Futuremark has this week revealed more details about future benchmarking for 3DMark.
This comes with the recent teaser that they posted this week, teasing what we can expect from DirectX 12 graphics in the near future, and the benchmarking that you will be using the test it.
Called Time Spy, the benchmarking mode has been designed to test DirectX 12 and the features of it.
Check out the teaser below.
Futuremark also explained more about the new benchmarking with the following:
Futuremark teased its first benchmark for DirectX 12 graphics, the 3DMark “Time Spy.” Likely marketed as an add-on to the 3DMark (2013) suite, “Time Spy” tests DirectX 12 features in a silicon-scorching 3D scene that’s rich in geometric, textural, and visual detail. The benchmark is also ready for new generation displays including high resolutions beyond 4K Ultra HD. Existing users of 3DMark get “Basic” access to “Time Spy” when it comes out, with the option to purchase its “Advanced” and “Professional” modes.
Under the hood, “Time Spy” takes advantage of Direct3D feature-level 12_0, including Asynchronous Compute, heavily multi-threaded CPUs (which can make use of as many CPU cores as you can throw at it), and DirectX explicit multi-adapter (native multi-GPU, including mixed setups). Futuremark stated that the benchmark was developed with inputs from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, Microsoft, and other partners of the Futuremark Benchmark Development Program.
