Futuremark Working On New DirectX 12 and Vulkan Benchmarks

Futuremark is working on two new tests for its 3DMark benchmarking suite. The first is a new DirectX 12 benchmark. While we already have "Time Spy", the new DirectX 12 benchmark will be less taxing and is made to test notebook graphics and entry-level graphics cards. It will be much like how "Sky Diver" was a less intensive test to "Fire Strike".

DirectX 12 Mixed Multi-GPU Actually Works

One of the biggest features you will see talked about with DirectX 12 is asymmetric multi-GPU, which lets you mix and match different GPUs from both AMD and NVIDIA as long as they support a consistent feature-level. In the case of "Ashes of Singularity" that is Direct3D 12_0.
