Poll: What 3DMark Preset Should Get Global Points? UPDATE 11/06: Global Points Enabled For 3DMark Fire Strike

Following Futuremark's announcement of the new 3DMark Sky Diver benchmark, we are hosting a poll to check the community's interest for enabling global (and world record) points for another 3DMark preset. Currently only Fire Strike Extreme is available for HWBoints. Anyone with a minimum of 5 submissions and registered since yesterday can vote for any number of the benchmark presets.

You can find the poll in the sidebar on the right (not the image!).

Update: based on the results from the poll, we have the following results.

User Pct. Poll Option
58.29%Fire Strike
36.90%Cloud Gate
29.95%Sky Diver
24.06%Ice Storm Extreme
22.46%Ice Storm
16.04%None of the above
15.51%Ice Storm Unlimited


We will enable WR, GL and HW points for 3DMark Fire Strike. For the other benchmarks we will start a new poll to decide if hardware points should be added or not. The poll will be available in the sidebar shortly!

i can't find the poll but id say no firestrike, its too similar to 11/vantage, gpu bound in single, but a cpu benchmark in multicard

i think we have to rule out ice storm unlimited because its a bit silly to run on a PC

id say cloud gate might be the best, but i am not so sure we need another 3dmark preset at this stage, might be best to see how skydiver develops and maybe reconsider again later

^^ We allready have to much Benchmarks! If enable new benches, we have to close some other, like not having 2 Cinebench
Im missing the Option, yes, but disable other benches...
How to bench all Benchmarks now with 1 card, impossible... We allready need 2 Sessions t get them all on 1 card

+1 for there being too many benchmarks.

Here's another unpopular opinion:
01, 05, 06 and AM3 have basically been CPU benchmarks in the last couple of years. Why not pull globals for some of those?

We can have another poll about removing global points later I suppose.

Well I like benchmarking so add'em all as far as I'm concerned, not that my card can handle all that much nonetheless still fun.

Let's wait a bit and see how it goes with sky diver.

Either way , i would prefer one of those two.

Sky Diver, for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs (DirectX 11, feature level 11)
Cloud Gate, for notebooks and typical home PCs (DirectX 11 feature level 10)
