Pasi Virtanen, the product manager for Futuremark’s 3DMark, has taken the time at a Chinese media event to reveal a new GPU test that will be included within the next version of 3DMark. The new test, which is currently known as "Time Spy," utilizes DirectX 12 in order to push graphics cards to the limit. The test is supposed to be roughly five times heavier on GPUs than Fire Strike is, and will render in 1080p, 1440p, and 4K for cards that have over 2GB of memory.

While no official release date for the new 3DMark suite has been announced, it is expected that it will be released in the first quarter of next year. The suite will include the newly revealed GPU test as well as an additional GPU benchmark and a CPU test.
