Futuremark Release 3DMARK Time Spy DirectX 12 Trailer

 

Almost everyone with an interest in PC gaming has heard of 3DMARK, the application that is easily the most popular and widely used PC performance benchmarks on the market. It has been used in countless reviews over the years and has over time became a name that can be associated with almost every major PC hardware release.

With DirectX 12 starting to appear in modern games Futuremark needed to step up and create a tool that can fairly represent and compare a wide range of hardware on the new API, allowing gamers and hardware enthusiasts to compare their system and easily judge their performance gains while overclocking.  

Time Spy has been built from the ground up to make the best use of DirectX 12, supporting explicit Multi-GPU, Asynchronous Compute and the heavy Multi-threading that DirectX 12 can provide. The basic edition of this benchmark will come free to all current owners of 3DMARK, with the full version coming as a DLC/add-on for the application.  

 

Time Spy is a new DirectX 12 benchmark test, coming soon to all Windows editions of 3DMark. Get a glimpse of gaming's future while revisiting classic 3DMark scenes from the past. How many can you spot in the trailer?

The music is an original composition by Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen from the band Poets of the Fall.

 

In this new benchmark, Futuremark will be giving gamers a glimpse of a lot of classic 3DMARK environments, over time increasing the complexity of the scene and giving your system a tough gaming load.  

Below is a few screenshots from the trailer above, showcasing what will be some familiar environments for some, particularly if you have been benchmarking for a number of years.

Looks good but knowing Futuremark it will run like a dog and need 4 x top end cards to get a decent score.Quote

Well at least with Explicit Multi-GPU 3DMARK should be able to support 4 cards, even if Nvidia don't support it.Quote

I'd like to see more consistent CPU/Physics scores. As it is now it can vary little too much.Quote

i only use the tests to give me an idea of % gain and temps So i like that it would need 4 gpus and 4 12 core cpus to get massive scores.
It means that the program is gonna last a while, and still be relevant in basic tests for years to come.
i dont really compare to other peoples systems so discrepancies arent an issue for me.
and when it comes to bench tests i read online... well tom seems to run a tight ship when it comes to nailing down possible rogue variables. so whats 10-20 points here or there when you also have all the other data points.Quote
