4K DirectX 12 benchmark coming on October 11
Futuremark said that it will soon release its newest 4K DirectX 12 benchmark, the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme.
Based on Unigine 2 engine
Unigine, mostly known for its Valley and Heaven benchmarks, has released its latest GPU benchmark, the Superposition.
4096 Stream Processors and 8GB of HBM2 memory
An alleged SiSoft benchmark result leak that has been spotted recently has revealed a bit more information on what appears to be at least one version of the upcoming AMD Vega GPU.
Looking better and better
While we are yet to see an actual device powered by Qualcomm's upcoming flagship Snapdragon 835 SoC, the latest benchmark shows promising performance.
To be revealed at CES 2017
It appears that Futuremark will reveal a couple of new tests that will be a part of its 3DMark benchmark and take advantage of both DirectX 12 as well as Vulkan API.
Brings Async Compute, explicit multi-GPU and multi-threading
Futuremark has now officially released its new Time Spy benchmark, an upgrade which adds the new DirectX 12 test to the 3DMark benchmarking software.
May be an optimization issue
On Tuesday, AMD unveiled Radeon RX 480, the first graphics card in its tenth-generation Radeon lineup, based on 14nm FinFET Polaris architecture, and already some critics have claimed that some aspects of the benchmark are not giving an accurate presentation of CrossFireX performance when tested against Nvidia's high-end Geforce GTX 1080.
Faster than GTX Titan Z
The official press slides for the recently announced Radeon Pro Duo graphics card also brought the first performance figures from 3DMark FireStrike benchmark where the new dual-GPU graphics card is significantly faster than the GTX Titan Z.
With new 3DMark UI and VRMark preview
Futuremark has released the new 3DMark Holiday Beta update for its 3DMark benchmarking software which brings both a new UI for 3DMark as well as a preview for the upcoming VRMark benchmark.
