There's been a number of new and updated benchmarks appearing on OpenBenchmarking.org
for use by the Phoronix Test Suite
Recently added for Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking was the Counter-Strike: Source test
that was used in the 13-way AMD Source Engine Linux comparison
and Intel Haswell Linux Valve game benchmarks
. The test will also be used in the Radeon R9 290 Linux review
and all the new NVIDIA Linux benchmarks
Besides CS:S, last night and in prior days have been a lot more activity:
- The Phoronix Test Suite has supported the POV-Ray ray-tracer for years, using the stable 3.6 release. Recently, POV-Ray 3.7 was finally released as stable! POV-Ray makes the industry-leading ray-tracer now multi-threaded along with a horde of other improvements. The povray test profile
has now been updated to utilize version 3.7.0.
- The Parboil
test profile has been around for a while, but only using the OpenMP test cases. With work I did yesterday, the more demanding workloads in there that have OpenCL support are now optionally supported for more GPGPU benchmarking.
was added yesterday as another new OpenCL benchmark. This has been part of my recent OpenCL benchmarking push
now that more open-source driver implementations are catching up in their GPGPU support and more desktop software is supporting OpenCL
- The HPC Challenge
test profile continues to be refined and is getting into quite good shape.
A list of all official tests that can be run via the Phoronix Test Suite can be found via this OpenBenchmarking.org listing
. If there's a test you would like to see that's not currently available, consider contacting PTS Commercial
. If you're just a community member, tweet @MichaelLarabel
as lots of these tests just come about in my spare time when finding interesting new workloads that make good automated benchmarks. You can also construct your own test profile and new contributions are happy accepted; see test profile contents examples like x264
or Team Fortress 2
