3DMark Time Spy Extreme Benchmark Now Available

The all new 3DMark Time Spy Extreme benchmark is now available and is integrated on here on HWBOT. The new test from Futuremark was rolled out yesterday as part of the v2.4.3819 release and is available 3DMark Advanced Edition and 3DMark Professional Edition licenses purchased after July 14, 2016. It claims to be the very first ever DirectX12 test with 4K Ultra HD resolution and includes support for AVX2 instructions. Time Spy Extreme has been added and integrated to the HWBOT benchmark list.

3DMark Time Spy Extreme - 4K DirectX 12 gaming benchmark - Time Spy Extreme is the world's first 4K DirectX 12 benchmark test. You don't need a 4K monitor to run it, though you will need a GPU with at least 4 GB of dedicated memory.

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.

The first few Time Spy Extreme scores have already been submitted. So far the highest comes from Totalnet (Nederlands) who managed a score of 5,308 marks using a TitanX Pascal card clocked at 1,791MHz (+26.39%) / 1,485MHz (+18.71%) paired with an Intel Core i7 5960X clocked at 4.8GHz (+60%).
