Steam VR Performance Test, Time Spy

The Steam VR Performance Test measures a system's performance using a 2-minute sequence from Valve’s Aperture Robot Repair VR demo. After running the test, it determines whether your system is capable of properly running VR content at 90Hz and whether or not the visual fidelity can be increased to the recommended level for a given application. Both a system’s CPU and GPU are factored into the score.

Direct X 12 Performance
3DMark Time Spy is a 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.
