A preview of the successor to 3DMark Time Spy

With 3DMark being the definitive benchmarking tool for gamers and tech heads, check out the announcements from UL Solutions below with some glorious screenshots of SDMark Steel Nomad, the success to 3DMark Time Spy.

From UL Solutions: Thank you to the 3DMark community — the gamers, overclockers, hardware reviewers, tech-heads and those in the industry using our benchmarks, who have joined us in discovering what the cutting edge of PC hardware can do over this last quarter of a century.

Looking back, it’s amazing how far graphics have come, and we’re very excited to see what the next 25 years bring.

After looking back, it’s time to share a sneak peek of what’s coming next. Here are some preview screenshots for 3DMark Steel Nomad, our successor to 3DMark Time Spy. It’s been more than seven years since we launched Time Spy, and after more than 42 million submitted results, we think it’s time for a new heavy non-ray-tracing benchmark. Steel Nomad will be our most demanding non-ray-tracing benchmark and will not only support Windows using DirectX 12, but also macOS and iOS using Metal, Android using Vulkan, and Linux using Vulkan for Enterprise and reviewers.

To celebrate 3DMark’s 25th year, the scene will feature some callbacks to many of our previous benchmarks. We hope you have fun finding them all!
