UL objavljuje PCI Express značajku testiranja za 3DMark uoči PCIe 4.0 hardvera



With PCI-Express 4.0 graphics cards and motherboards soon to arrive, UL has released their PCI Express feature test for 3DMark. This latest addition has been designed to verify the bandwidth available to the GPU over a computer's PCI Express interface. To accomplish this, the test will make bandwidth the limiting factor for performance and does so by uploading a large amount of vertex and texture data to the GPU for each frame. The end goal is to transfer enough data over the PCIe 4.0 interface to thoroughly saturate it. Once the test is complete, the end result will be a look at the average bandwidth achieved during the test. Iako performanse igara u stvarnom životu vjerojatno neće biti ograničene PCIe propusnim opsegom, test pruža ponovljiv i pouzdan način za mjerenje propusnosti PCIe u generacijama, a samim time i performanse različitih hardverskih konfiguracija. Test značajki PCI Express dostupan je sada u 3DMark Advanced Edition i 3DMark Professional Edition i kompatibilan je s bilo kojim sustavom koji ima Direct X 12 kompatibilnu diskretnu grafičku karticu. Test se neće izvoditi na sustavima koji koriste integriranu grafiku, a na multi-GPU sustavima testirat će se samo primarni GPU. Nisu podržana ni vanjska GPU kućišta.
