3DMark adds a Tier 2 Variable-Rate Shading benchmark test

UL Benchmarks has announced that it has added a Tier 2 Variable-Rate Shading benchmark test in 3DMark. In case you aren’t aware of, Variable-Rate Shading (VRS) is a new DirectX 12 feature that lets game developers improve performance by selectively reducing the level of detail in parts of the frame where it’s unlikely to be noticed.

First PCIe 4.0 benchmark test coming to 3DMark later this Summer

UL Benchmarks has announced that the first PCIe 4.0 benchmark test will be coming to 3DMark later this Summer. In case you weren’t aware of, the new PCI Express 4.0 interfaces provide up to twice the bandwidth of PCI Express 3.0 and thanks to its higher bandwidth, games can transfer more data, reduce loading times, and support more complex scenes. Continue reading First PCIe 4.0 benchmark test coming to 3DMark later this Summer

AMD Radeon VII 3DMark and Final Fantasy XV benchmarks leaked online

AMD Radeon VII releases on February 7th and while the red team released a few gaming benchmarks, some new benchmarks were leaked online yesterday. These new benchmarks are from 3DMark and Final Fantasy XV and we can see, perhaps for the first time, how AMD’s upcoming GPU fares against NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX2080.

Futuremark shows accurate reflections with DXR, first raytracing tech demo coming at the end of 2018

Futuremark has shared with us some GIFs, showing some of the visual improvements that are coming with real-time raytracing. According to the team, real-time raytracing can render accurate real-time reflections of dynamic objects, can produce reflections of objects that exist outside the main camera view, can produce accurate, perspective-correct reflections on all surfaces in real-time, and they can make other surfaces (than mirrors) look more realistic too. Continue reading Futuremark shows accurate reflections with DXR, first raytracing tech demo coming at the end of 2018
