Futuremark Updates 3DMark (2013) with Ultra HD FireStrike Benchmark

In its latest update to 3DMark (2013), version 1.4.775, Futuremark rolled out what it claims to be the first comprehensive benchmark for systems with 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) displays. The suite's high-end graphics benchmark, FireStrike, now comes with a third variant, besides the standard (1920 x 1080), and Extreme (2560 x 1440) ones; called FireStrike Ultra. Unlocked on the Advanced and Professional licenses, FireStrike Ultra doesn't need you to have an Ultra HD display, just a GPU with at least 3 GB of video memory. The main benchmark selection window has been polished up a bit more, and the benchmark logging now includes more details that should help with customer-support.
