graphics card benchmarking system
     Fri, Sep 15 2017 | 9:00A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I could put together a system with the latest and greatest components, a custom water cooling loop, and the fanciest accessories available; the concept is appealing, however it will cost a small fortune to start with, and might even show diminished returns. The most expensive CPU or motherboard can be essential for certain tasks, but might not be optimal for gaming. Taking it all into consideration, I decided to share with you my latest GPU test build for Neoseeker. The objective was to put together a list of readily available components that are easy to work with, and where the resulting build can be replicated by our readers without much hassle."

Futuremark Ends Support for 3DMark + PCMark Vantage
     Tue, Mar 28 2017 | 12:56P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3DMark Vantage and PCMark Vantage support ends April 11
Futuremark's Vantage benchmarks were designed for Windows Vista, an operating system that is over 10 years old and which is now used by only 1.12% of Windows users according to StatCounter.
 
From April 11, 2017, 3DMark Vantage and PCMark Vantage will:
  • No longer be sold on our website.
  • No longer receive updates, (other than SystemInfo).
  • No longer be guaranteed to work with our online services.
  • No longer be eligible for customer support.
Alternatives to 3DMark Vantage
3DMark Vantage is a benchmark for DirectX 10, an API which is now two generations old. For benchmarking modern gaming systems, Futuremark recommend using the latest 3DMark benchmarks:
  • 3DMark Time Spy for DirectX 12 systems.
  • 3DMark Fire Strike for high performance DirectX 11 PCs.
  • 3DMark Sky Diver for DirectX 11 laptops and mid-range PCs.
Alternatives to PCMark Vantage
PCMark Vantage is a system benchmark for Windows Vista. If your PC is less than seven years old, you will get more relevant results by using a more recent version of PCMark. We recommend:
  • PCMark 7 for Windows 7
  • PCMark 8 for Windows 8
  • PCMark 10, coming soon, for Windows 10.
Legacy benchmarks are free to download
All of Futuremark's legacy benchmarks going back to 3DMark99 are available to download for free from Futuremark.com. Each benchmark comes with a key to unlock the Advanced Edition features. 3DMark Vantage and PCMark Vantage will be available for free from April 11, 2017, too.

VR-based tests going forward
     Mon, Mar 20 2017 | 4:00P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I already wrote an extensive preview of the tool and how it works during the announcement. I think it’s likely that many of you overlooked it with the noise from a new GPU, so I’m going to reproduce some of it here, with additions and updates. Everyone that attempts to understand the data we will be presenting in this story and all VR-based tests going forward should have a baseline understanding of the complexity of measuring VR games. Previous tools don’t tell the whole story, and even the part they do tell is often incomplete.

Posted by: STAFF
"Last month with AMD/GPUOpen's ROCm 1.4 release they delivered on OpenCL support, albeit for this initial release all of the code is not yet open-source. I tried out ROCm 1.4 with the currently supported GPUs to see how the OpenCL performance compares to just using the AMDGPU-PRO OpenCL implementation."

Posted by: STAFF
With 2016 soon drawing to an end, it's time for all of my year-end recaps now of Linux drivers that I have been doing for the past 12 years. Today are benchmarks of a wide assortment of AMD graphics cards on both R600g and RadeonSI Gallium3D drivers when using Mesa 13.1-dev + LLVM 4.0 SVN and the Linux 4.9 kernel for providing a bleeding-edge look at the open-source AMD Linux graphics performance across hardware going from the Radeon HD 4890 series all the way up through the RX 480 and R9 Fury hardware. Here's a fun look at the OpenGL driver performance across this range of GPUs."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
