A day ago UL released 3D Mark Port Royal, a dedicated real-time ray tracing benchmark for gamers. Port Royal uses DirectX Raytracing to enhance reflections, shadows, and other effects that are difficult to achieve with traditional rendering techniques. We ran some benchmarks with the current GeForce RTX graphics cards.
As well as benchmarking performance, 3DMark Port Royal is a realistic and practical example of what to expect from ray tracing in upcoming games—ray tracing effects running in real-time at reasonable frame rates at 2560 × 1440 resolution.
We ran some benchmarks with the current GeForce RTX graphics cards so that IF you have an RTX compatible card, you have some reference points in performance. See below the results of reference clocked cards on an 8-core Intel platform clocked at 4200 MHz on all cores.
