3DMark Time Spy Extreme 4K DX12 Benchmark – GTX 1080 Ti vs GTX 1080 vs RX Vega 64 vs GTX 1070 vs RX 580

3DMark recently released a new graphics benchmark test called Time Spy Extreme. According to the company, it is the world’s first 4K DirectX 12 benchmark test, and it’s a really demanding test; even more demanding than Fire Strike Extreme. Like the Fire Strike Extreme, you don’t need a 4K UHD monitor to run this benchmark test to find out if your system can handle the Time Spy Extreme, and see if you get acceptable results. But you will need a GPU with at least 4GB of dedicated memory; it is a demanding benchmark test after all. We tested 5 of our graphics cards here using the new benchmark test: GTX 1080 Ti, GTX 1080, GTX 1070, RX VEGA 64 and RX 580. Check out if these graphics cards can handle Time Spy Extreme.

3DMark Time Spy Extreme – 4K DirectX 12 Gaming Benchmark

Before I show you the results, here’s additional information regarding Time Spy Extreme.

Developed with input from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, and the other members of our Benchmark Development Program, 3DMark Time Spy Extreme is an ideal benchmark test for gaming systems with the latest high-end graphics cards and new processors with 8 or more cores.

DirectX 12 is a low-level graphics API that reduces processor overhead. With less overhead and better utilization of modern GPU hardware, DirectX 12 game engines can draw more objects, textures and effects to the screen. Keeping CPU overhead to a minimum is essential when stepping up from Full HD to 4K Ultra HD resolution.

Ideal for new multi-core processors
A decade or so ago, hardware sites were asking, “Will dual core processors enhance your gaming experience?” Today, we’re looking at new processors from AMD and Intel that can have up to 18 cores in some cases.

The CPU test has been redesigned to let processors with 8 or more cores perform to their full potential. Compared with Time Spy, the Extreme CPU test is three times more demanding. It also lets processors use more advanced instructions sets up to AVX2 when supported.

Availability
3DMark Time Spy Extreme will be available to the public on October 11 as a free update for 3DMark Advanced Edition and 3DMark Professional Edition licenses purchased after July 14, 2016. For copies bought before that date, Time Spy Extreme can be added to 3DMark by purchasing the Time Spy upgrade.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
