The Talos Principle

This is a benchmark of The Talos Principle. The test profile assumes you have a Steam account, have Steam installed for the system, and that The Talos Principle can be installed. 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 talos-principle.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

The Talos Principle

Renderer: Vulkan - Resolution: 1920 x 1080

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 327 public results since 15 December 2016 with the latest data as of 10 January 2019.

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.
