The famous 3DMark benchmark solution is now available for Windows 8 users too, giving them the power to test the capabilities of their devices without leaving the Modern UI.
The application comes with built-in features to compare your results with other statistics collected from Windows RT, Windows, iOS, and Android devices.
There are several tools diagnostic tools available in the app, each with a different purpose. For example, 3DMark Ice Storm can help you perform device-to-device comparisons of mainstream mobile devices, stressing GPU performance and initiating a physics test to determine CPU performance.
3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited comes in handy for chip-to-chip comparisons “of the hardware inside your device without vertical sync, display resolution scaling and other operating system factors affecting the result,” as the official app description reads.
Last but not least, 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme relies on higher quality textures and post-processing effects in the graphics test to determine the capabilities of smartphones and tablets.
