Futuremark Releases Trailer for DX12 Benchmark Time Spy

Posted: 12:51PM

It was only a matter of time before Futuremark would release a benchmark for testing your system's DirectX 12 performance. While it is not here just yet, the DX12 Time Spy benchmark is coming soon, so the company has released its official trailer and several screenshots. It will be available for all versions of 3DMark on Windows.

Futuremark has previously released an API overhead feature test, which measured the number of draw calls a computer could make using different APIs, including DirectX 12, but this did not represent a true benchmark. Time Spy will be that benchmark and to make sure of that, it is using a purely DirectX 12 engine, designed to support features such as multi-threading, asynchronous computer, and explicit multi-adapter. Built with input from Microsoft, AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA, Time Spy is meant to not only push our computers but show the potential of low-level, low-overhead APIs like DirectX 12.

No word yet on the benchmark's release date, but 3DMark Advanced Edition is available at 80% off right now, along with PCMark 8 Advanced Edition, as part of the Steam Summer Sale.
