3Dmark 11 is meant to piush your machine to its edge and quantify the results into a comparable number.
3DMark 11 has a series of predefined presets that offer a convenient way of scaling the benchmark load to provide relevant results for all levels of hardware. These pre-selected combinations of settings represent successively more advanced levels of visual quality. When running 3DMark 11 with one of the presets selected, the benchmark produces a score for that preset. The 3DMark score is calculated differently for each preset which means that scores are not comparable across different presets.
The audio visual demo is designed to showcase the DirectX 11 graphics from the Deep Sea and High Temple tests accompanied by an evocative soundtrack. Image quality and other effect settings are scaled according to your hardware to ensure decent frame rates. In 3DMark 11 Basic Edition the demo resolution is fixed at 720p while in 3DMark 11 Advanced Edition users can choose from a wide range of custom resolutions.
The basic edition is free but there are some additional features for purchase in and Advanced Edition for $19.95 and a Pro Edition for $995.00 (not a typo)
Features available in the pro versions :
Offline result management: By default 3DMark 11 submits and stores your benchmark results online on the 3DMark website. If you have 3DMark 11 Advanced Edition you can also choose to save your result files to your hard drive or another local offline location.
Benchmark looping: This setting allows the benchmark to repeat indefinitely. Benchmark looping is an effective way to test the stability of a system after upgrading or overclocking a component. This type of benchmark run doesn’t produce a score.
Demo looping: This setting allows the audio visual demo to be set up to loop indefinitely for display or trade show purposes. Demo looping is only available in the 3DMark 11 Professional Edition.
Image quality tool: This tool renders pixel perfect images from any point during the tests or the audio visual demo. . (only available in the 3DMark 11 Professional Edition.)
Command line automation: This feature, which is only available in the 3DMark 11 Professional Edition, allows the benchmark to be configured and automated using scripts running from the command line.
3DMark 11 requires DirectX 11, a DirectX 11 compatible video card, and Windows Vista or Windows 7.
