Futuremark working on Windows 8 version of 3DMark

Futuremark reveled today that the company is already hard at work on a new version of the popular 3DMark performance measurement software for Microsoft’s upcoming operating system, Windows 8. This new version will also support both x86 and ARM based architectures.

“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.

There is not much else known about the new version of 3DMark for Windows 8, but the company plans on releasing the software sometime next year.
