graphics benchmark details
I am trying to understand how the phoronix-test-suite works when I benchmark the graphics.
I am running a ut2004-demo on my radeon HD 4550. I was trying to find out whether there should be a difference after turning my vsync on/off (aticonfig --vs on/off)
Monitor Refresh Rate : 60FPS
The performance results were not exactly identical, but near around the same by which I mean at max I got a difference of +/- 1 FPS at all the different resolutions, I checked.
So, I have a simple question, shouldn't changing the vsync option change the game FPS ?
or since I am just running a prerecorded workload & not playing, this will not affect my FPS.
I used to believe that the physics calculation etc are only handled by cpu, not gpu, is this assumption wrong ? so therefore should/shouldn't I expect a change in game FPS ?
Can anyone help me understand this ? Since I know there is something wrong with my explanation
