Ashes of the Singularity gave us an early peek at how AMD and Nvidia's current GPUs are shaping up in Microsoft's latest API when we checked out the upcoming DX12 real-time strategy title last November. Back then our focus was primarily on DX11 vs. DX12 performance with Nvidia's Maxwell and AMD's GCN 1.2 architectures.
Although the game still doesn't have an official release date, we know Stardock has been hard at work as shown by the cool new features in its Ashes of the Singularity benchmark 2.0. The most notable of them is 'explicit multi-adapter' (EMA), DirectX 12's multi-GPU technology, which gives game developers precise control over the workloads of their engine and direct control over the resources offered by each GPU in a system.
Among other things, this enables support for both AMD and Nvidia GPUs in the same system, meaning it is possible to pair a GeForce GTX 980 Ti with a Radeon R9 Fury X for example. This mind blowing feature is what we will be focusing on today.
