Futuremark has now released 3DMARK version v2.3.3682, fixing a critical bug with the DirectX 12 API test, which caused the application to crash on some systems. 
 
With Futuremarks’ last update, version v2.3.3663, the company added support for the Vulkan API with a new Vulkan API overhead test that supports Windows 10, 8.1 and 7. This update removed the application’s older Mantle API overhead test, an unsurprising move since AMD no longer supports the API.

With this update, PC users will now be able to test and compare API overhead using DirectX 12, DirectX 11 and Vulkan, with this update preventing crashes that affected some users.  

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