Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB Review: A Custom, Overclocked Beast

Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti - Time Spy Performance And VR Score

3DMark Time Spy is a relatively new DirectX 12 benchmark test from Futuremark. It features a DirectX 12 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.

The performance trend we've seen thus far continued in Time Spy. The Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti continued to lead the pack, outpacing the Titan X and Founder's Edition 1080 Ti by a small margin.

DirecX12 VR Performance

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.

The relatively new VR Score benchmark also had the Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in the pole position, which isn't surprising considering the card's higher clocks and monstrous cooling solution.
