Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark for modern gaming PCs. Its ambitious real-time graphics are rendered with detail and complexity far beyond other DirectX 11 benchmarks and games. Fire Strike includes two graphics tests, a physics test and a combined test that stresses the CPU and GPU. (UL).
3DMark Time Spy is a DirectX 12 benchmark test for Windows 10 gaming PCs. Time Spy is one of the first DirectX 12 apps to be built the right way from the ground up to fully realize the performance gains that the new API offers. With its pure DirectX 12 engine, which supports new API features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading, Time Spy is the ideal test for benchmarking the latest graphics cards. (UL).
Starting with our 3DMark benchmarks, we can see the RTX 3070 Ti out-scoring the RTX 3070 by varying degrees across the three tests. In Fire Strike, for instance, the RTX 3070 Ti is 6% faster, while this increases to 8% in the DX12 Time Spy Test. Fire Strike Ultra, meanwhile, sees the 3070 Ti outperform the 3070 by a 7% margin.
