Valve's Voglperf Sees Its First Release
While the voglperf code has been public for some time within Git, the first initial release of Voglperf was tagged on Tuesday evening by a Valve developer.
Voglperf is a quick Valve tool for benchmarking Linux OpenGL games that comes down to just spewing frame information (FPS, frame time and min/max values) every second. That data can then be plotted, etc. Voglperf doesn't integrate any test automation but just dumps the frame data for whatever OpenGL game/application is loaded by it. Voglperf is supported on SteamOS and works with Steam on Linux.
In making it easier for packaging by distributions, the initial release of Voglperf happened on Tuesday. The initial release was tagged voglperf 0.1. Voglperf isn't to be confused with Valve's full-on VOGL OpenGL debugger for Linux game developers.
On a semi-related note, we added new Steam Linux benchmarks and have already run a new 15-way NVIDIA vs. AMD Source Engine GPU comparison on Ubuntu 14.04 Linux.
