3DMark includes many benchmarks. Each test is designed for a specific class of hardware. We've made it easy to find the right test for your system. When you open the 3DMark app, the Home screen will recommend the most suitable benchmark. You can find and run other tests on the Benchmarks screen.

The resolution shown in the table is the resolution used to render the Graphics tests. In most cases, the Physics test or CPU test will use a lower rendering resolution to ensure that GPU performance is not a limiting factor.

3DMark tests are rendered at a fixed resolution regardless of hardware. This is the rendering resolution. The rendered frames are then scaled to fit your system's Windows desktop resolution. This scaling has a negligible effect on the benchmark score.
