3DMark Fire Strike, Sky Diver and Time Spy Benchmarks of PowerColor Red Devil RX 570

The 3D Mark series has a few benchmarks which is capable of testing the various DX11 and DX12 capabilities of the graphics card.

3DMark Time Spy is a new DirectX 12 benchmark test for Windows 10 gaming PCs. Time Spy is one of the first DirectX 12 apps to be built “the right way” from the ground up to fully realize the performance gains that the new API offers. With its pure DirectX 12 engine, which supports new API features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading, Time Spy is the ideal test for benchmarking the latest graphics cards.

Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today’s high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today.

3DMark Sky Diver is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming laptops and mid-range PCs. Use 3DMark Sky Diver to benchmark systems with mainstream graphics cards, mobile GPUs, or integrated graphics. It is especially suitable for DirectX 11 systems that cannot achieve more than single-digit frame rates in the more demanding Fire Strike test.

The three tests are done using default benchmark settings.

In 3DMark Fire Strike DX11 benchmark, we can see that the Radeon RX 570 benchmark performance is on par with that of the 1060 6GB card. When overclocked, we get another boost to 11491 marks.

In Sky Diver, the results aren’t too far apart too. The PowerColor RX 570 in fact leads by almost 400 points in this DX 11 benchmark.

Time Spy the DX 12 benchmark shows a different result where we see the RX 570 falling slightly behind the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. It is compensated when we overclock it slightly by around 6.5% above it’s default clock.
