(Tested) Catzilla: OpenGL and Direct3D PC Benchmark



Catzilla: OpenGL and Direct3D PC Benchmark



Announced few months ago, Catzilla has been released yesterday in beta version.

Catzilla is an OpenGL 4 and Direct3D 11 graphics benchmark for Windows and has been developped by Plastic, a Polish demogroup.

You can download the 500MB installer from this page.

There are several presets according to your hardware configuration: Kitty (1024×576), Cat (1280×720), Tiger (1920×1080) and Catzilla (2560×1440). I tested the Tiger preset (on this testbed):

Tiger preset, Direct3D 11:

8154 points – EVGA GTX 680, R310.70 whql
7007 points – MSI HD 7970, Cat12.11 beta11
6569 points – MSI GTX 660 Hawk, R310.70 whql
5460 points – Sapphire HD 6970, Cat12.11 beta11
5402 points – EVGA GTX 580, R310.70 whql
4474 points – EVGA GTX 480, R310.70 whql

Tiger preset, OpenGL:

7429 points – EVGA GTX 680, R310.70 whql
5521 points – MSI GTX 660 Hawk, R310.70 whql
5333 points – EVGA GTX 580, R310.70 whql
5091 points – MSI HD 7970, Cat12.11 beta11
4337 points – EVGA GTX 480, R310.70 whql
0 points – Sapphire HD 6970, Cat12.11 beta11 -> crash at startup



I was unable to test the Radeon HD 6970 in OpenGL because of a crash at the loading of Catzilla scene data. But there was no problem with the HD 7970.

Here are some screenshots of Catzilla benchmark:

Catzilla uses a parallel graphics engine that takes advantage of multi-core CPUs. Here is the load of an Intel Sandy Bridge CPU running Catzilla (Tiger settings):

    interested if OpenGL mode Works in Intel HD4000
    and also how DX vs OGL perf hit on Intel GPUs to see how optimzed are their stacks..
    also related is a new Haswell GPU driver leaked on web 15.2885 which supposedly OpenGL 4.2 can you test it also?

    I got 4839 at tiger with DX 11 running Win 7 x64 SP1 with i5-2500K@stock and eVGA GTX 480@reference-stock (310.70WHQL HQ):
    HW: 4791
    Physics: 473
    Fur: 347
    Fluid: 278
    Raymarch: 103
    Loading time: 11017

    My GTX 480 is better than your same GPU because my i5-2500K is faster than your Q9xxx. 😀

    hd 7870 @ 1200/1375 & fx 8150 @ 4.2GHz(4C/4T mode)

    dx11:tiger = 7200 points
    Opengl:tiger = 6025 points

    dx11:tiger is 12000 points now, why? Every benchmark gives different value.
