    Time to put your new generation GPUs through a refreshingly new benchmark, Catzilla. This synthetic benchmark uses a scripted 3D scene approach, much like 3DMark and Heaven. Developed by Polish studio Plastic Image, Catzilla is a cross-API benchmark designed for OpenGL 4.0 and DirectX 9 or 11, and the Windows platform (64-bit and 32-bit Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8). The benchmark uses a parallel graphics engine that takes advantage of multi-core CPUs. For now we know little more about the upcoming benchmark, but you can sign up at their website to participate in a closed-beta.

    A Teaser Video of the benchmark run follows.

    As always, first glance good trailer is getting ruined by the all ubiquitous crapstep.
    It's as if no marketing can be done without it.

    Oh wow. I was curious after seeing the word catzilla, got a :wtf: face when I saw the picture, starting laughing real hard 3/4 way through, and then was interrupted by that dubstep mess.

    Think about how they made this.
    "Guys, lets make a gpu benchmark."
    "Sounds good but how will we ever market it over other known gpu benchmarks?"
    ...thinking...
    "I GOT IT! LETS MAKE CATZILLA!!!!!"

    I signed up just for lols.

    Almost perfect

    As was mentioned above, it has a lot to do with Lady gaga.
    Looks like the best bench in many years and music is just perfect for that video,
    but benchmark name is way off. That creature does not resemble Godzilla at all.

    May I suggest something like: Lady caty-gaga, the stinky hairy mutant pussy.

    If somebody actually registered with them, please tell those polish shmucks, DX 7 is dead.

    By the amount of particles seen on this video, this test is probably just for nVidia and their physics crap....

    If you have to listen to dubstep the whole entire time you are using this benchmark then that is stress to a whole new level :rolleyes:

    We've spoken with the program's devs, and we can confirm that the particle FX is not made with NVIDIA PhysX, but a custom CPU-driven physics engine. Maybe just procedural.
     
    james888, Prima.Vera and NHKS say thanks.

    Yes, they tell us the program should be a treat for multi-core CPUs. More cores the better.

    Before I can put down any comment, allow me to pick up all my brain pieces that are currently scattered all over the floor.

    I think someone was on acid when they thought this up.
