New 3DMark Trailer Shows Future of DirectX 11 Games

Futuremark today released its first trailer for the next version of 3DMark. Designed for measuring the gaming performance of everything from tablets and notebooks to high-end desktop gaming systems, the next 3DMark for Windows will be the world’s first unified graphics benchmark allowing testing of DirectX 9, DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 capable hardware through the DirectX 11 API. Expected to be released after the launch of Windows 8, this new 3DMark will also be compatible with Windows 7 and Windows Vista. The new trailer provides a preview of the DirectX 11 test and is now available online and in high definition for the first time at 3DMark.com. 3DMark DirectX 11 Tech Demo In the trade town of Scarport, buildings cling to canyon walls above canals of lava and provide shelter from the toxic volcanic atmosphere. Gaudy neon signs flicker as steam rises from the molten rivers running beneath the town. A trader walks along ledges carved from the volcanic rock, smoke swirling around her flowing cloak. Her robotic sentinels keep watch, but what dangers lie hidden in the shadows? The 3DMark DirectX 11 tech demo brings this scene to life with intelligent tessellation and advanced volumetric lighting using real-time light scattering. 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.

That’s just part of the reason why Crucial introduced its latest low profile dual-channel DDR3 memory kits, like the Ballistix Tactical LP and the Sport VLP series. The Ballistix Tactical LP targets the gamers, enthusiasts and power users. The Ballistix Sport VLP lineup is targeted for the mainstream. Both Tactical LP and Sport VLP are available in 4GB and 8GB density modules with the frequency of 1600MHz. For timing, CAS 8 is for the Tactical and CAS 9 for the Sport series, and both only need 1.35v to operate.
