    No, I understand that just fine. The thing you don't seem to understand is that it's a meaningless point. It would be like me pointing out the sky is blue - yes, yes, that's true.


    It certainly doesn't for me, or 99% of other people. I'm willing to believe that different people have different purposes behind benchmarking, so i won't ignore this argument out of hand, but it seems very weak to me. I still don't understand what you think the purpose of benchmarking is, to be honest.


    It's certainly something.
    I'm not trying to say that benchmarks shouldnt be run in controlled environments with precompiled binaries distributed to the client using preset configurations that are easily repeatable. What I am trying to say is that I think it's a great idea to be able to benchmark my own binaries in my environment that I set up. If I have a game installed, I think it would be kick ass cool to be able to fire it up and benchmark it while I play through some of it.

    EDIT: And I'm damn sure I'm not alone in this desire... I think it could easily be done to have the mesa drivers report statistics during runtime, which could then be displayed using PTSs kick ass graphing abilities.

    EDIT2: Plus thermal sensors and load. Lets face it PTS is awesome.

      TF2. cl_showfps 2
      Done, all the statistics you want but without the BS you claim is needed. It won't matter how many games you play in TF2, your performance will not vary greatly at all. I get over 300+FPS in Windows at all times regardless of what is happening in the game.

          fps_max lets you set a custom frame limit in Source engine. Mine hovers around 350-450.
