Futuremark previewed its upcoming 3DMark benchmark for DirectX 12 at an overclocked event hosted by GALAX. This new benchmark is expected to be released in 2016 and will feature two GPU tests and one CPU test. One of the GPU tests is named Time Spy, which you can see in the (low-quality) YouTube clip.
While NVIDIA advertises its Maxwell-based GeForce GTX 980 Ti with full DirectX 12_1 support, AMD proudly presents the power of Asynchronous Computing which GCN based graphics cards can offer. Synthetic benchmarks may be the perfect illustration of real-gaming scenarios, but they do measure raw performance, which is important for low-level instructions used by the new API. So which graphics cards will top the charts in 3DMark Time Spy? To answer this question we have to wait for official release of the new benchmark, which is expected early next year.
