    As well as Windows 7 runs.

      I am just testing against your results, can take some time. But did you notice that pts uses: "-sound_app null", so you would need to use pts on win too as usually you would test with sound enabled the normal way.

        Has anyone tried forcing tessellation on HD3xxx or HD4xxx cards? On the windows RC version it was possible to enable tessellation when using the OpenGL backend with those cards according to some comments on another forum.

            You have to use DX11.

              You can enable it by editing the .cfg file in the data directory. It really killed my cards performance with cat 10.1 though, which might be the "bug" mentioned by Micheal.

                Ya I notice that. I was planning on using PTS on win.

                  @Raven3x7

                  You are right, it is possible to enable it:
                  Code:
                  <item name="gl_render_use_amd_vertex_shader_tessellator" type="int">1</item>
                  The framerate drop ist just extreme from 8 to below 1

                        At least 6x faster than my test system

                          It actually runs on my ancient X1900XT using fglrx 9.3... now that's kewl (~12fps @ 1280x1024). Ofc it would be even better if it'd run on the Gallium3d-driver. :>

                          Interesting. The linux-version seems to be slower on average, but the min-fps are actually twice as high as on windows.

                            The thread title is a bit ironic.

                              SLI Benchmarks with 285 GTX

                              Hi all, I've done some benchmarking to see whether SLI is useful with this benchmark. Short answer: no. Actually alternate frame rendering produces a HUGE performance drop, by a factor of 3 or 4; with split frame rendering performance is more or less the same as single-card rendering.
                              Benchmarks results below:
                              Single-card, no AntiAliasing (all other options at max)
                              Single-card, 8x AntiAliasing (all other options at max)
                              Split-frame rendering, no AntiAliasing (all other options at max)
                              Split-frame rendering, 8x AntiAliasing (all other options at max)

                              I didn't even try to benchmark AFR as it was way too slow and produced distortions.
                              Conclusion: the 285 GTX seems a bit struggling with this benchmark, and SLI is once more useless.

                                I can't even run the Unigine demo:

                                Code:

                                I'm using arch linux though.
