CPU-Z – Graphics – Performance level: 3D Applications
TimeCube is an OpenGL demo that renders a small rotating cube, displaying the current date and time, directly on your desktop. Common effects are used: specular highlights (trop fort les gars!!!!), realtime bump mapping (le truc qui tue!!!) and cube map reflections (là ça explose tout!).

The demo does not eat cpu cycles so you can leave it runing somewhere in your desktop….
