UL is working on a next-gen benchmark focusing on the latest graphics technologies

3DMark Speed Way benchmark will benefit from ray tracing technology and real-time global illumination. This benchmark, which was designed with sponsorship from Lenovo Legion product, will be a showpiece for DirectX 12 Ultimate.

This includes, mesh shading and variable rate shading, which are already available as separate feature tests in 3D Mark benchmarking software.

According to UL, Speed Way will be released later this year, and it will be available on Steam. It is unclear if the benchmark will be offered as a free upgrade, or that it will requite a separate DLC purchase.
