"For those that want to run the tests themselves with
their own drivers and hardware, we also have provided instructions
on how you can easily do so using the Phoronix Test Suite 2.4
"Lenvik" development build -- it is irresistibly easy.
"For this round of quick testing we were using an Intel Core 2
Duo E8400 processor clocked at 3.86GHz and then on the graphics
side was a GeForce 8600GTS 256MB graphics card. We were running
Ubuntu Linux with the NVIDIA 195.22 display driver, which is
currently in beta. We had ran our set of tests using no
anti-aliasing, 4x anti-aliasing using multi-sampling, 8x AA using
4x multi-sampling anti-aliasing and 4x coverage sample
anti-aliasing, and then 16x AA using 8x MSAA and 8x CSAA. To start
with, below are the average frame-rates for this NVIDIA setup at
the different AA levels. This testing was all done using a Git
version of Phoronix Test Suite 2.4. The graph below and then the
Nexuiz image quality tests were all done by simply running
phoronix-test-suite benchmark nexuiz nexuiz-iqc at each of the
anti-aliasing levels that were overridden by the NVIDIA Linux
driver and we let our software take care of the rest."
