Futuremark, makers of the popular 3DMark and PCMark benchmarks (as well as others) is offering up a glimpse of its upcoming 3DMark 11 software by releasing a new trailer called "High Temple."
The High Temple tech demo shows advanced tessellation and lighting effects rendered in real-time by 3DMark 11's native DirectX 11 engine, Futuremark says. It's a 1080p trailer set deep inside a jungle and using volumetric lighting to illuminate the area.
"The High Temple tech demo showcases the amazing real-time graphics that are possible today using readily available DirectX 11 hardware," said Jukka Mäkinen, Futuremark CEO. "With 3DMark 11 releasing later this year and an ever increasing number of games using DirectX 11 there is a lot to look foward to for PC gamers."
Like previous 3DMark versions, Futuremark plans to release a free version allowing unlimited runs, while the full version will unlock advanced options.
