Hey-ho hackintosh scene!

 

There is a need for us to test a lot of Mac configurations of a really stressful GPU-based app. The app contains cool GFX, tons of metrics, it can crash your GPU, CPU, Mac, etc. Of course if drivers are fine then nothing like this will happen. If not.. then we really want to help Apple fix those drivers by giving them feedback using special channel that's open to us for some time. And we need you guys to help us.

 

So - the app is called FractalArchitect and you can download it for free from MacAppStore. Also if you want to test CUDA be sure to mail support@fractalarchitect.net for your special exectuable. 

 

The test cases are pretty easy. Download app. Start it. Click 'Free GPU trial', and try OpenCL/Metal/CUDA rendering with 4 sample fractals. If everything is fine you can capture your performance metrics (when you render fractal second time, as first time it also counts compile time). if not - please leave bug-report in this topic.

 

For people with iGPU/descrete - do tests of both GPUs. Any cool cases (eGPU) are welcome.

 

Let the tests begin. 

 

P.S. You can share any super cool fractals you created here as well.

P.P.S. Just to clarify. This is _not_ my application. I just serve as a proxy that will channel the bug-reports to the right people inside Apple. The author of the app will keep an eye on this post as well but in _no_ way this is an advertising. The app is a Rosetta stone for compute testing. And that's it.

P.P.P.S Do not search bugs inside app. You guys are _not_ beta testers of it. You test your GFX/Compute drivers.

Sure, just open source your app and we would like to test it (sigh)...

 

If you are going to make advertising your app, at least give out some coupons...

The app is free (with in-app for professionals - and they don't need to test) ! And.. it's open source as well - https://bitbucket.or...odhead/faengine
