    Futuremark's next big installment of the 3DMark franchise is set for a February 4th release, according to the developer. The Windows PC version of the suite, which includes the Fire Strike DirectX 11 and Cloud Gate DirectX 10 game tests, in addition to various feature-tests, will be released on the 4th. The company did not give out release dates for its Android, iOS, and Windows RT versions. In the run up to its release, Futuremark kept enthusiasts interested by timely release of teaser images and videos of its two game tests, starting with Fire Strike in early December, and Cloud Gate, a couple of weeks later. The new 3DMark faced several delays, given that the first reveal of Fire Strike dates back to June 2012. Yet Futuremark is hopeful the new 3DMark will reach out to many more users thanks to its relaxed system requirements.

    It works on smartphones. I don't think, for example, catzilla could run so well on a smartphone.

    Do I need to get a Nvidia Titan card to be able to play it and not be embarrassed?

    I think this test:



    will bog down most systems. Looks to be a lot of tesselation going on.

    The graphics and engines of those benchmarks will never go into a real games or apps, so the scores are just to compare different cards. I wont get affected if I have 60+ fps on BF3 but only 10fps on this benchmark...
