Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

OpenArena 0.8.8

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 6,540 public results since 11 April 2012 with the latest data as of 2 October 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.
