3DMark Time Spy and Stress Test
Rendered at a 2,560x1,440 QHD resolution and making use of DX12 technologies such as asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter and multi-threading, Time Spy is a forward-looking 3DMark benchmark that hints at GPU potential in various upcoming games.
With Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1070 Ti and AMD's Radeon RX Vega occupying our attention in recent months, we'd almost forgotten how GTX 1080 Ti is a class apart in terms of performance. The ability to stand alone in the single-GPU performance stakes is what allows such lofty pricing, and nothing else in the consumer space comes close.
MSI's Gaming X Trio, as expected, tops the chart with a healthy lead over Nvidia's Founders Edition. Hinting at the cooler's potential, MSI's card passes the Stress Test with ease though the same can't be said for the Nvidia reference board.
