3DMark today announced they've introduced a new benchmarking feature. Specifically developed to test Variable Rate Shading (VRS) performance and image quality differences, the new feature allows users to actually visualize the performance and image quality differences associated with more aggressive (or less aggressive) VRS settings. The algorithm is a smart one - it aims to reduce the number of pixel shader operations on surfaces where detail isn't as important (such as frame edges, fast-moving objects, darkened areas, etc) so as to improve performance and shave some precious milliseconds in the deployment of each frame.

Lai veiktu šo testu, jums būs nepieciešama Windows 10 versija 1903 vai jaunāka un DirectX 12 GPU, kas atbalsta 1. līmeņa VRS un “AdditionalShadingRatesSupported” iespējas, piemēram, uz NVIDIA Turing balstītu GPU vai Intel Ice Lake CPU. VRS funkciju pārbaude tagad ir pieejama kā bezmaksas 3DMark Advanced Edition atjauninājums vai, sākot no šī brīža, līdz 2. septembrim, 3DMark ir 75% atlaide, pērkot to Steam vai LU etalonu vietnē.
