3DMark Cloud Gate: Upcoming DirectX 10 Benchmark Test
Futuremark will release a new benchmark called Cloud Gate for DirectX 10 compatible hardware for all
gamers that do not have DX11 capable machines:
Cloud Gate, one of three tests in the new 3DMark, uses a DirectX 11 engine limited to Direct3D feature level 10_0, making it suitable for testing DirectX 10 compatible hardware found in notebooks and typical home PCs. It is also an ideal benchmark for entry-level DirectX 11 integrated graphics solutions that could struggle to run the more demanding Fire Strike test. Cloud Gate will be available only in the Windows versions of 3DMark initially.
