So, after putting it off for a bit I finally rejigged the program so that it's now a full functional stand alone test program (well, 2 infact).
This is where your help would be appricated [smile]
While I can just run the tests on my machine (and indeed, will be), I'd like some more results to play with; both GPU and CPU wise.
So, if you are feeling kind and have a reasonable period of time spare on your machine where it is doing NOTHING else I'd appricate any results you could send me [smile]
The 'nothing' is important as I'd rather not have the CPU results skewed by another application being swapped in; this program does not yeild! It tries to take all the CPU time for it's self and given how intensive it is it's with good reason.
The test package can be downloaded here.
If you don't have VS05 installed and thus lack the DLL runtimes they can be downloaded from MS here.
As the project uses OpenMP I had to use the DLL runtime, no way around it [sad]
In the zip file you'll find two programs and the shaders;
The one marked 'full screen' is the one I would prefer you to run, however if it doesn't work (a problem I've had on Vista, it might not exist on XP however) then the other version, which runs in a window can be used instead.
Really make sure you have nothing important running when you run the fullscreen version. It let me alt+F4 and kill it when it locked for me on Vista but ya know.. better safe than sorry[smile]
One you run it it's a matter of sit back and wait, the program will create a number of text files with the results in.
Once it exits if you could email me the txt files as attachments and tell me the speed/type of your CPU and what version of windows you it on.
The details.txt file holds some basic information about the OpenGL driver used.
Also, if you could tell me what name you want to appear under in the 'thanks' section of final write up it would be handy as well [grin]
My email address is email@example.com and if you could give it the subject 'TLM Results' so that I can spot it and not delete as spam it would be appriated [smile]
GPUs I'm after :
- G80 based
Any problems drop me an email/comment/pm and I'll get back to you.
