And it's not just for Windows. With 3DMark you can compare your scores with Android and iOS devices too," Futuremark stated on its offiical website.
Futuremark revealed its plans for Windows 8 back in 2011. "With Windows 8 gamers will be able to enjoy their games on a wide range of devices from lightweight tablets to heavy-duty desktop rigs. Faced with so much choice it will be hard to work out which devices offer the best value for money. Fortunately 3DMark for Windows 8 will be our most wide-reaching 3DMark ever, able to accurately measure and compare gaming performance across all devices and graphical feature sets available with Windows 8," Jukka Mäkinen, CEO of Futuremark, stated. This new version of 3DMark will measure and compare gaming performance on all Windows 8 devices and offer users a choice of bench-marking in Metro UI or classic Windows UI.
