[Various]Exclusive: 3DMark Time Spy supports Asynchronous Computing

Quote:
To verify if Time Spy incorporates Async Compute technology we reached out to James Gallagher, a Marketing Manager at Futuremark:
Quote:
Time Spy uses asynchronous compute to overlap rendering passes. GPUs supporting async compute can process work from multiple queues in parallel. There are three types of queue: graphics, compute, and copy. A graphics queue executes rendering commands and can also handle other work types. A compute queue only accepts compute work, and a copy queue only accepts copy operations. The queues all race for the same resources so the overall benefit depends very much on the workload. We’ll be talking more about the technical side of Time Spy in the coming weeks.

Quote:
Time Spy uses the new DirectX 12 API and supports new features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading. It will have reviewers digging out hardware they thought they had already tested to provide you with new benchmark data points that will apply to the currently available DX12 games as well as those which will be released.

Developed with input from AMD, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and the other members of the Futuremark Benchmark Development Program, Time Spy shows the exciting potential of low-level, low-overhead APIs like DirectX 12.

It will be kinda of hard, since nVidia's cards don't have async...

Still waiting for the nvidia promised drivers with enabled async compute for Maxwell (GTX970,980).......
post #5 of 61
Not sure what the fuss is about, video of benchmark ran butter smooth on my NoSync 980 Ti.
post #6 of 61
Maxwell will never be able to do asynchronous compute ( concurrent graphics and compute ). Nvidia lied about this and I'd love to go back and find those members that were so vocal about Nvidia's magic async driver.

About this benchmark, I'm hoping that this will finally answer if Pascal can handle asynchronous compute because that's the only way we all move forward.
post #7 of 61
We can probably expect something similar from nvidia about async to what happened when AMD announced the 480 and that it would target VR for $200.
Hey guys we can do async, then we go to who needs async, it'll be another 100 years before the technology can be really leveraged.

now amd can say CF RX480 doesn't only outperfom 1080 in aots, but other benchmarks prove that too.

I suspect 3dmark may be the better game



With a bit of these in between, just so we're sure we aren't missing any flamebait:

Haha, sounds plausible. I also suspect async can only be enabled if tessellation is set to 10580547409

Hopefully this version of 3DMark knows how to use AMD CPUs.

... well I think Pascal has VP9 acceleration... So watching a video of it on Youtube will be fully accelerated... biggrin.gif

Silly us, we almost forgot mentioning the 970. wink.gif

It took only 20 23 posts, gentlemen. thumb.gif
Good job. It looks like we don't even need any preluding conversation anymore.

But never you mind folks, it all boils down to this, anyway.
