Well, Furmark works, even with fglrx (release 8.5 to be precise), but it also requires some user interaction before the test begins.
Most DX based benchmarks I've seen require some sort of user interaction, so finding a "point 'n' click" one will be hard. I think the only option in this case would be timedemos in commercial games. Anyone know of any freely available demos for Windows games that can be used for such ends?

But it's way too easy for not doing it. I just played around a bit and found out replacing the strings ./warsow.i386 or ./warsow.x86_64 in ~/.phoronix-test-suite/installed-tests/warsow/warsow with wine warsow_x86.exe is enough to make the warsow test to use wine. It reports 0.00 FPS thought, but this seems to be a problem with pts, the test and/or my setup, since this also happens when using the linux-binaries.

See, that's the problem. I can't push in tests if it requires interaction like that.
