Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

OpenArena 0.8.8

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 31,959 public results since 11 April 2012 with the latest data as of 14 June 2021.

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.
