    Default Half-Life 2 On The Phoronix Test Suite

    Phoronix: Half-Life 2 On The Phoronix Test Suite

    As some may have heard, via Twitter or in other communications, with Phoronix Test Suite 3.2-Grimstad we'll be ramping up several key areas of our open-source benchmarking software and with our collaborative testing platform, OpenBenchmarking.org, and our continuous integration system, Phoromatic. From this already, Half-Life 2 and 3DMark are running by the Phoronix Test Suite...

    Sounds really nice.
    Btw.. is there a way to see a bit more technical info from Half-life test results, like graphics card, version of drivers/xorg/wine etc.

    Support for the native Half-Life 2 will be added in 3 months time in sync with the official release of Steam for Linux.

    You Phoronix guys have some inside connections with Valve regarding Steam for Linux. Is this a hint that Steam for Linux is coming this June?

    hl2 is something nice as game , but i do not understand why you did not selected quake4 and prey in their linux build .
    that would promote the good teams and you will see bugs that will help with next games .

    may be you should also try to create hl.exe for linux for your benches , using the same "reverse engineering" that with nv_nouveau_drivers , using the linux dedicated files should make it easy to transplant this opengl game .
    may be that would accelerate hl2 linux too . did not macos use only opengl ?

    Hehe. OpenBenchmarking.org codenames are oil terminology and PTS codenames are currently Norwegian cities. So when a particular component is tied to the two, that leaves Norwegian oil fields from the always-beautiful Statoil And Ekofisk is one of the fields not far off from Stavanger.
