I really like the FutureMark 3DMark benchmarks they just look so good, even though many time my computers can’t handle them, but hey they’re interesting to look at right? They put a lot of work into them and now we’ve finally got a new one to look forward to, 3DMark11 will be out on November 30th. You’ll be able to get both basic with is free and advanced edition for only $19.95

The new 3DMark 11 Pre-order Preview trailer shows off a number of improvements from the previously released work-in-progress tech demo videos. The Deep Sea scene now includes particle effects in the water as submersibles explore the sea bed and discover a sunken World War II submarine. In the High Temple scene the foliage is now animated and there are changes in the lighting conditions as the sun sets on the mysterious temple.
