Famous mainboard manufacturer, Taiwanese company MSI is powering Futuremark’s show system presenting the latest version of 3D Mark graphics performance benchmarking suite. The new version of the benchmark is still in development and its name is simply “3D Mark for Windows 8.”
Hardware experts from TweakTown have managed to get a video
of the test system.
The demonstration seems to be real 3D rendering rather than just a demonstration video, but no scores are made available, as it is running in a continuous loop.
This is proof that Futuremark will most likely be ready with a new generation of benchmarking software when Microsoft launches the Windows 8 operating system this summer.
The hardware used for the system is comprised of MSI
’s Big Bang-XPower II motherboard powered by an Intel Core i7-3960K processor that feeds the two MSI GTX 680 Lightning video cards installed in SLI mode.
