JXRenderMark is an open-source benchmark of the X Render extension for X.Org. Currently all tests are rendering to the backbuffer and not directly to the screen.

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

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (JXRenderMark 1.0.1 - Test: 12pt Text LCD - Size: 128x128) has an average run-time of 2 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 6 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.
