BENCHMARKING OUTFIT Futuremark has released a trailer for 3DMark 11, the latest version of its industry standard benchmark for real-time 3D graphics.
The "High Temple" trailer is a demonstration of the DirectX 11 powered 3DMark 11 engine. It shows advanced tessellation and lighting effects rendered in real-time by 3DMark 11's native DirectX 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.
It comes with music composed by Pedro Macedo Camacho. The trailer, a selection of new screenshots and further information about 3DMark 11 can be found here
Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark's CEO said that the High Temple technology demo showcases the real-time graphics that are possible today using readily available DirectX 11 hardware.
"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," he said.
Futuremark will release 3DMark 11 later this year. The company also makes 3DMark Vantage for DirectX 10 and 3DMark06 for DirectX 9. µ
