The launch of 3DMark 11 has been delayed but fortunately Futuremark released a new trailer to keep you entertained. The new video clip is called "High Temple", it shows off advanced DirectX 11 tessellation and lighting effects and was clearly sponsored by Antec.
HELSINKI, FINLAND - October 20, 2010 - Futuremark®, the developer of the world's most popular benchmarking software, today released a new trailer for 3DMark® 11, the latest version of their industry standard benchmark for real-time 3D graphics. The "High Temple" tech demo trailer shows advanced tessellation and lighting effects rendered in real-time by 3DMark 11's native DirectX 11 engine. 3DMark 11 is due to be released later this year.
High Temple is a demonstration of the DirectX 11 powered 3DMark 11 engine. The high definition 1080p trailer features a mysterious ruined temple hidden deep inside a lush jungle. Volumetric lighting illuminates the scene with bright sunlight filtering through the dense jungle. Tessellation is used to add rich detail to the temple carvings and the jungle foliage. Post processing delivers depth of field and other lens effects. The music is an original composition by renowned composer Pedro Macedo Camacho. The trailer, a selection of new screenshots and further information about 3DMark 11 can be found on the official website: http://www.3dmark.com/
"The High Temple tech demo showcases the amazing real-time graphics that are possible today using readily available DirectX 11 hardware," said Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark CEO, "With 3DMark 11 releasing later this year and an ever increasing number of games using DirectX 11 there is a lot to look forward to for PC gamers."
The 3DMark 11 High Temple tech demo will be shown at the Antec booth at BlizzCon 2010 in Anaheim, California from October 22-23. The Antec logo placement within the High Temple tech demo is a special sponsorship arrangement between Antec and Futuremark. Advertising placements ensure that Futuremark can offer a free edition of the benchmark alongside the paid editions.
3DMark 11 will be released later this year. There will be a free edition allowing unlimited runs available at launch. 3DMark 11 will join existing Futuremark benchmarks 3DMark Vantage for DirectX 10 and 3DMark06 for DirectX 9.

not that impresive by Anonymous on Thursday, October 21 2010 @ 09:18:41 CEST
Dont know why but this is not that impressive and it just shows how much crysis was ahead of its time(in terms of visuals),nd god if u played warhead it really comes close of matchin this or even surpassing it, first the sky its totoally blue it must have sum variation nd the whole scene has some "plastic feel" to it which wasnt there in crysis nd even uncharted has some nice visuals, guess now we have to wait for next generation consoles(ps4 , xbox 720) to really see some mind blowing graphics in games.
