We use the built-in benchmark of Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation, which runs an automatic play-through scene in the game. We've selected the CPU-intensive benchmark option and used High settings with MSAA disabled, all of which are located in the game's video options and benchmark menus. On startup, we also select the DirectX 12 version, which is only available to use in Windows 10. We use a 30-second Fraps benchmark to obtain the minimum and average frame rate during the benchmark, starting the recording as the benchmark begins.
Time Spy is a DirectX 12 benchmark that runs at 1440p. It is designed to properly utilise the advantages of the DirectX 12 API. The benchmark is available for free, but you'll need to pay to change any of the settings, including the resolution. We use the default settings, so you should easily be able to compare your score.
