Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

GL-vs-VK 2017-06-05

Test: Static Scene - API: Vulkan - Multi-Threaded: Yes

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 84 public results since 5 June 2017 with the latest data as of 26 September 2022.

Additional benchmark metrics will come after OpenBenchmarking.org has collected a sufficient data-set.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (GL-vs-VK 2017-06-05 - Test: Static Scene - API: Vulkan - Multi-Threaded: Yes) has an average run-time of 2 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.
