FurMark, TessMark, and other advanced OpenGL 2.1/3.2/4.0 benchmarks are now available via the Phoronix Test Suite and OpenBenchmarking.org.

In cooperation with Jerome of Geeks3D.com, the GPUTest cross-platform benchmark/tech-demo is now available via our open-source benchmarking software. GPUTest is designed as a GPU stress test that is supported on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X operating systems.

The GPUTest workload includes FurMark as a popular (previously Windows-only) OpenGL 2.1/3.2 stress test, TessMark as an OpenGL 4.0 tessellation test, GiMark as an OpenGL 3.3 Geometry Instancing test, PixMark Piano as an OpenGL 2.1/3.2 pixel shader test, and PixMark Volplosion as an OpenGL 2.1/3.2 pixel shader test.

The introduction of GPUTest to Phoronix Test Suite / OpenBenchmarking.org users is a nice complement to the dozens of other graphics/OpenGL test profiles already available via our industry-leading benchmarking framework. For those Linux users curious, however, the Mesa/Gallium3D drivers don't work with GPUTest 0.4.0 but in fact in my testing were quick to just throw GLX errors.

As with all of 326+ other test profiles, the GpuTest test profile is 100% automated, controlled, and fully-reproducible by the Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking software. For those unfamiliar with the test profile writing process, check out the test profile contents if you are curious about the integration bits.

On Linux-based systems, running any of these new OpenGL benchmarks is as easy as executing phoronix-test-suite benchmark gputest. For your convenience and some initial benchmarking numbers on OpenBenchmarking.org is 1305113-PTS-GPUTESTI20. To see how your system's GPUTest performance compares to these initial AMD Radeon Linux numbers (NVIDIA GeForce hardware had to be left out due to an unrelated driver issue on this system; also the Radeon HD 7850 results with this initial testing seems to suffer from driver oddities), simply run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1305113-PTS-GPUTESTI20 it's as easy as that. While GPUTest is supported on Windows and OS X too, the Phoronix Test Suite hooks there will be added soon.
