Running Some New Benchmarks On The GTX 1080 (Octane Render, OpenCL)

Several new benchmarks were added today to the Phoronix Test Suite / and with their GPU-accelerated focus of the new tests, I couldn't help but run them on the mighty powerful GeForce GTX 1080 and friends.

From the GeForce GTX 1080 along with the GTX TITAN X, GTX 980 Ti, GTX 980, GTX 780 Ti, and GTX 680 I ran these new benchmarks to complement my GTX 1080 Pascal Linux benchmarks from over the weekend. The new tests include OctaneBench, FinanceBench, and MixBench.

OctaneBench is a test of Octane Render and is now available for benchmarking in an automated manner via the Phoronix Test Suite... Though sadly this binary blob doesn't yet work on the GTX 1080 as it's reported as an undetected GPU! But I included the results anyhow for the other GPUs in case you want to compare your numbers when running phoronix-test-suite benchmark octanebench.

MixBench is a hybrid GPU benchmarking tool with support for CUDA and HIP too, but just for this initial test profile it's only wired in for OpenCL.

Lastly for the new test profiles today is FinanceBench with the OpenCL implementations being initially what's hooked up.

You can run these benchmarks on your OpenCL-enabled system via phoronix-test-suite benchmark octanebench mixbench financebench to carry them out in a fully-automated and standardized manner. More details on the tests via the pages.
