    New

    3DMark UI has been redesigned and rebuilt to be faster and more flexible.
    Home screen recommends the best test for your PC based on your system details.
    Run other benchmarks and feature tests from the Benchmarks screen.
    Russian localization.
    Improved

    Each benchmark test can now be updated independently.
    Ice Storm Extreme and Ice Storm Unlimited are unlocked in 3DMark Basic Edition.
    SystemInfo module updated to 4.43 for improved hardware detection.
    VRMark preview

    Explore two test scenes in a preview of VRMark, our new benchmark for VR systems. The preview does not produce a score.
    The VRMark preview is not available in 3DMark Basic Edition or the Steam demo.
    Fixed

    Workaround for the AMD driver issue where the preview videos in the UI caused some AMD graphics cards to use low power mode and run at lower clock speeds.

    Test 1 : fps 80-150 Test 2 : fps 60-90

    Updated Java - still freezes. I suspect it's still a Java error on my hardware, got bluescreen withClock_Watchdog_Timeout.

    great now I can I uninstall my steam version as I was using both direct install and steam for the new "beta" features. Incidentally from testing both the steam beta version and the direct install version I would get the same scores with in margin of error since last December.

    ^ I think not, it's a part of the Advanced (or better) Edition as before.

    How do I find my Steam key to use it this new version instead? Release notes says it can be done, but I don't see the key in Steam. Its not listed in my Steam receipt either.

    yea was a bit frustrated myself because of that. Got 3DMark Adv. from Steam sale a while back.

    The API test is a "Feature" test, not a "Benchmark". The "Feature" tests are not included in the Basic edition.

    Upgrading from the beta version screwed me it seems. I can't submit a single score online, i've some random error detected after every benchmark run.
