Latest 3DMark DirectX 11 Teaser Video is Hot!
"Our 3DMark DirectX 11 tech demo brings this scene to life with intelligent tessellation and advanced volumetric lighting using real-time light scattering," Futuremark explains. "The visible particles and clouds of smoke in the scene react to other objects using fluid dynamics simulation. Post processing, ambient occlusion and various lens effects complete the look. The music and audio design is by Pedro Macedo Camacho, who also created the soundtrack for 3DMark 11."
It's a one-minute video that's worth your time if you're into the benchmarking scene, or appreciate graphical effects in general. As for when the next 3DMark build will come out, Futuremark says it's scheduled to debut later in 2012 following the launch of Windows 8. Don't fret if you don't plan to upgrade your OS, it will also be compatible with Windows 7 and Vista.
