Page 4 : 3DMark DirectX 12 & DirectX 11 Benchmark Results

3DMark DirectX 12 Benchmark (2560 x 1440)

3DMark Time Spy is a new DirectX 12 benchmark that was released just days ago, just in time for this review. It supports new API features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading.

In Time Spy, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition was slightly (about 4%) faster than the Radeon RX 480. They would actually tie if the Compatibility Mode was not enabled for the Radeon RX 480.

For Direct 11 performance, we started testing the graphics cards using 3DMark at the most common gaming resolution – 1920 x 1080.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition did very well in this full HD test. It was 49% to 57% faster than the Radeon R9 380, and 5% to 10% faster than the new Radeon RX 480.

Then we took 3DMark up a notch to the resolution of 2560 x 1440. Let’s take a look!

Despite having 2 GB less memory than the Radeon RX 480, the GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition did even better at this higher resolution. It was now 12% to 16% faster than the new Radeon RX 480, and 57% to 66% faster than the Radeon R9 380.

This is torture, even for the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and the new GeForce GTX 1070!

In Graphics Test 1GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition pulled further away from the Radeon RX 480, with a 23% performance advantage.

However, in Graphics Test 2, it was just 3.5% faster than the Radeon RX 480, probably limited by its smaller 6 GB memory size.

Overall, the GeForce GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition was 11% to 21% faster than the Radeon RX 480, and 46% to 74% faster than the Radeon R9 380.
