Futuremark release 3DMARK version v2.3.3663 with Vulkan support

 
Futuremark has now released 3DMARK version v2.3.3663, adding Vulkan API support and a new Vulkan API overhead test that supports Windows 10, 8.1 and 7. 
 
This new version also adds several improvements the 3DMARK benchmarking utility, fixing several bugs and improving compatibility with X99. 
 
 
3DMARK v2.3.3663 Release Notes
 

New

Added Vulkan support to the API Overhead feature test. Use the API Overhead feature test to compare Vulkan, DirectX 12, and DirectX 11 API performance on your PC. The Vulkan test requires compatible video drivers with Vulkan support. Check with your GPU vendor for Vulkan driver support if your hardware is unable to run the test. Note that the Vulkan test replaces the Mantle test found in previous versions of 3DMark. 

Improved

SystemInfo scan time greatly improved on X99 systems.

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue that could cause the API Overhead feature test to fail to show a score at the end of an otherwise normal run on some systems.
  • Fixed Time Spy test to properly recover from a corrupted shader cache – if runtime compiled shaders are found to be corrupted, they are deleted and recompiled. Uninstallation also now completely removes the shader cache folder.
  • Fixed a scaling issue that could cause parts of the UI to end up outside the display area on 1080p monitors with 150% DPI scaling. UI will now scale appropriately even on high DPI scaling settings.

 

Futuremark release 3DMARK version v2.3.3663 with Vulkan support

  

With this update, PC users will now be able to test and compare API overhead using DirectX 12, DirectX 11 and Vulkan, with Vulkan replacing the test for AMD’s Mantle API. 

At this time Futuremark has not released a GPU performance benchmark that uses the Vulkan API, though one is currently in the works.
