Small 2D benchmark (of course OpenGL is used by QE / OS X) that measures creation time of 333 windows.
Possible to select tested gpu/display for multi gpu systems (HD4000+discrete GPU).
HD4000 performs very well compared to discrete gpus, because of fast cpu(cache)<>gpu bandwidth , no PCI-E overhead times/transferlimits and very low complex OpenGL commands / very less memeory transfer sizes compared to 3D benches.
430 GT / OS X 10.9 / Quad 2.8 : around 24,1 sec (Oct 2013 Version!)
EDIT: New Oct 2013 version:
- max. window size = screen size doesnt matter anymore
- added an second buffer flash = a bit more cpu>gpu transfer for each window
Old values cant be compared to oct 2013 version!
users with lower (< 1600x1024 screen) will get slower results because of more buffer flashes each window creation
