1 – GpuTest 0.6.0 Release Highlights
A new version of GpuTest is available. GpuTest 0.6.0 is essentially a maintenance release and brings the supports of OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), the latest iteration of Apple’s operating system for desktops.
OS X 10.9 Mavericks with OpenGL 4 support
Minor changes have been added on the user graphical interface for Windows and OS X. And good news for Linux users: a user graphical interface is now available. Ok it’s not a master piece but it works perfectly. I coded it in Python using Tkinter:
FurMark launched from the Tkinter GUI for Linux
To launch the interface, just double click on the gputest_gui.py (it has the executable permission). Otherwise open a terminal in GpuTest folder and type:
$ python gputest_gui.py
Depending on the state of your distro, maybe you will need to install the python-tk package:
$ sudo apt-get install python-tk
Do not hesitate to improve this interface and send me your work. I will add it in GpuTest (with your credits!).
In the Windows version, I added some information in the screen including GPU monitoring. You can enable the OSI (On Screen Info) in the GUI or via the command line:
$ GpuTest.exe /display_info
