Hi all,

I have created a new RayTracing benchmark, designed to know how performing our GPUs are, and to find the best overclock. It's very easy and fast to try it: download, decompress and execute, without installing anything.

You can find more information and the free download link at the project's page: https://marvizer.itch.io/pure-raytracing-benchmark


I would be very glad if you could try it and share your results! (If only passing one benchmark, I would recommend the Common Settings at QHD).

Updates scores: at the same itch.io project's page.

Thank you very much and best regards!

Yours is content and it is based on newest Unreal Engine?
Would be nicer if it didn't automatically initialize VR headset at start :)

Thank you very much!

It's made with latest UE4 version. And yes, all mine except 3D models; I used some marketplace packs for models, as my goal was to focus in lighting, ray tracing capabilities and benchmarking measurements (and the rest, of course, like camera effects, ambience, gameplay...).

Didn't realise about the VR headset. I didn't try it with a HMD connected :laugh: , but will keep an eye on it for an upcomming update!

I'm working too in an option to use it without Ray Tracing, so all kind of users will be able to pass it as a "normal" benchmark too.

Best regards!

@miguel1900 System requirements ?
1) Windows version Win7/Win10 and if Win10, does it need RayTracing enabled build ?
2) DirectX or Vulkan ?
3) Does it use software RT or is it RTX only ?
4) Are RayTracing 1.0 cards (ie. Pascal) "good enough" ?
5) How much RAM/VRAM is needed (and when you will "run out") ?
6) Do you need special CPU instructions to run it (AVX/SSE4.2/FMA, etc.)
7) What can be called a "recommended CPU" (do you need more cores or is it single threaded benchmark) ?

Hi @agent_x007 , good questions! Will try to clarify them (but, basically, the same system requirements to execute RT, in general):
1) Windows version Win7/Win10 and if Win10, does it need RayTracing enabled build ? As for RT in general, Nvidia GPU (currently) with drivers 425.31 or higher, Windows 10 v1809 or higher.
2) DirectX or Vulkan ? DirectX 12
3) Does it use software RT or is it RTX only ? Hmmm not sure about this meaning. It's "real" Ray Tracing, but even an AMD could run it, but RT wouldn't be working, if it helps to your question in any sense.
4) Are RayTracing 1.0 cards (ie. Pascal) "good enough" ? They can run it, but the performance gap is the well known huge gap. They will run it at a very low FPS.
5) How much RAM/VRAM is needed (and when you will "run out") ? Not sure. I will need more testers, but 6gb of Vram seems to be enough, as even my old GTX 1060 6gb ran it (but at 6fps).
6) Do you need special CPU instructions to run it (AVX/SSE4.2/FMA, etc.). You don't, as far as I know.
7) What can be called a "recommended CPU" (do you need more cores or is it single threaded benchmark)? If it isn't a bottleneck for your GPU, any kind of CPU should run smoothly. CPU is almost "sleeping", being only a high-demandant GPU benchmark.

Thank you!

Hi @Toothless , with which GPU? Were you sure your PC was executing Ray Tracing? An already tested RTX 2070 gets around 6fps at 4k/Pro.

I never bought into the ray tracing gimmick, and system specs are current if that helps.

The best .png ray traced pictures ever.

Of course, don't worry!

Thank you for downloading and using :) The most important thing is to make it useful.

Couple of suggestions, make it output results at the end. the more data the better, I imagine hardware reviewers will like this little benchmark.

More dynamic lighting moments, for example some explosions here and there, or perhaps sparks from some wiring.

Because whilst it's beautiful in its on way, it's also quite sparse.

I sent along a small amount of money, enough for a coffee or beer.

Amazing work!

By pure ray tracing, you mean fully path traced (including the GI) and little to no rasterization?

Thank you very much! Also for the donation.

About "at the end", do you mean when you pass to control the character? In that case, final results remain at the screen. When you exit pressing escape, you get also the last benchmark result on the menu screen.

I thought about more dynamic moments too, at the beginning, but finally didn't add them because of some things, like I had no enough time during the weekend I had free time to work on it and whith the release of the new cards, and because I wanted to prevent little random things, that could vary the benchmark result (the explosions should have some random components, but also the sparks). Anyway, I love your idea, but I needed to decide then. It would be less boring, but simply add more effects to harm performance, which is quite under load, already. Right now, probably, I shouldn't make more changes, because people are already using the benchmark and showing their results. But I will kept it in mind. Maybe, if some reviewer are going to start testing it, make it more popular, and they tell me before reviewing, it could be a good moment to make new changes and make a new "beginning".

PS: I have tried writing some hardware webpages but usually with no replies. If you know someone, all help is welcome!

Thank you! Yeah, all lighting and effects are fully RT dynamic, except for the Common Settings, without GI and with Sky lighting backed, and the High Settings, with GI but still with the Skylight backed. Pro Settings has the Skylight dynamic. It's a little more explained at the itch.io project's page.

I bet it isn't. This is still Unreal Engine and the hybrid RT approach, just heavy with RT effects. RT Reflections, RT GI and RT shadows, I assume. @miguel1900, anything else?

Do you take feature requests? Especially if you'd like this to take off as a benchmark - batchs runs please.
Queue up tests with different settings with x amount of runs each, logging at least the results (if not in more details - min, max, avg, maybe frametimes, maybe monitoring data) :D
More details about what settings exactly are changed for High-Pro would be nice as well.

Thank you!

Already added to the table of scores.

Well, it's not "path traced", but it's "ray traced". You are totally right, simply adding the RT Sky on the Pro test. On Pro, there are no rasterization nor backed lighting at all. How would you define your hybrid term? (Maybe it's the correct term!)

Of course! Suggestions are totally welcome. I have already added (but not published yet) a looping mode, and it shows the number of current loop, but didn't thought to allow the user to fix a cretain loop number. About the rest, it could be interesting too! but a little time consuming. The more used it is, the more time I will dedicate.

Thanks again!

Large part of the scene is still done with rasterization and other more common methods. There are certain effects or buffers (or parts of them as with your example of Skybox lighting getting raytraced at higher settings) that are raytraced (as a general term, whether the actual algorithm/method used is pathtracing, some hybrid and/or the nice postprocessing like inevitable denoising) that are then composited together. Reflections, shadows, GI/AO are the main ones with UE as far as I remember.

UE does have some type of full pathtracing renderer but to the best of my knowledge that is essentially for reference renders, not real-time usage. From what I have seen or heard from its performance, this is absolutely definitely not what your benchmark uses :D

Edit:
UE RT overview in their own documentation:

Translucency is the one I forgot. GI and AO are separate as well.
