Graphics card maker GALAX revealed Futuremark’s 3DMark Time Spy benchmark at a media event held in China. Futuremakrk’s unnamed upcoming next-generation 3DMark suite will include many DirectX 12 game tests, one which is Time Spy. This game tests is set in a museum-like 3D scene and many lighting effects. Miniature exhibits featuring previous scenes from 3DMark benchmarks are shown.
The Time Spy benchamrk will render at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K. It is said to be “5 times” more graphically intensive on your GPU than Futuremark’s “Fire Strike” DirectX 11 test. The benchmark will require Windows 10 64-bit, since it needs the Direct3D 12 API support and more than 2GB of memory. Futuremark says there will be an early Q1 2016 launch for this benchmark.
