3DMark Port Royal is the world’s first dedicated real-time ray tracing benchmark for gamers. You can use Port Royal to test and compare the real-time ray tracing performance of any graphics card that supports Microsoft DirectX Raytracing. As well as benchmarking performance, 3DMark Port Royal provides a realistic and practical example of what to expect from ray tracing in upcoming games.
Port Royal is the other 3DMark benchmark we look at, as this tests a GPU’s ray tracing ability. While we look at this later in the review in more detail, here the RTX 3070 falls short of the RTX 2080 Ti by 6%. Compared to the RTX 2070 though, it’s 58% faster in this test.
