Futuremark Outs New 3DMark “Sky Diver” DX11 Benchmark For Gaming Laptops And Midrange PCs

We use a number of Futuremark’s benchmarks when we test systems around here, and there’s a new one coming called 3DMark “Sky Diver”, a DX11 bench aimed at gaming laptops and midrange PCs.

3DMark Sky Diver

“Sky Diver is the ideal test for benchmarking systems with mainstream DirectX 11 graphics cards, mobile GPUs, or integrated graphics,” reads an announcement from Futuremark. “The scene is brought to life with tessellation, particles and advanced post-processing effects.”

You can see that Sky Diver entails a wingsuited person flying through a gorgeous, mountainous environment. Considering how much time we spend with benchmark runs, the prettier the bench, the better.

Futuremark will be showing Sky Diver at Computex from June 3rd-7th.
