New 3DMark DirectX 11 Benchmark Revealed

Fururemark has released a video showing off a new tech demo that looks reminiscent of the UE4 engine tech demonstration. This new benchmark is actually compatible with DX9, DX10, and DX11 hardware. So, the effects will scale with the type of hardware being used. In addition, the new benchmark supports Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

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.
