Synthetic Game Testing
3DMark – Fire Strike
“Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today’s high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today”
There might not be a substitute for raw core count in CPU rendered physics, but Intel tries hard to prove that wrong. We see the 11900K ahead of AMD’s 12-core offerings with the 10900K slightly behind.
3DMark – Time Spy
“3Dmark Time Spy is a new DirectX 12 benchmark test for Windows 10 gaming PCs. Time Spay is one of the first DirectX 12 apps to be built “the right way” from the ground up to fully realize the performance gains that the new API offers. With DirectX 12 engine, which supports new API features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading, Time Spy is the ideal test for benchmarking the latest graphics cards.”
Time Spy’s CPU Physics test shows the 11900K matching the AMD 5950X but both just behind the 10900K.
