3DMark Time Spy

Homepage: | Publisher: UL | Download: Free Basic Edition (Steam)

Rendered at QHD or UHD resolutions and making use of DX12 technologies such as asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter and multi-threading, Time Spy is a modern 3DMark benchmark that hints at GPU potential in today's latest games.

We begin, as always, with the synthetic 3DMark tests. Sapphire's Toxic, on the latest driver at the time of writing, pulls out a four per cent lead over AMD's reference board, with our logs revealing a real-world frequency of around 2,470MHz. That's quick, but heightened speed alone isn't enough to out muscle a factory overclocked GeForce RTX 3090.

It should also come as no surprise to find all three Sapphire cards in our line-up featured in the top four positions of the Stress Test. Few AIB partners do stability quite so well, and a score of 99.2 per cent for the Toxic card is excellent.
