3DMark Time Spy

Homepage: benchmarks.ul.com | Publisher: UL | Download: Free Basic Edition (Steam)

Rendered at QHD or UHD resolutions and making use of DX12 technologies such as asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter and multi-threading, Time Spy is a modern 3DMark benchmark that hints at GPU potential in today's latest games.

It's difficult to eke out a large lead over the Founders Edition card because it boosts higher than its reported 1,710MHz, leaving partners with limited scope to operate at higher frequencies.

That said, the Asus model is able to surpass 9,000 marks in the Extreme test - it wasn't long ago that 9,000 was considered genuinely premium at the lesser default test.

The massive cooler also does better at keeping consistency over time; it passes the tough Extreme Stress Test - the FE does not.
