The benchmark details screen helps you understand how the test works. It describes the key features of each workload, the target hardware and other details such as the rendering resolution.

Click on the large, orange Run button to start the benchmark

Settings

Include demo

Use this setting to chose whether the demo is included in the benchmark run. 3DMark demos do not affect your benchmark score.

Rendering device

If your system has multiple GPUs, you can use this drop-down to choose which GPU is used for the benchmark run.

Display

If your system has multiple displays, you can use this drop-down to choose which display is used for the benchmark run.


If the selected rendering device is not connected directly to the selected display then the frame rate may be limited by PCI Express bandwidth and other factors.

Buttons

  • Click the 3DMark user guide button to open this online guide.
  • Click the Hall of fame button to go to the benchmark's Hall of Fame page on 3dmark.com.
  • Click Uninstall to uninstall the benchmark. You won't lose any benchmark results. 

Custom run

Some benchmarks have settings that you change to create a custom benchmark run. Click on the Custom run tab to open the custom run view. Custom settings help you explore your PC's performance limits by making the benchmark more or less demanding. 

Adjust the settings to your preferences then click the orange Run custom button to start the benchmark. Click on the Reset button to return all settings to the default values for the test.

Custom settings are only available in the Advanced and Professional Editions. When you run a benchmark with custom settings, you will get results from each subtest as well as hardware performance monitoring information, but no overall score. You only get an official 3DMark benchmark score when you run a test with the default settings.
