Here’s a short preview of the upcoming 3DMark12, based on Direct3D 11 (11.1 ?). 3DMark12 will be released after the release of Windows 8 and will be compatible with Windows 7 and Vista.
The 3DMark DirectX 11 tech demo brings this scene to life with intelligent tessellation and advanced volumetric lighting using real-time light scattering. The visible particles and clouds of smoke in the scene react to other objects using fluid dynamics simulation. Post processing, ambient occlusion and various lens effects complete the look.
