    lol No. Something that mesures time on image compresson per save. Things like that. Stuff that EVERY person is faced with using it. Not just filters and resize.

    come up with some kind of workflow, i'd be interested in using that for my ssd reviews and other reviewers will find a use for it, too

    I'd like to see Gas Guzzlers Combat Carnage; not only it's addictive but it's got great graphics and is rather demanding.

    I can create a push button action with a few addtional clicks. The issue would be the timer. The only Photoshop timer I know of is the one located in the document window.

    Ok, Ill use a file everyone can download so things stay uniform and write down each step with actions of course.

    can you do it without a 356MB file?


    I think a single file, and then an action file would be great! ;)


    Like here's the thing...I got a 500 GB drive for testing. I am MORE than willing to fill that full of benchmarks.


    But, I want the benchmarks to both show something useful, as well as them to have the ability to be run easily.


    For games, I prefer ones in STEAM, since that handles the activation issues.


    If you guys could provide a link to the actual benchmarks for the titles are listed, that'll be great. Some of these titles I've tested before, and they didn't prove useful, but those that I have not, I'll start testing with to see how they work.

    What about a 200MB file?

    Ha, I was being sarcastic. :p For me, anything up to 1 GB is OK, but maybe W1zz has more input on that.

    Great..but where is the benchmark?


    That is what I am looking for benchmarks...not me playing a game over and over again. I simply do not have the time to run 200++ tests by hand(I already post about 40 graphs in my reviews, and each test is ran no less than 5 times).

    Also, we are looking for things that test system/CPU performance, not GPU performance

    The game itself is a benchmark, just play the chapter from start to end ( is not long ) and get the results we need...

    Well a benchmark for that chapter not exist :ohwell:

    So, are you going to pay me for my time to play this chapter 10 times for every review?



    Or can I click a button once, and do other things?


    Like please be realistic about testing.


    I do not mean to be terse about this, but how long does that chapter take? 10 times, every week.. (5 times stock, 5 times OC) will add how much time to how long it takes me to do every review?


    I only have so much time...



    And again, I do not do GPU reviews. I do CPUs, motherboards, and memory. GPUs are W1zz's territory. Does changing motherboard, memory, or CPU, any one single of those, affect score results? I will be using the same GPU all the time...
     
    Chevalr1c and Animalpak say thanks.

    Whooops well i see "what games ... "and i suppose to be about GPU's...

    I understang the time and the hard work for a good precise review, is sad to see that the reviewers are not real gamers but simple employees need to do their job ...

    Real gamer would remember exactly where his system has slowed down, and when this happens, we worry about an upgrade to our system. Usually me :D

    has always been forgotten and discarded ... But I believe instead that it is the strongest point in the use of GPUs but also one that contains more art and design

    I played Crysis years ago, when it launched, on dual 2900XT's, on a 2560x1600 monitor. Such a painful memory....:p I bought htose cards just to try to enjoy that game...they showed tech demo running on dual X1950's...then ..well...NVidia happened...


    I do not see Cyrsis as relevant today. Years ago, sure. Today..not so much.



    And I do game daily, and do consider myself a gamer, but the fact of the matter is that I have limited time, like anyone else, so do have to budget it. TPU is supposed to be a hobby for me, not a full-time job, although some weeks I do put in 40+ hours.:laugh:

    Natural selection 2 is a pretty cpu limited game. Probably not a good benchmark game right now though.

    Crysis -Most neutral bench on planet i think (not 2 not warhead -just plain old crysis ) and il-2 sturmovic will be nice to represent flight sims .Actually im looking for crysis bench with i3 2120 /3220 phenom 965BE.

    But i think using games in vga tests will be very nice for us to comparing results ,it is why i liked TPU vga benchs ;games dont chnage at every test/bench .
