Partly out of curiosity and partly the desire to report some useful data to Radeon R300 free drivers development project I am looking for some benchmark utilities for graphics cards, but can be for other things too. Smiling

Any suggestions? Smiling

On the page R330 Benchmark

On the page R330 Benchmark in the DRI Wiki it mentions Quake 3 as a benchmark.
Since it's not a free game I'd suggest trying some free games that offer displaying the FPS, like VDrift.

I think games are a better benchmark than GLXGears because they work harder on the GPU.

Well Open Arena comes to

Well Open Arena comes to mind then. I just need to see how to enable FPS showing in it. Nexuiz would probably be even better. Pity it segfaults on my machine as soon as I start walking around, picking up a weapon or start shooting. :\

About glxgears, the fact that there exist an option for it that goes like this; -iacknowledgethatthistoolisnotabenchmark proves just how much X.org hackers care to tell you that glxgears is NOT a benchmark. Eye It has FPS disabled by default and the way to get it to show is either by the above option (it really works) or simply -printfps. Smiling
