Futuremark 3DMark v1.4.775 Features FireStrike Ultra for 4K Ultra HD Benchmarking

Futuremark, makers of the popular 3DMark benchmarking tool, has recently released a new version of the 3DMark (2013), version 1.4.775. The new version now includes what the company calls “FireStrike Ultra” for 4K Ultra HD benchmarking. With this benchmarking tool, it’s able to tell users whether their current system is ready for 4K display and they can safely buy a new 4K monitor without any issues when it comes to gaming. Check out more details below and where you can download one.

3DMark FireStrike Ultra for 4K Ultra HD Benchmarking

Many people are very interested in getting a new 4K monitor and join the Ultra HD gaming bandwagon. But one problem that keeps users from investing into a 4K monitor is that they are not sure whether their system can handle gaming in Ultra HD settings.

Well here is the solution. Simply run 3DMark v1.4.775 Fire Strike Ultra and you will get your answer. Fire Strike Ultra renders the test content at 3840 x 2160 (4K Ultra HD) before scaling the output to your PC’s display resolution. This means you don’t need a 4K monitor to run Fire Strike Ultra, though you will need a GPU with at least 3 GB of dedicated memory.

What’s New in 3DMark v1.4.775

New:
Added FireStrike Ultra, a new 4K Ultra HD benchmark test. You don’t need a 4K monitor to run FireStrike Ultra, though you will need a GPU with at least 3 GB of dedicated memory.

Improved:
New design for main benchmark selection screen.
Improved benchmark logging to assist customer support.

Fixed:
3DMark is now more robust when there is a problem identifying or monitoring the hardware in the system.

Professional Edition only:
You can now set command line options within .3dmdef files.
Minor syntax changes to the .3dmdef definition files. You may need to update your existing scripts if using automation. See Command Line Guide for details.
Added command line logging options.
Command line progress logging now includes workload names and loop numbers.
Removed empty log lines from command line output.

Again, a 4K monitor is not required, but your graphics card must have at least 3GB of memory to run this monstrously demanding benchmark.
