GpuTest 0.3.0: Cross Platform OpenGL Benchmark for Windows, OS X and Linux Released



GpuTest 0.3.0: Cross Platform OpenGL Benchmark for Windows, OS X and Linux
GpuTest new tests: Piano and Volplosion



1 – GpuTest 0.3.0 Overview

A new version of GpuTest, Geeks3D’s cross platform OpenGL benchmarking utility for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, is available. GpuTest 0.3.0 adds two new 3D demos: PixMark Piano and PixMark Volplosion. Both demos are heavy pixel shader tests:

  • PixMark Piano: this test is based on ShaderToy Piano pixel shader by iq. This is a fully procedural raymarched scene. You can find the complete source code and WebGL demo here: shadertoy.com/view/ldl3zN.

  • PixMark Volplosion: this test is based on a GLSL Sandbox shader by Simon Green (NVIDIA).
    This is a VOLumic exPLOSION shader so you can now understand the name of this test. You can find the source code here: glsl.heroku.com/e#2945.1.
