3DMark Port Royal is the world’s first real-time ray tracing benchmark for gamers, Allowing those interested to test and compare the real-time ray tracing performance of any graphics card that supports Microsoft DirectX Raytracing.
“Real-time ray tracing promises to bring new levels of realism to in-game graphics. Port Royal uses DirectX Raytracing to enhance reflections, shadows, and other effects that are difficult to achieve with traditional rendering techniques. As well as benchmarking performance, 3DMark Port Royal provides a realistic and practical example of what to expect from ray tracing in upcoming games.”
