Crytek Releases Hardware-Agnostic Raytracing Benchmark "Neon Noir"

Crytek today released the final build for their hardware-agnostic raytracing benchmark. Dubbed Neon Noir, the benchmark had already been showcased in video form back in March 2019, but now it's finally available for download for all interested parties from the Crytek Marketplace. The benchmark currently doesn't support any low-level API such as Vulkan or DX 12, but support for those - and the expected performance improvements - will be implemented in the future.

Neon Noir has its raytracing chops added via an extension of CRYENGINE's SVOGI rendering tool that currently Crytek's games use, including Hunt: Showdown, which will make it easier for developers to explore raytracing implementations that don't require a particular hardware implementation (such as RTX). However, the developer has added that they will add hardware acceleration support in the future, which should only improve performance, and will not add any additional rendering features compared to those that can be achieved already. What are you waiting for? Just follow the link below.
System requirements:
  • AMD Ryzen 5 2500X CPU/Core i7-8700
  • AMD Vega 56 8 GB VRAM/NVIDIA GTX 1070 8 GB VRAM
  • 16 GB System Ram
  • Win 10 x64
  • DX11

Well I figured this benchmark was all about GPU horsepower, no RTX involved but it seems your RTX 2060 is edging out my RX 5700 XT which gives me the impression that those RT/tensor cores are kicking in? Idk but I was just expecting a bit more but then again this benchmark is new, don't really have a reference point of performance yet. :toast:
I think the Navi cards are having an issue with this because even with my OC (2037 core, 5454 memory - which isn't that great anyway) that 5700XT should be trouncing my GTX 1080 by a lot more than 258. Yours isn't the only one I've noticed with unexpectedly low scores on this benchmark.

Are these numbers any good for my setup?

It ran good over 70 most of the time with lows only like 45 fps and temps never exceeded 75c on graphics or cpu both were pegged though. Crazy good I want to see some games on this
settings were 1920 x 1080, full screen, and RT set to Ultra

is there any way to extract just install to install offline, can you have so zip?
