Phoronix: Counter-Strike: Source Linux GPU Benchmarks
Last week I provided some new NVIDIA GeForce Team Fortress 2 benchmarks for Valve's popular Team Fortress 2 game and those Linux benchmark results were followed by 9-Way AMD Radeon Linux results for this Source Engine game. Now for starting off a new week is just not new benchmark results but a Counter-Strike: Source test profile for benchmarking...
The 9800GT results for TF2 were really strange, and this seems to confirm it: at 1080p the 9800GT is doing 110fps while the GTX650 is doing 155fps; with TF2 we had 15fps vs 108fps, which seems to be a bit too much, and it's far from what I see with my own 9800GT.
I can't test (precisely test starts, but I see CS without textures) CS Source via phoronix test suite on Fedora 20 64 bit. I think, I know reason/cause for this. I am using Intel GPU and of course open source drivers. When I wanted to play CS, I must type in terminal emulator:
And when I type it, everything is ok. So, could you Michael Larabel try to automaticaly export force_s3tc_enable=true when test starts? It is patented technology in some countries, so maybe a little warning to user of phoronix-test-suite and question will be safer from legal point of view, I think.
