As was announced a last month, a new test has come to 3DMark for benchmarking integrated graphics on various mobile devices; Night Raid. With its target being mobile devices, including Always Connected PCs, the test has native ARM support. The company tries to calibrate its tests around a reference score of 5000, it explains, and it found a notebook capable of that score was able to play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at 70 FPS, Dota 2 at 70 FPS, and League of Legends at 80 FPs when using low to medium settings at 1080p. Night Raid has two graphics tests, a CPU test, and a demo. The graphics tests contain dynamic reflections, ambient occlusion, tessellation, complex particle systems, and post-processing effects while the CPU test has physics simulation, occlusion culling, and procedural generation.
Night Raid is available now for all 3DMark editions, with the Advanced and Professional editions also having a Night Raid Stress Test that runs the test in a loop for testing stability and cooling. If you do not have a copy of the Advanced Edition, it is on sale for $7.49 (75% off) until October 15.
