3DMark Time Spy just recently came out and it is the latest and greatest DirectX 12 benchmark test for gaming PCs running Windows 10. This DirectX 12 Feature Level 11_0 benchmark utilizes a pure DirectX 12 game engine that supports features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading! The developers opted to use DirectX 12 Feature Level 11_0 to ensuring wide compatibility with DirectX 11 hardware through DirectX 12 drivers.
With DirectX 12 on Windows 10, game developers can significantly improve the multi-thread scaling and hardware utilization of their titles to draw more objects, textures and effects for your viewing enjoyment. 3DMark Fire Strike is a great high-end DirectX 11 benchmark test, but doesn’t really show off what new graphics cards can do on a DirectX 12 game title that will have much more going on while you are playing.
We ran 3DMark Time Spy with the standard settings and got the following results:
In this DX12 benchmark we see the Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 Limited Edition came in with a score of 4,830 points, but that EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 FTW wasn’t too far behind with a score of 4,800 points and the Radeon R9 380X came in at 3,362 points.
