People that asked me to make an unique benchmark gathering FurMark, FluidMark and TessMark will be happy!

There are actually four benchmark modes: Extreme or Normal and with GPU PhysX or CPU PhysX.

To make things a bit more interesting, a tweaking bar has been added allowing a control of the features:

You can then hide or show the different objects of the scene: tessellated spheres and ground, PhysX flags, PhysX particles, post processing (depth of field), the cube-based asteroid field or the furry MSI:

The original burn-in module based on FurMark engine is still there and has been updated with a increased graphic workload. You can now change the fur color and the background image thanks to the new Settings box.
