    Phoronix: Finally, Team Fortress 2 Benchmarks For Phoronix!

    There's finally a Phoronix Test Suite test profile for being able to benchmark Valve's Team Fortress 2 on Steam in a (semi-) automated manner on Linux...

    You know, Source SDK Base has it's own benchmark tool built inside which is a controlled environment displaying the island of Lost Coast. Counter-Strike Source also has this with it's video stress tester. However, I guess they aren't as demanding as TF2 which is unplayable on my Radeon HD 7950 in Linux.

    Right on, good job Michael!

    This should show relative performance for all games that use the Source engine. Finally we can get some open source vs proprietary vs Windows benchmarks.

    Very good job! I look forward to future GPU comparisons on different distros, plus Windows/Mac.

    Default test not running / separate library

    I have steam and tf2 on fedora 19 but my game library (added through steam as second library) is on a separate ntfs partition.
    After downloading the testdemo, phoronix ties to run the benchmark but fails :

    TF2 isn't that demanding, there is something wrong with your setup. And L4D2 is more demanding.

    Unplayable?? What? I have the same card and I have been playing TF2 without problems ever since it was released for linux. I guess you are not using the Catalyst drivers....

    Very well phonorix, thank god you heard us.

    If CS:GO appear on steam, you may need to benchmark it too because graphics seems better.

    Wow, this was probably just a coincidence but, since I last nagged about the lack of TF2 benchmarks yesterday, I'm very happy to see this. With excitement I'm now looking forward to possible future benchmark results of different hardware (e.g. haswell vs. earlier intel integrated graphics, opensource vs proprietary drivers on discrete GPUs etc.)

    This is also the day I managed to purchase a Phoronix premium subscription.

    On your article you present many valid points as to why Steam games are hard to benchmark. But if

    is indeed correct, Lost Coast benchmarks would be perfectly sufficient if they are easier to produce.
