3DMark Time Spy – DirectX 12 benchmark test available now

3DMark Time Spy, a new DirectX 12 benchmark test, was released on Steam a few hours ago, and is now also available to buy from the Futuremark website.
 
Before I get into the details of our new test, I’d like to say that I am sorry that you are only receiving this news now. We hit an unexpected problem with the standalone installer today that prevented us from making the simultaneous launch and announcement we had planned.

3DMark Time Spy
Developed with input from AMD, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and the other members of our Benchmark Development Program, 3DMark Time Spy is one of the first DirectX 12 apps to be built “the right way” from the ground up to fully realize the performance gains that the new API offers. 
 
DirectX 12, introduced with Windows 10, is a low-level graphics API that reduces processor overhead. With less overhead and better utilization of modern GPU hardware, a DirectX 12 game engine can draw more objects, textures and effects to the screen. How much more? Take a look at the table below that compares Time Spy with Fire Strike, a high-end DirectX 11 test.
With its pure DirectX 12 engine, which supports new API features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading, 3DMark Time Spy is the ideal benchmark for testing the DirectX 12 performance of the latest graphics cards.
