3DMark DLC Brings the Speed Way DirectX12 Ultimate GPU Benchmark

UL Solutions is excited to announce that their new DirectX 12 Ultimate Benchmark 3DMark Speed Way is now available to download and buy on Steam and on the UL Solutions website. – Developed with input from AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, and other leading technology companies, Speed Way is an ideal benchmark for comparing the DirectX 12 Ultimate performance of the latest graphics cards.

3DMark Speed Way

DirectX 12 Ultimate is the next-generation application programming interface (API) for gaming graphics. It adds powerful new capabilities to DirectX 12, helping game developers improve visual quality, boost frame rates, reduce loading times and create vast, detailed worlds.

Speed Way’s engine demonstrates what the latest DirectX API brings to ray-traced gaming, using DirectX Raytracing tier 1.1 for real-time global illumination and real-time ray-traced reflections, coupled with new performance optimizations like mesh shaders.

Features

VS. mode
The new VS. mode lets you see and compare how your PC performs during a Speed Way benchmark run. Add another Speed Way result for comparison and benchmark against friends, 3DMark Hall of Famers, or community members with the latest gaming hardware.

Interactive mode
Freely explore the Speed Way scene in interactive mode. You can adjust camera focus settings, change the lighting settings and use the built-in capture tool to compare how the latest ray tracing techniques affect visuals.

Available now
3DMark Speed Way is available now in Advanced Edition and Professional Edition. Speed Way does not run in Basic Edition or the 3DMark Demo on Steam.

To run Speed Way, you’ll need Windows 11 or Windows 10, 64-bit version 21H2 or later. You’ll also need a graphics card with at least 6GB of video memory and drivers that support DirectX 12 Ultimate.
