Portal

This is a benchmark of Valve's Portal game. The test profile assumes you have a Steam account and have Steam installed for the system. 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 portal.
