3DMark Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today’s high-performance gaming PCs. It is our [FutureMark’s] 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.
Let’s kick things off with a look at 3DMark synthetic benchmarks. Here, the performance uplift for the RTX 3070, compared to the RTX 2070, ranges from 49% in Fire Strike, up to 61% in Fire Strike Ultra. Up against the RTX 2080 Ti, we can see small losses in Fire Strike and Time Spy – by 3% and 4%, respectively – before the 3070 nudges ahead in Fire Strike Ultra.
