Portable Benchmarks: all-in-one benchmark installer


Recommended Posts

Because I'm testing daily something new, the time spent gathering the benchmarks needed to run -so many new ones- had to be somehow reduced.

With ninite.com in mind, I decided to make my own offline installer that would install all needed benchmarks and their dependencies in one click, and remove them just as easily.


Constrained by size of the benchmarks, I will split this project into separate installers:


  1. 2D Benchmarks
    v1.6 FULL (All 2D benchmarks, sorted by categories).
    Source Code: https://gist.github.com/GENiEBEN/8549147
    Binaries: The Hardware Database
    v1.6 LITE (Only benchmarks with HWBOT points).
    Source Code: https://gist.github.com/GENiEBEN/8549239
    Binaries: The Hardware Database
  2. 3D Benchmarks (coming soon)
  3. OC Tools (coming soon)

NOTE: PCMark04 and 05 are not installed silently, and they are not removed by uninstaller. To remove them use their own uninstaller. This will be fixed in a future revision.

Hey guys, I'm glad it's useful for others as well. Today I've made some changes, the new version v1.1 can be downloaded from here. I will ask Pieter to update the HWBOT mirror too.


Let me know if you'd like to see other 2D benchmarks part of this installer. Until then, I will move on to making the installer for OC Tools.

Do an 'old points' version (AQ3,3d01, 3d03, 3d05, 3d06, 3d99+3d2000 unchecked)

a 'new points version (3DMV, 3D11, 3D12, Heaven, Catzilla)



I see the best way as follows:

1) 2D Lite (only point-awarded benchmarks, plus CPU-Z/GPU-Z)

2) 2D full (with beta benchmarks)

3) 3D Lite (only benchmarks with points)

4) 3D full


Instead of 2D/3D Full may be a one full package. But I recommend to do a split 2D/3D lite.
