The new version of ComputeMark is available. ComputeMark is a GPU computing benchmark based on Microsoft DirectX 11 DirectCompute technology. This new version brings new DirectCompute-based demos and 3 presets (normal, complex and extreme).

You can download the latest version here:

Okaaayyy, let’s do a quick test…

– CPU: Core i7 960 (default clocks)
– RAM: 4GB DDR3 corsair dominator 1600MHz
– Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD5
– Win7 64-bit
– PSU: Antex TPQ 850W
– Display drivers: R257.15 (NVIDIA) and Catalyst 10.5 (ATI)

GeForce GTX 480

– 1024×600 windowed

  • Normal mode: 2932
  • Complex mode: 1693
  • Extreme mode: crash, crash and CRASH!

– 1920×1080 fullscreen

  • Normal mode: 1291
  • Extreme mode: re-crash…

I also tested with two GTX 480 in SLI but SLI mode is not supported (not in profiles)…

Radeon HD 5870

– 1024×600 windowed

  • Normal mode: 3229
  • Complex mode: 1855
  • Extreme mode: 307

– 1920×1080 fullscreen

  • Normal mode: 1549
  • Extreme mode: 238

    People just have a hard time to grasp that GTX4xx series is an epic failure. And bringing their GPGPU marketing bollocks onto an equal fairground (meaning Open APIs not closed ones) it shows it even more obviously.

    Great program Robert. I’m really happy to see two algorithm for the Fluid simulation.

    btw … anyone know why are the Fermi is so slow in 3d texturing?

  3. Robert Varga

    Zlat, they have said that they know that it’s a problem on Fermi, and that they “have to sort it out (3d texture performance)”.

    They didn’t wrote if they are speaking about Fermi or Fermi 2.

    Btw now they are working on SLI profile. Also I don’t know when it will be ready, but I will place some info on the computemark homepage when they will give me some new info.
