Futuremark has announced an update to their 3DMark 11 benchmark that makes the software completely compatible with the Windows 8 operating system. Futuremark says that scores from the new version are completely compatible and comparable to those that were generated by version 1.0.3.

The update comes with the following improvements:

 

  • Keyboard focus is no longer checked during the demo or when running the benchmark in a loop. Note that if the display switches to the desktop due to a popup window during the benchmark, the run will still be aborted as the display mode is no longer the same.
  • 3DMark 11 now remembers the last custom resolution used.
  • GPU count detection for multi-GPU systems is now correct even when SystemInfo is explicitly disabled.
  • 3DMark 11 will now prevent Windows from entering Sleep during the test.
  • The license key is now reset when the benchmark is reinstalled, allowing removal of invalid keys.

 

The Futuremark team has also fixed several bugs that were present in the previous version. The new version of 3DMark 11 can be downloaded from Futuremark or will be automatically updated when Steam is next started.
