Add Port Royal to the Gpu Benchmarks?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I just wanted to ask why Port Royal is not listet in the 3dmark benchmark list?

I am just wondering because its a frequent benchmark with really much attention from Pro overcklockers like @Luumi who broke the 13 record or @Splave who held the WR with his Titan for a long time. Also Kingping and Steponz gave the benchmark quite the attention with their livestreams.

I thought it would be nive if Port Royal would be addet to the list of benchmarks.

The one who can develop hwbot does not have the time or interest to do so. So hwbot is stuck.

It's not just a missing 3d benchmark. The whole list of benchmarks is so outdated it is getting rediculus. I think 75% of all benchmarks are really all about single or dual threaded cpu performance. How relevant is that today? And then there is that thing that the most interesting platform in 20 years is not even possible to bench in a legit way by mainstream users...

Because you can easily hack lod to work and get a valid result. We need more security before we add more benches.

Lod is fixed in newest versions

Oh you tried?

I checked the only way I know how, maybe there are more ways.

As the new 3DMarks are separated in workloads, where each test and sometimes subtest got their own executable, it's necessary to check the LOD Bias setting via NVAPI before (or during) each run inside the workload executable. You can't change it in between as far as I'm aware. As soon as the executable is loaded, the NVIDIA driver settings seem to be locked it.

There might be some way with releasing and reinitializing the necessary Direct3D interfaces, but that would be a lot of work. And as soon as you can do something like that, it's a lot easier to just piggyback the settings of the workload, a plain JSON passed to the workload executable as a "locked" file. That was the only way I've found to fuck with LOD in the new 3DMarks.

To say something ontopic as well: It has to be considered, that points in Port Royale are currently rather expensive. I heard that @Splave sold a testicle to compete with the YouTubers. They now call him the Lance Armstrong of overclocking, cause he's still going strong with one nut. Might be an urban legend though.

port royal may be expensive to compete in, but then again all global pts are. Would be nice to have the option to get some pts for it, even if just hw pts. 1080ti can run it, although poorly. Raytracing on pascal seems to be about like dx12 on thermi.

Well I hope that Port Royal will be added soon. I think that is a quite important benchmark because it's designed to measure the power of a new Gpu architecture generation. 

Also I am of the same opinion as @Rauf that the benchmark list needs to be updated.

Eh, need to include legacy gpu bench for old gpus. Although wether or not they should have globals is another discussion 

A lot of the older benchmarks are just cpu benchmarks at this point. I think that it might be interesting to give some newer benchmarks globals but keep hardware points for the older benchmark.

PR should be added to HWBOT, because it is a very nice GPU only 3D benchmark atm.
