A build of 3DMark Time Spy Extreme has been sent to the media and here we have some 3DMark Time Spy Extreme benchmarks for you to check out. These concern the ASUS STRIX RX Vega 64, Nvidia GTX 1080 and Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti. All three are high-end GPUs meant for 4K gaming.
3DMark Time Spy Extreme is the worlds first 4K DirectX 12 benchmark test. You will not need a 4K monitor in order to carry out this benchmark. What you do need is a GPU with 4 GB of VRAM. DirectX 12 is a low-level graphics API that reduces the workload on the CPU and allows the GPU to be utilized better.
The benchmark is not out for the general public yet but should be updated soon. From the benchmark below you can see that the ASUS STRIX RX Vega 64 is able to score 3519 points which is more than the 3385 points that the Nvidia GTX 1080 manages to score. The Nvidia GTX 1080 TI came on top with 4331 points.
It is no surprise that the GTX 1080 Ti came out on top, as it is the best performing GPU on the market as of right now, especially when it comes to 4K gaming. The CPU used for these tests was the Intel i7 5960X. 3DMark Time Spy Extreme is three times more demanding than the original Time Spy.
3DMark Time Spy Extreme will be made available to the public on the 11th of October through a free software update so stay tuned for more information regarding the new benchmark. This test has been designed so that it can make use of the CPUs that have multiple cores, now that there are mainstream CPU will 8 or more cores.
let us know what you think about the new 3DMark Time Spy Extreme benchmark and how well the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti performs as compared to the ASUS STRIX RX Vega 64.
