Posted on Monday, November 14 2011 @ 19:14:45 CET by


Futuremark announced it's working on a new benchmark for Windows 8. The current working title is 3Dmark for Windows 8 and it promises to be the most wide-ranging 3DMark ever, allowing you to compare the gaming performance of tablets, laptops and desktops, whether they have an ARM processor or a x86 chip.

"With Windows 8 gamers will be able to enjoy their games on a wide range of devices from lightweight tablets to heavy-duty desktop rigs. Faced with so much choice it will be hard to work out which devices offer the best value for money.
