VKMark

VKMark is a collection of open-source Vulkan tests / rendering benchmarks.

Some external dependencies needed for this test may not be currently covered by all operating systems - depending upon distribution/version. You might need to manually install extra packages; on an Ubuntu system it may include - sudo apt install libvulkan-dev libglm-dev libassimp-dev libxcb1-dev libxcb-icccm4-dev libwayland-dev libdrm-dev libgbm-dev.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark vkmark.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

VKMark 2022-05-16

Resolution: 1920 x 1080 - Present Mode: Mailbox

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 169 public results since 23 June 2022 with the latest data as of 25 November 2022.

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.
