Update Your Sig: 3DMark Launches New Direct X12 Test

The most essential item for PC gaming is not a mouse, nor a keyboard, nor even a PC. Without a sweet forum signature proudly declaring your 3DMark [official site] scores, you may as well give up and play Monopoly. I'm sure you'll be both overjoyed and anxious to hear that 3DMark devs Futuremark have expanded the graphics benchmark with a new test stressing DirectX 12…

Shattered Horizon On The, Er, Horizon

Shattered Horizon is a rather clever physics shooter from Futuremark - you know, those chaps who make benchmarking apps to gauge how buff your PC is. Their game, as it happens, is also about the high end PC, being tuned for Vista/Windows 7, and requiring DirectX 10 as a minimum. It's a "multiplayer first-person shooter with unique freedom of movement and realistic zero gravity combat."…
