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.
Steel Nomad is expected to become a new addition to the list of 3DMark software within the current benchmark stack. The release date for Steel Nomad has not been officially disclosed, but the company has shared three screenshots from the benchmark, offering a glimpse into the new scenes that will make our GPUs sweat.
