EzBench, the Unreal Engine 5 benchmark with ray tracing and 8K textures

Unreal Engine 5 may be new to the video game market, but that has not stopped developers from creating a lot of interesting content using it over the past few weeks. Unreal Engine 5 is Epic Games' latest engine, and it aims to help developers deliver next-generation gaming experiences.

This month, a free Unreal Engine 5 Benchmarking Tool and Stress Test called EzBench has arrived on Steam, offering users a tool that will challenge any modern gaming PC and "make your RTX 3090 sweat". The tool utilises ray tracing with Unreal Engine 5's Lumen lighting system (though older GPUs like the GTX 1080 are supported), and features 8K textures. 

EzBench has high system requirements, with Nvidia's GTX 1080 being listed as the tool's minimum graphics card. This tool is designed to work with graphics cards that have 8GB of memory or more, and Intel Kaby Lake processors (or newer). EzBench is designed to be a "worst case scenario", so real Unreal Engine 5 games should be better optimised for today's PC hardware. Expect higher framerates in "optimised games.  

    This is a FREE Benchmarking tool with next generation technologies from Unreal Engine 5.
Test your computer versus 8K textures, Cinematic quality assets and raytracing.

This tool is a stress test and does represent a worst case scenario. You should expect higher frame rates in optimized games.

Below is a video that showcases EzBench in action. 

EzBench is now available for free on Steam as a 20GB download.

I'll report back, i'm expecting low fps

Score 22130, avg 23fps it was alright but i kinda expected something more intresting to happen in the benchmark

The level of detail in the lighting is the main thing i'd say is in the benchmark that looks good, mainly on the rocks lots of shadow lighting happening.Quote
