vkmark and glmark2
lucinos commented on 17 February 2019 at 9:14 am UTC

I was searching for a good vulkan benchmark and I found vkmark. This and glmark2 are very nice benchmark, and seem to me much more practical than other benchmarks based on closed source engines.

On Arch I just installed vkmark-git and glmark2-git from AUR.

So I am doing the start by posting my results

For my desktop (RX 560 4GB)

WoOW this is as useful as glxgears
results vary from run to run like crazy, gpu isn't even 100% (mostly around 80-90%) load and it doesnt even spin up the fans.

hmm, it looks like these opensource benchmarks are not doing well with nvidia ...

I do not have an nvidia to test.

lucinoshmm, it looks like these opensource benchmarks are not doing well with nvidia ...

I do not have an nvidia to test.

i think its because of compositing. It somehow deactivated on the second run, i can replicate the results when enabling/disabling compositing.

still those framerates are quite useless to compare to real life gaming
