I find the stability tests in this tool invaluable when building or assembling new PCs for customers. If it passes the 20 minute stress tests it’s good to go and I can see temperatures and benchmarks relative to other systems to know my system is performing properly. I’ve also found it useful to relay to customers what kind of performance they should expect relative to other systems on the market with the easy to read benchmarks.
I find them much more real world than prime 95.How do the stability tests perform compared to prime95 ?
I find them much more real world than prime 95.
Saying it’s much more representative of real world use, temps, and stability than furmark or prime95.Not trying to turn this into a fight but how is 3Dmark real world uses a compute as purpose and not a tool?
Prime95 has a realworld purpose. like 7-zip handbrake they have a product besides jsut the testing. 3Dmark does not. its not based on any real world code
Maybe you could get this if you had someone else purchase it and gift it to you.Dam, can't buy it again just to get the locked tests on my copy of 3dMark. I really wanted the raytrace and dlss tests but it would cost more to buy the missing tests that are included with this deal. I was going to permanently remove it from my steam account to rebuy but apparently " In addition, should you repurchase this game in the future, you will not receive a different CD key." so I guess that means I'd be missing the tests if the key was the same. Oh well...
Advanced Edition bundle3DMark + PCMark 10 + VRMark
The complete benchmarking bundle.
I didn't even think about checking their website for the standalone version lol. Yeah that might be the better way to go. Thanks.
Thanks, snagged it from them directly. No bugs and no money to the steam monopoly!
try offline mode, might work.I bought this. One unexpected problem I'm having is that because this is tied to steam, I can't run the benchmark on more than one computer at the same time... It makes sense that I wouldn't be able to play the same game on two different computers simultaneously using the same steam account, but a benchmark is different. Using 3dmark NOT through steam, there had never been any limit to the number of systems that it could run on simultaneously. Obviously one of the main purposes of a benchmark is to compare different computers, so this is pretty annoying.
The keys for your Steam version will let you install the full standalone versions. When you install them they should pick up the keys in your registry automatically, but you can always look them up in Steam and enter them manually.is buying on Steam better then the standalone versions?...so Steam would need to be running in the background during the 3DMark tests?
