F1 2021

This is a benchmark of F1 2021 running under Steam Play (Proton) on Linux. The test profile assumes you have a Steam account, have Steam installed for the system, and that the game is already purchased/installed. This automates the process of executing the game and using a standardized time demo.

This test will attempt to install the necessary game using your Steam account. If the test appears hung you may need to manually exit the Steam client.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark f12021.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

F1 2021

Resolution: 3840 x 2160 - Graphics Preset: High

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 148 public results since 5 February 2022 with the latest data as of 29 September 2022.

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.
