The newest Nvidia GPU, the RTX series was launched recently and has introduced a rendering technique new for gaming. Ray tracing has been a long used technique of rendering for non-real-time scenes and for gaming it is rasterization. Now because of the newest GPU of Nvidia, the demand for intensive computation that ray tracing is here.
So, new graphics card with a new rendering technique for gaming means the demand for a new benchmark. That’s why 3DMark features a new benchmark software for gamers that want to test the real-time ray tracing power of their graphics card.
3DMark Port Royal is the world’s first dedicated real-time ray tracing benchmark for gamers. Compare the real-time ray tracing performance of any graphics card that supports Microsoft DirectX Raytracing. Real-time ray tracing promises us that it will bring new levels of realism to our in-game graphics experience.
Port Royal uses the newest DirectX Raytracing to enhance the reflections, shadows, and other effects that are difficult to achieve with traditional rendering techniques. And as well as benchmarking performance.
The 3DMark Port Royal will be a realistic and practical example of what we can expect from ray tracing in the upcoming games. It was developed with input from the leading technology companies like AMD, Intel, and Nvidia. Also with closely with Microsoft where they create a first-class implementation of the newest DirectX Raytracing API.
First full unveil of the newest benchmark from 3DMark will be at Galax GOC Grand Final on December 8 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The release date of 3DMark Port Royale
The Port Royale test will be coming to 3DMark in January 2019. There will more details to be announced like release date and pricing at the Galax GOC event on December 8.
