CLBenchmark: New OpenCL Benchmark for Windows (Tested: HD 7970 vs GTX 680)

CLBenchmark - OpenCL benchmark

CLBenchmark is a new OpenCL 1.1 benchmark for Windows (I don’t know if other OSes like Linux or MacOSX are or will be supported). CLBenchmark includes 17 different OpenCL tests. You can run them all or individually.

CLBenchmark 1.1 Desktop Edition is an easy-to-use tool for comparing the computational performance of different platforms. It offers an unbiased way of testing and comparing the performance of implementations of OpenCL 1.1, a royalty-free standard for heterogenous parallel programming.

CLBenchmark compares the strengths and weaknesses of different hardware architectures such as CPUs, GPUs and APUs. The test results are listed in a transparent and public OpenCL performance database.

CLBenchmark 1.1 Desktop Edition supports any standard-compliant OpenCL 1.1 implementation and it is compatible with every major vendor’s solution.

I quickly tested it with a Radeon HD 7970 and a GeForce GTX 680… But I’m sure you already know the result ;)
