Starting with the Vulkan benchmark, it will be released onto both the Windows and Android versions of 3DMark. This will allow people to easily compare laptops and PCs against tablets and smartphones in Vulkan.

Next up, we have DX12 - which TPU tease as "Its target hardware is notebook graphics and entry-mainstream graphics cards. It will be to 'Time Spy' what 'Sky Diver' is to 'Fire Strike'".
