Tests I'm most interested in:
OpenCL tests comparing GTX580/GTX680, Radeon 68xx/69xx/79xx.
Power/idle usage are also useful. I don't care as much about the max graphics performance, as I'm sure it's probably fine, but the GPU compute speed interests me greatly.
I tip on AlienArena and Xonotic.
OpenArena is missing some essential finacial things and is not developed since 2010.
Also, phoronix-test-suite is apparently capable to frag! Is this a new "feature"?

The test profile is already available for those who want: http://openbenchmarking.org/test/pts/openarena-1.5.0
why not integrate a benchmark based on the TA-Spring engine?
sure we know this is "work" but maybe just ask for donation to do this?
Iím sure you will get more readers because TA-Spring engine is used by many gamers world wide.
and with high settings you really need fast hardware.
Because as far as I know there still is no proper automated support for handling it within the Spring engine compared to other open-source engines. And I don't see enough donations coming in for it to be worthwhile to add support to the Spring engine myself.

I am one of the Alien Arena developers and would be happy to add any features needed to help support benchmarking. Just putting that out there.
I brought it up with John Diamond before but he didn't seem interested to do anything about it after a few emails... This was probably two or three years ago though. If you could implement a timed demo mode similar to the idTech titles, etc that would be terrific! I think there may have been in the code in CRX at one point but was broken.
