Futuremark announces 3DMark 11

Good news for PC enthusiasts; Futuremark has announced 3DMark 11, their latest benchmark that’ll let you make your hardware sweat and scream, for Q3 2010.

The above ‘deep sea’ trailer was created using an early development build of this year’s engine and offers a glimpse at one of the scenes to be included in the full benchmark — usually made up of several wildly different ones — and, of course, DirectX11 is the magic word here.

The clip, according to Futuremark, shows what to expect from DX11 gaming and is “a hint of what the next generation of consoles might deliver in years to come”.

There’s a few screenshots from the scene in the gallery as well.
