RandomControl introduced ArionBench, a new benchmark that promises to be the most intensive hybrid CPU and CUDA benchmarking tool for Windows.
ArionBench is based on Arion Technology, our proprietary physically-based light simulation engine.
It can certainly put your hardware under stress like no other benchmarking tool. But, very remarkably, ArionBench is not an artificial benchmarking solution, but a piece of software based on a real-world commercial GPU-accelerated rendering product.
We released ArionBench just a few days ago and some of our users have posted their results on our site already. These results are highly valuable to see how different hardware architectures and setups compare to each other, and to help people make a decision on their next hardware purchase.
ArionBench can selectively test your graphic(s) card(s), your CPU(s) or all your devices at once, to give you an overview of your computer's rendering performance.
Note: A CUDA-capable GPU is required in order to run the CUDA hardware and hybrid benchmarks.
You can download it over here, the software is available for free but you need to sign in first. Because this test requires CUDA support, it only works with certain NVIDIA cards, you can check compatibility at this page.
