EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 GAMING Review: Dialing-In On Performance

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 - Time Spy Performance And VR Score

3DMark Time Spy is a relatively new DirectX 12 benchmark test from Futuremark. It features a DirectX 12-optimized game engine, built from the ground up, to support bleeding-edge features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading. Time Spy is designed to test the DirectX 12 performance of the latest graphics cards using a variety of techniques and varied visual sequences. This benchmark was developed with input from AMD, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and the other members of the Futuremark Benchmark Development Program, to showcase the potential of close-to-the-metal, low-overhead APIs like DirectX 12.

Time Spy actually showed the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 with a slightly higher graphics score, but the overall score and individual frame rates for the game test were in-line with expectations. The EVGA card's slightly lower boost clock results in it finishing just behind Gigabyte's card.

VR SCore is a new benchmark from Basemark, designed to evaluate a PC's VR readyness.  It has both DirectX 12 and DirectX 11 code paths and measures how well a PC can run VR content, by loading both the CPU and GPU. While the benchmark can work with HMDs, and can actually measure latency when used in conjunction with a special tool available from Basemark, it will also run on standard displays to assess overall performance. We ran the Direct X 12 version of the benchmark here.

We saw more of the same in the VR Score benchmark. Here, the EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 once again notches in just behind the Gigabyte card, but slightly ahead of the Founder's Edition and more than capable of top-shelf VR performance.
