Futuremark has finally announced the exact release date for its 3DMark 11 graphics card benchmark suite, November 30th.

As it was detailed a while ago, the new 3DMark 11 will be a DirectX 11 only benchmark and will be available in three versions, Basic, Advanced and Professional. The Basic version will be able to run only one of the four presets but it will be free. The Advanced version will be available for US $19.95 while the Professional Edition for companies and organizations will retail at US $995.00.

The Basic version will ofer only performance preset with audio visoual demo that is fixed at 720p. The official announcement is also the start of pre-order period, and if you are interested you can check it out here.

The November 30th is just around the corner and we'll finally have a chance to check out how well does the DirectX 11 hardware cope with the new Futuremark 3DMark 11 benchmark.

it looks beautiful and lush, but then you see a giant Antec logo on the side of a car and at that moment you're reminded that it's not real :-|

Also that it's probably not relevant either. Sure it's nice, but it's going to be optimized to the hilt for whatever company "paid" more.

God I hope they have gone for 1080P for the extreme preset this time.

I'm not sure how they would go about optimizing benchmark programs for computer cases, but yeah I get the point of advertising computer hardware and peripherals in futuremark software, I remember seeing the Sapphire logo in 3Dmarkvantage on the back of that boat/plane thingy, was a little confused when I first saw it, on a slightly relative note, my favourite part has to be 0:37, the tessellation looks incredibly detailed!

I think its great that we are now rendering cut scenes in real time but that's all they seem to be at the moment, cut scenes and tech demos.

When will we see actual games looking like this?

Err... Possibly Crysis 2 due out next year.Hopefully

next year, you might get this, but not in a game, just you can explore this utopia.
but i think perhaps 2012, or 2013, we should be seeing games close to this.

See the difference the foliage moving in the jungle scene makes? Glad they sorted that out as when it was perfectly still it just looked wrong.

There are so many free benchmark programs out there, who cares about the one you have to pay for!

The sad truth is we will only see games looking that good about a year or two after the release of the PS4 and Xbox720.

No developers are going to spend the kind of money needed in a full game just for the odd few super high end PC gamers. There is hardly any money in PC gaming so developers only make games as detailed as current consoles can handle.

nVidia's TWIMTBP does help a bit and we get some AA, higher res and more detailed textures but thats about it. But 3DMark 11 shows what games could look like today but when you look at what we are playing its pretty sad.

Fingers crossed that Crysis 2 hasn't been too crippled by being made for consoles.
