Now available, benchmark your graphic's cards Mesh Shading ability to see how well your GPU is able to utilize this Direct X 12 Ultimate feature - we expect games this year to start using Mesh Shaders

Some results below, ignore the Mesh Shader Off/On column, the important number is the % increase.

For RDNA 2 its around 550%
For Turing its around 400%
For Ampere its around 700%

IIRC RDNA is using a fallback method for this as the performance path was never completed - not that it would make it miraculously faster than Ampere if they did.

Mesh Shading may have some thing but this benchmark leaves a lot to be desired.

Mesh Shaders off, a 1660 Ti is faster than a 3090, seriously?

3D Mark have been putting out some real garbage lately.

As I said ignore those two columns, it's the % change that matters

Asus strix 3090 OC I go from 67fps to 618fps, an 817% improvement :eek:

Just remember this is a simple geometry test - you will never see a 800% framerate boost in games released with this feature, the performance jump affects geometry shading performance only which is just one aspect that goes into a single frame. I'd estimate real world performance improvement on your card will be about 20% extra FPS in games that support Mesh Shading[/QUOTE]

Unfortunately it is a % change that is based on a rotten foundation.

In normal use a 3090 is quicker than all the other NVidia cards in that table, the benchmark does not reflect that.

A joke of benchmark.
But it looks even better on AMD since they get like 1.5k% improvements. :D
So really it means the 3000 series from Nvidia and the 6000 series from AMD are much less powerful than the old series ( especially the AMD cards ) but then they can use new tricks to end up ahead in FPS. Especially Radeon cards are doing some magic, they increase the performance with 1.500%.

Without the new tricks there is no difference between the 1660 and the 3090...and the new Radeon cards are probably much worse than the 5000 series. :D

Must be with the latest driver released today. Not sure if mesh shaders will make a huge difference in games but a nice boost in performance for AMD cards bringing them back in line even though AMD says there are issues with the driver.

At least they reacted fast to this one but there is a problem with the test that is sure. 1660 can't be as good as the 3000 series and twice as good as the last Radeon cards at anything.
Also other older Nvidia cards are running Mesh shader off at 10 to 20% ahead of Ampere. That's BS.

Fair enough, well AMD's number changed with a new driver, perhapos Nvidia needs a new driver too
