3DMark Time Spy Extreme CPU And GPU Benchmarks Reveal How Well Hardware Holds Up Against The New Benchmark
We saw some 3DMark Time Spy Extreme benchmarks previously but now we have been able to have a go at the benchmark ourselves and we have tested the RX Vega 64, Nvidia GTX 1080, Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti, GTX 1060 and AMD RX 580 graphics cards. On the CPU side, we tested the Ryzen 7 1700 and Intel Core i7 6800k.
For the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme CPU benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 1700 was clocked at 3.9GHz and the Intel Core i7 6800k was clocked at 4.1GHz. The Radeon Crimson 17.9.3 and Nvidia GeForce 385.69 drivers were used to carry out these tests.
Taking a look at the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme benchmarks, it is no surprise that the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti comes on top. It is interesting to see that the AMD Vega 64 liquid cooled edition was able to get a lead over the Nvidia GTX 1080. While the difference is not a huge one, it is still there.
Moving on to mid-range graphics cards, we see that the Nvidia GTX 1060 was able to perform better as compared to the AMD RX 580. Again, the lead is not a huge one. You can check out the specifics below:
Moving on to the CPU side of things it is interesting to see that the Ryzen 7 1700 was able to beat the Intel Core i7 6800k by a fair margin. The Ryzen 7 1700 clocked at 3.9 GHz was able to outperform the Intel Core i7 6800k that was clocked at 4.1 GHz.
The Ryzen 7 1700 does have 2 additional cores and 4 additional threads, those might be coming into play here. You can check out the numbers below:
We would like to share more results with you but at this point in time, this is all the hardware that we have to play with. It is possible that future driver updates will enable better performance but you should not expect a huge leap in performance numbers.
Let us know what you think about these 3DMark Time Spy Extreme benchmarks.
