Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Ray Tracing In Vulkan r6

Resolution: 3840 x 2160 - Scene: Ray Tracing In One Weekend

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 230 public results since 4 February 2021 with the latest data as of 1 September 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.
