    I don't want to be *that guy*, but you wrote "Januari" in the title. :rolleyes:

    released? Hilbert must have a time machine, that explains a lot ;)

    Nice!

    Glad to see 3DMark being ahead of the curve with this, always helpful to have these kind of tools for testing and benching.

    This will be a benchamark for years to come.

    That's to be expected. If it did run slightly above that, fps would be too close to that in actual games. Then that benchmark would be mastered by GPUs within 2 generations.
    It is better to set graphical bar and let HW to play catch-up.

    Looking forward to it, the preview you showcased on RTX review was really intriguing !

    So I'm guessing it's real dx12 standard raytrace api not bound by anything, e.g. only RT cores..

    Futuremark makes benchmarks containing the latest and greatest in graphics technology regardless of whether or not either company has hardware that properly supports it. Or do you not recall their last release Time Spy, which IIRC relied quite heavily on async compute even though nVidia didn't fully support it on their cards at the time. I was critical of nVidia for not having full async compute support at the time, and the same criticism today goes to AMD for the exact same reasons. Even more so considering they aren't even planning on making a card that supports raytracing anytime soon. And it's not like AMD didn't know this was coming since everyone knew about DXR coming to the forefront by Microsoft. It's just that nV came up with what is likely a much better way to do it. While AMD came up with a *shrug*.

    in press notes it says all 3 makers, amd, intel and nvidia.

    And this raytracing is not bound to nvidia it can be done in "software" or directcompute too.

    Remember the PhysX cards we all used , well maybe some genus will come up with a RayX card .

    So maybe in 5 years, someone will be able to run this benchmark at a reasonable framerate. At this point, just seems like a tool for continual conformation that raytracing is heavily taxing.

    @Monchis/0blivious
    please
    list ANY single chip gpu that could run the "matching" 3DMark bench (at release date/year) at +30fps,
    even going back to madonion days, with highest settings/resolution.
