Going Beyond Just Measuring Frame Rates

“It has already been shared that Windows support is coming, but
there are other huge features coming too as soon as Q1’2010. Up to
this point, most of the tests and the design of pts-core (the
Phoronix Test Suite engine) have been focused on quantitative
benchmarks with many of the tests spitting out a frame-rate, time,
or some other measurement. However, now being supported in the
Phoronix Test Suite is the ability to produce abstract results,
such as screenshots used for image quality comparisons. The
Phoronix Test Suite can now track the image quality of various test
profiles (such as OpenGL games) across hardware configurations,
drivers, and more. All of this is still leveraged upon the existing
Phoronix Test Suite framework and our design philosophies so that
even image quality comparisons can be carried out autonomously, the
ability to compare many results side-by-side, support for carrying
out these tests remotely via Phoromatic, and the ability to share
your abstract results with others via Phoronix Global.”
