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.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Portal

Resolution: 1920 x 1080

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 457 public results since 3 June 2016 with the latest data as of 24 April 2024.

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.
