform tool for measuring and comparing 3D performance.

Testing the new 3DMark and an Interview with Futuremark President Oliver Baltuch
     Fri, Feb 08 2013 | 1:14P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Essentially, while games will very rarely press towards the edges of GPU technology in order to make sure they can run on a variety of systems, synthetic benchmarks can include multiple tests (like graphics tests 1 and 2 in Fire Strike) that can push towards very specific, and very different, edge cases and give you more information. And while some people may debate his assertion that benchmarks like 3DMark can help predict performance in real-world games in 24-36 months time, I am all about getting as much information as possible to our readers."

3DMark 2013 - Fire Strike trailer / DirectX 11
     Mon, Dec 03 2012 | 11:06A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

"For more than 14 years, our 3DMark series has lead the way in advanced real-time rendering. The new 3DMark continues that tradition with a new test called Fire Strike, which uses techniques that are extremely demanding on today's hardware, but which are likely to become commonplace in PC games in two to three years time.

Fire Strike is our new showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what you can find in other benchmarks and games today.

The 3DMark Fire Strike trailer shows a short segment taken from the Fire Strike demo using the Extreme preset and rendered natively at 2560x1440 resolution.

Some of the techniques used include tessellation, dynamic particle illumination and shadowing, smoke simulation using grid-based fluid dynamics, volume ray casting with shadows and a wide variety of post processing effects including depth of field, blooms, distortions and various lens effects."

Expect the NEW 3DMark 2013 to drop before the end of the year!

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
