UL Benchmarks has stated that the benchmark will be coming to Steam later this year and teased it with two images, both of which are a work in progress and do not represent the target quality of the final product. With that said, the image quality is insane and you can already tell where the RT & Real-Time GI effects are being implemented on the futuristic bike. The benchmark will align with the next-gen GPU launches perfectly.
