Synthetic Game Test – 3DMark

We used 3DMark’s Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme synthetic benchmarks, which offers a great approximation of gaming performance in general.

The Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme benchmarks support DirectX 12, and the latest features like asynchronous compute, and multi-threading support.

Time Spy – 2560 x 1440

In the Time Spy test, the PowerColor Radeon RX 5500 XT was 17% faster than the GeForce GTX 1060, and just under 20% slower than the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER.
