ASTC Encoder

ASTC Encoder (astcenc) is for the Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression (ASTC) format commonly used with OpenGL, OpenGL ES, and Vulkan graphics APIs. This test profile does a coding test of both compression/decompression.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark astcenc.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

ASTC Encoder 4.7

Preset: Thorough

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 128 public results since 6 April 2024 with the latest data as of 23 April 2024.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (ASTC Encoder 4.7 - Preset: Thorough) has an average run-time of 4 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
