Futuremark Fixes Hardware Monitoring in Latest 3DMark Windows Update
On the buggy side, the 3DMark update fixes and improves hardware detection and monitoring. Running 3DMark Advanced or Professional Edition with compatible hardware will continue to generate an interactive graph of CPU and GPU clockspeeds and temperatures recorded during the test, only it will now be more accurate.
As far as new and improved features, Futuremark added the Ice Storm Unlimited test for comparing Windows 8 tablets with the latest Android and iOS devices. Bear in mind that this is a cross-platform benchmark, meaning you benchmark and compare scores of two totally different devices.
3DMark Basic Edition is a free download available from Futuremark and Steam. There's also 3DMark Advanced Edition for $24.95 that adds a bit more options, and 3DMark Professional Edition for $995 that's licensed for business use.
