Thanks for the OSS APU benchmarks.
I do have a few suggestions though,
- Compare Intel and AMD APUs. I'd really like to see them benchmarked side by side with open drivers.
- OpenCL and AMD's HSA architecture will become more and more important in the near future so we need to see OpenCL testing baked into new benchmarks. I bring this up in this thread due to OpenCL being very GPU related. Oh I do realize that open source wise support is lagging so testing with closed source drivers should be a goal,too.
- While testing against discreet cards is nice, it would be nice to have some APU context here. That is result from a previous generation APU should be in the graphs.
- non gaming OpenGL performance should be addressed to a greater extent! Games are nice but not everybody these days is considering APUs for gaming.
The idea here is that integrated GPUs are becoming good enough for many of us to consider these days. For years I dismissed integrated GPUs out of hand but we are certainly at the tipping point right now. Effectively they are processors that are now good enough. Of course good enough depends upon what you want to do with the machine, in this case "engineering" apps are a part of my interests.
