Software News   Software News : Introducing GfxBench2D
   posted by Hans on 20-Jun-2011 22:41:14 (3153 reads)
I am pleased to announce the first release of GfxBench2D.

GfxBench2D is:
- A benchmarking tool for 2D graphics (download)
- A web-app for displaying results uploaded by the benchmarking tool
- An opportunity to see some real data on graphics card performance for a wide range of graphics cards and systems

System Requirements (for the benchmarking tool):
- AmigaOS 4.x
- A truecolour capable graphics card (minimum 16-bit)

Some interesting results are already available. For example, the Radeon X1950 pro is the current king of 2D. It is the last high performance card to include a dedicated 2D blitter unit, and it shows. Some motivation for upgrading to a PCI-express capable AmigaOS machine can be found here and here. Or maybe you might like to compare a Radeon (Mobility) 4300 PCIe card to a Radeon HD 4350 PCI in an A1-XE.

Those X1950 results are amazing. Look at the WritePixelArray performance - over 700MB/s - wow!

I presume DMA is working in this case.

The nice thing is that the X1950 cards aren't expensive - lots to choose from on eBay.

Is that right:

AmigaOS - Update 3 ?

Sometimes we give people a lot of credit just because they’re writing nice sentences even if it isn’t adding up to much.

There are no driver for that gfxcard for us users with update 2 so probably a beta tester or developer.

And the slowest GFX chip of all times is the one that ships on the SAM460ex board!

Better to put a minimig onboard to do the GFX output.... ??

I think you read it wrong, on board GFX of SAM460 runs in higher resolution than some other tested cards (eg. CVisionPPC).
