If any of you have noticed 3DMark wants to update today, that is because Futuremark has added a new benchmark to its suite; the Time Spy Extreme benchmark. It is the first 4K Direct 12 benchmark test, and was developed with input from the company's Benchmark Development Program, which includes AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA.

Along with being a more intense test for the latest GPUs, its CPU test has been designed to push processors with 8 or more cores. Compared to the original Time Spy benchmark, Extreme is three times more demanding, and it can also take advantage of advanced instruction sets up to AVX2, when they are supported. The update also comes with the Time Spy Extreme Stress Test, for when you want to check your system's stability.

Time Spy Extreme is a free update for anyone who purchased 3DMark Advanced Edition or 3DMark Professional Edition after July 14, 2016. For those with licenses prior to that date, you would need to purchase the Time Spy upgrade and add it to 3DMark.
