.3dr File Extension

Developer: Futuremark
File type: 3DMark Results File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .3dr. Files with the file extension .3dr can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .3dr files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .3dr file?

The 3DMark software is a small application developed by Futuremark, and this program uses files with the .3dr extension. These 3DR files contain data created by the 3DMark application after a user accesses the main feature integrated into this software. The 3DMark program can be used for determining the DirectX performance that can be expected from a Microsoft Windows-based system when used for 3D video gaming purposes, based on a set of benchmarks implemented by Futuremark into this application. The results of a test performed by a 3DMark user are stored by this application in the 3DR file. This means these data files are created and saved by 3DMark in the .3dr extension upon the completion of its benchmarking processes, and each 3DR file is then associated to the specific test performed by the user. This is so 3DMark can reference the data contained in these 3DR files, which are benchmark results, then display it for the user to see on a section of the application window. This also means these 3DR files help 3DMark perform as efficient as possible, since only the content of these 3DR files are referenced by the application, so the 3DR files themselves are not loaded unto the software.

how to open a .3dr file?

Launch a .3dr file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .3dr file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .3dr files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .3dr file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .3dr file will open the correct application.

Futuremark 3DMark

3DMark is a program that will serve as the gamer’s benchmark to determine the gaming capabilities of laptops with entry level, tablets, notebooks and older PCs that run on Windows XP. The program has different editions and markets. 3DMark 11 is the benchmark for DirectX 11, using its new features extensively such as compute shaders, tessellation and multi-threading. 3DMark Vantage is the gamer’s PC benchmark for DirectX 10 video cards. It features two CPU tests, two graphics tests and six feature tests. 3DMark06 is the benchmark for DirectX 9 giving you a comprehensive set of game benchmark tools for accurate analysis. A soon-to-be released 3DMark for Windows is the first unified benchmark that will test DirectX 9, DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 in notebooks, tablets and desktops. 3DMark for Android measures Android’s gaming performance and real-time graphics capabilities. Futuremark’s Benchmark Development Program aims to establish partnerships with leading technology and hardware manufacturers including NVIDIA, Intel, Microsoft, Imagination Technologies, AMD, Qualcomm and Samsung to help the company create impartial, high-standard benchmarks for measuring performance.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .3dr files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .3dr. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
