SSE benchmark

I've created a small demo that could be very useful as an SSE benchmark: <A HREF="http://studwww.ugent.be/~ncapens/PhongCar.zip" target="_new">PhongCar.zip</A> (1.3 MB).

It compiles DirectX 9 pixel and vertex shaders to (mainly) SSE assembly code. So no DirectX 9 hardware is required, but SSE support is recommended (else it emulates the SSE instruction with FPU instructions).

I get 23 FPS on a Celeron 1.2 GHz...

  1. 33 fps on a barton 2500+ (not touching the mouse after startup, and waiting for the number to stabilize. I could tell you 115 as well looking at the yellow dot :)

  2. Nice program, i got 45fps.randy!

  3. Sweet! On what CPU is that?

    I get 32 FPS on my Pentium-M 1.4 GHz laptop.
  4. cool
    I get 48.9 to 49.1 when it first comes on .
    P4 2.6@ 3.41

    I aint signing nothing!!!
  5. I got four.
    Cpu is P4 2.8c, run in Win2k, 32bit color, 640 x 480:

    1.86ghz(underclock,133mhz x 14) 23fps.
    2.8ghz 33fps
    3.4ghz(240mhz x 14) 40fps

    Now disable HT:
    3.4ghz(240mhz X 14) 49fps
    Surprise !!

    Why??

    Why??

    Do you have several applications running in the background? With Hyper-Threading enabled, execution time is shared with the background applications. Without Hyper-Threading, it steals nearly all execution time so it performs better.

    The demo also doesn't use Hyper-Threading, yet. Once I've implemented it performance might be the same or higher than without Hyper-Threading. Unfortunately I don't have a Pentium 4 system. Any Intel sponsors around? :wink:
  7. I got 44.3 on an AXP Barton 3000+/400 @ 2.2GHz (3200+).

  8. HT on Win2K is generally not a great idea; it works best on WinXP...

  9. I get 41 FPS on XP 1800+ OC to 2.0 GHz (166 * 12)

  10. 45 on xp2500+ @ 2.15
  11. Am I the only one not overclocking? :wink:
  12. nah, but you're the only one with a celery ;)

    (no need to explain; tualatin celerons werent all that bad, we know).

    That's not my system, it's under repair;-)
  14. mine is done on a 2500@3200 (204*11 @ 1.7vcore)

  15. 37FPs with 1700+ @ 15x133 (2400+), 768MB PC2100.

  16. Looking at the other results mine seems high, ~50 FPS without moving the mouse.

    Am I supposed to see two superimposed, psychadelic car images?

    I'm running a Tbred XP1700+ @2.1 Ghz, 140 Mhz FSB, KT133A and SDRAM, Win 98SE, ACPI disabled.

    I get 29 FPS with SSE disabled.

    <b>Update</b>
    I found my problem. One of my games left my desktop at 16-bit color.

    Switching to 32-bit color everything looks good and I now get 37 FPS with SSE enabled.

  17. I get ~25.5 fps with "morgan" Duron 1.13 GHz (10 x 113), overclocked from 1 GHz (10 x 100)

    Rest of the system:

    ABIT NF7 v2.0 (nForce2 Ultra 400)
    2 x 256 MB PC2700 CL2.5 DDR working @ sync with FSB, 2.0-2-2-5, dual channel
    Windows XP Pro
