Right, I have been a bit curious about how dx12 is panning out, and I have noticed there really are not many actual GAME benchmarks out that stress both cpu and gpu using dx12 api. I seen that the game Ashes of the Singularity has a built in dx12 benchmark, and given the game is a cpu intensive RTS this would be quite an interesting benchmark to compare new and old hardware on. What you guys think? Have you seen any review sites use Ashes of the Singularity as a standing bench tool to compare cpus and gpus with? If not, are anyone of you guys with multiple gaming systems prepared to bench them for the greater good ? I myself would be curious to see the performance difference in dx11 and dx12 with socket: 1156 1366 1150 2011 and 1151 Whats interesting with this "Ashes of the Singularity" is that it also gives a theoretical GPU unlimited CPU value, which I feel is a quite interesting value and indicator.

Spoiler What I find really interesting with this particular benchmark is the AVERAGE CPU FRAMERATE, which is an indicator for POTENTIAL fps IF the GPU has unlimited compute power. So its a value free of GPU bottle-necking. When we look at the AMD FX8320 benchmark we can see that it is keeping up well in DX12 as well although at a mere 3.5 ghz. When focusing on the top left picture holding the LOW preset benchmark values we notice we are massively CPU limited, which is a big no no for anyone looking for 120+ fps on their monitor. I would love if others could try and run this benchmark with their systems and see what their potential FPS is in DX12 with x y z processor in place. /EDIT2 If a mod could help me put these pics in a thumbnail it would be golden!
