GpuTest new tests: Piano and Volplosion
1 – GpuTest 0.3.0 Overview
A new version of GpuTest, Geeks3D’s cross platform OpenGL benchmarking utility for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, is available. GpuTest 0.3.0 adds two new 3D demos: PixMark Piano and PixMark Volplosion. Both demos are heavy pixel shader tests:
- PixMark Piano: this test is based on ShaderToy Piano pixel shader by iq. This is a fully procedural raymarched scene. You can find the complete source code and WebGL demo here: shadertoy.com/view/ldl3zN.
- PixMark Volplosion: this test is based on a GLSL Sandbox shader by Simon Green (NVIDIA).
This is a VOLumic exPLOSION shader so you can now understand the name of this test. You can find the source code here: glsl.heroku.com/e#2945.1.
GpuTest 0.3.0 includes five 3D tests:
- FurMark: OpenGL 3.2 GPU burn-in test, works on Windows, OSX and Linux.
- TessMark: OpenGL 4.0 tessellation test, works on Windows, and Linux. OSX does not support OpenGL 4.
- GiMark: OpenGL 3.3 geometry instancing test, works on Windows, OSX and Linux.
- PixMark Piano: OpenGL 3.2 pixel shader test, works on Windows, OSX and Linux.
- PixMark Volplosion: OpenGL 3.2 pixel shader test, works on Windows, OSX and Linux.
GpuTest has an user interface for Windows and OSX:
You can also launch GpuTest from the command line (this is the method for Linux). A batch file
is provided that shows the various command line options.

nice job yet again JeGX 🙂
results of my GTX470..
Piano 337 points (6FPS)
Volplosion 1086 points (18FPS)
Ok for a 470, did u get the temps?
@WacKEDmaN: What’s your resolution??? Windowed or fullscreen?? Did your GTX 470 run overclock!? :S
gtx 650 ti, 1280*1024,fullscreen, no AA:
piano: 578 (9fps)
volplosion: 1284 (21fps)
not working with ubuntu 12.04
@serg: could you check the graphics driver? With latest R319 or FGLRX, GpuTest runs fine. For other GPUs (Intel) I don’t know.
Piano crashes on MP 4,1, 10.8.3, flashed 7950.
Works with GTX285 though.
Volplosion runs on both cards, but bench results are exactly that same (19 FPS).
Tried windowed or fullscreen, no AA.
If you’re interested, I’ll send you Piano crash log. Drop me an e-mail where to send it if so.
@blacksheep: is there something interesting in GpuTest log file (generated in the root of your home folder: _geeks3d_gputest_log.txt) like a shader error?
@JeGX: Nope, no errors. Crash log points on AMDRadeonX4000GLDriver IMO.
Here it is: http://www73.zippyshare.com/v/90550700/file.html
Did some further testing recently.
In 7950 case it was driver crash.
Piano and Volplosion runs on 5870 and 5770 without issues on the same machine and OS version.
5870 @1920×1200, no AA
Piano – 1058 pts, FPS 17
Volplosion – 1799 pts, FPS 29
5770 scores aren’t worth mentioning.
Hopefully 10.8.4 will bring better drivers for 7xxx series.
GpuTest 0.4.0 has been released, give it a try and let me know about the HD 7950 crash.
