Enable Windows support for Quake II RTX using Windows GitHub copy.

pts/quake2rtx-1.6.0   [View Source]   Fri, 21 Jan 2022 18:28:25 GMT
Update against Quake II RTX, switch from using Steam based Q2RTX and instead just download Linux binary straight from GitHub... Simplifies things greatly and more reliable.

Fix for resolution setting as prior push somehow had pre.sh missing.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Quake II RTX 1.6

Resolution: 1920 x 1080 - Global Illumination: Off - Denoiser: Off - Ray Tracing API: VK_NV_ray_tracing

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 53 public results since 21 January 2022 with the latest data as of 29 May 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.

Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Quake II RTX 1.6 - Resolution: 1920 x 1080 - Global Illumination: Off - Denoiser: Off - Ray Tracing API: VK_NV_ray_tracing) has an average run-time of 2 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 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.
