UL Solutions has introduced 3DMark Steel Nomad – an upcoming heavy non-ray tracing benchmark, a successor to 3DMark Time Spy.  

Time Spy has been around for over 7 years, and the company decided it was time for something new. Steel Nomad is supposed to be its most demanding non-ray tracing benchmark, which will support Windows running DirectX 12, macOS and iOS using Metal, Android using Vulkan, and Linux using Vulkan.

UL shared some screenshots as a teaser for how the benchmark will test your system but didn't provide the exact structure or functionality.

"To celebrate 3DMark's 25th year, the scene will feature some callbacks to many of our previous benchmarks," the company said in a press release (via TechPowerUp). "We hope you have fun finding them all!"

UL has been shipping 3DMark for 25 years now, the software is meant to determine the performance of a computer's 3D rendering and CPU capabilities. The company doesn't plan to stop producing new solutions and testing the most power-hungry systems any time soon, it seems.
