3DMark Steel Nomad is a DirectX12, Metal and Vulkan benchmark

Today, UL introduce a new cross-platform benchmark called Steel Nomad

Recently, we shared news about a 3D marking its 25th anniversary. The well-known benchmark suite is set to undergo an update, with the 3DMark development team planning a successor to Time Spy. This benchmark, now seven years old and boasting over 48 million submitted results, is a robust non-raytracing benchmark due for an overhaul.

The upcoming Steel Nomad is designed to work seamlessly across major operating systems, including Windows with DirectX12 API, macOS and iOS through Metal, and Android and Linux systems through Vulkan. It is unclear if results from various APIs can be directly compared, as further details on the benchmark’s functionality are still pending.
