Fixes multi-GPU issues, adds new test

Futuremark has released a new update (v.1.1.0) for its latest 3DMark benchmarking utility that fixes low-result bug on multi-GPU systems and adds the new Ice Storm Extreme test to the Windows edition of the benchmark.

Futurmark's latest 3DMark had some problems with systems running three or four GPUs and although it was, according to Futuremark, quite a serious bug, they managed to fix it. The update should slightly increase results on systems running two GPUs and significantly on systems with three or four GPUs.

In addition to multi-GPU performance fix, the new version of the 3DMark also fixes issues caused by the Windows update KB2670838 as well as the problem with the bloom post-processing effect when using very high rendering resolutions in custom settings.

The new update also adds the new Ice Storm Extreme benchmark test to the Windows edition of the 3DMark Advanced and Professional Editions. The Ice Storm Extreme is a Direct3D feature level 9 test aimed at tablets, ultrabooks and notebooks and its new Extreme mode raises the resolution from 720p to 1080p and uses higher quality textures and post-processing effects in the graphics tests to create a more demanding load for the latest mobile devices. The new test also makes it possible to directly compare results from Windows and Android devices.

The new version can be found over at Futuremark's website while Steam Edition will be updated automatically.
