Heaven OpenGL benchmarks DP6

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Heyas Folks!

 

So, Apple just released 10.9 DP6 today, and like all good testers ran it through the hoops. Everything looks good, but one thing that looks great are the benchmarks for OpenGL 4.1! Here are my results in both Windows 8.1 and OS X 10.9 DP6. Heaven was run 3 times each OS with a reboot in-between each.

GA-Z77X-UD5H, i7 3770K (stock), 16GB 1866MHz, HIS Radeon 7950HD IceQ x2 Boost 3GB

Heaven 4.0 Basic, Extreme preset OpenGL

 

OS X 10.9 DP6: 29.3fps/737

 

Windows 8.1 13.8b2: 26/656

Just upgraded to Preview 6 myself, so had to try it.  In practice, playing Civilization 5 Brave New World at 1920 x 1080 resolution, Preview 5, was a great improvement over all previous attempts at playing it on OSX, and DP6 and 7 seem great too.  

 

Heaven 4.0 Basic, Extreme preset OpenGL

 

OS X 10.9 DP6 (OpenGL): 26.9 fps / 679

Windows 8.1 (OpenGL): 26.9 fps / 676

Windows 8.1 (DirectX 11): 28.9 fps / 729 (DirectX 11 still rules, LOL. see note)

 

And, having just upgraded to Preview 7

 

OS X 10.9 DP7 (OpenGL): 26.6 fps / 670

 

Note:  I hadn't previously thought about this but it probably invalidates any direct comparison between the Mavericks and Win 8.1 results, (confesses) my Win 8.1 drive is a Liteon 256gb sata3 SSD, while OS X runs on an old Hitachi 1tb sata2 HDD.  Some rainy day I'll switch Mavericks onto the SSD and make for a fair comparison.

 

With Mavericks DP7 imaged to the SSD, results were:  fps 26.6, Score 670

DirectX 11 still rules, LOL.

By a very tiny margin...

These are good results. I cannot compare with Windows, but my slow 9600M GT (macbook) does quite a bit better under mavericks than under ML in that test. Perhaps 15% better, and dp6 brought substantial improvements.

And mac still sucks :D You cant play old games like diablo 2 and others, whereas in windows8/8.1 you still can play many old games, and windows has many many many times more games ;) Thats the real deal in this windows vs mac fight, rather than +- a few fps in some benchmarks, who cares about it, if you cant play games you want - playing with wine and similiar programs doesnt count here as mac games. Just dont take it personally, lol.

Not sure why you thought I took it personally by specifying that the OS X results get closer to the Windows results.  No one was discussing the number of games in each platform. You're off topic.

I ran Unigine Valley Benchmark 1.0 on Mavericks Prev 7 and Win 8.1:

 

at Extreme setting ie 1600x900 8xAA windowed,

 

Mavericks Prev 7 OpenGL score: fps 31.7, Score 1327

Windows 8.1, OpenGL score: fps 31.7, Score 1328

Windows 8.1, DirectX 11 score: fps 36.3, Score 1517

 

at Extreme HD setting ie 1920x1080 8xAA fullscreen,

 

Mavericks Prev 7 OpenGL score: fps 23.7, Score 990

Windows 8.1, OpenGL score: fps 24.0, Score 1003

Windows 8.1, DirectX 11 score: fps 27.5, Score 1149

 

Note:  I hadn't previously thought about this but it probably invalidates any direct comparison between the Mavericks and Win 8.1 results, (confesses) my Win 8.1 drive is a Liteon 256gb sata3 SSD, while OS X runs on an old Hitachi 1tb sata2 HDD.  Some rainy day I'll switch Mavericks onto the SSD and make for a fair comparison.

 

Well it wasn't raining, but I did image Mavericks to the SSD, results:

 

at Extreme setting ie 1600x900 8xAA windowed, score: fps 31.6, Score 1322

at Extreme HD setting ie 1920x1080 8xAA fullscreen, score: fps 23.8, Score 995

Be careful with the "windowed" score. As I mentioned on netkas' blog, OS X imposes Vsync on any windowed app, even if you explicitly disable it. At least it does on my Macs. 

I'm not sure if windows does it.

      Hello everyone, I have an Asus gl502vmk (i7 kabylake + GTX 1060 6 gb) laptop and I tried all the patches/kexts to get the brightness with fn keys/touchpad (I2C ELAN 1200 works with VooDoo I2C kext v1.0 but no gestures/preference pane)/Keyboard backlight to work but no success so far, any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
      [EDIT] (10/04/2018)
      Battery status now works, thanks to @RehabMan turned out to be incorrect SMBIOS (used iMac instead of Mbp) lol, but it drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours while on standby (all apps quited!), on windows 10 it lasts 4 - 5 hours, and on linux it lasts 6 ~ 7 hours!)
      And with VoodooI2C v2.0.1 + VoodooI2CHID kext and patched DSDT, the touchpad is now detected in the sys pref pane but still no input.
      Sound works with VoodooHDA v2.9.1, but the only issue is that the jack sense isn't working (the output device doesn't auto switch to headphone when connected)
       
      [EDIT 2] (11/04/2018)
      The system brightness now works thanks to @onejay09 but I have no brightness slider, and there are 4 extra brightness levels (brightness stops increasing after 12 levels)  and the brightness keys are not mapped correctly, plus the brightness decreases when I plug in the ac adapter, then increases if I unplug it???, the brightness level isn't also saved after reboot.
      battery still drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours, even with brightness at 50%, so apparently it is a power management issue).
      and I also have shutdowns while in sleep mode (I tried darkwake=10 and darkwake-0 and darkwake=no)
       
      P.S. I have uploaded my new report files, thanks!

      Please help me with this 10.9.5 system. Motherboard: Gigabyte 965p-s3 rev3.3, gpu: Ati Radeon HD6450 (dvi/hdmi/vga). 
      Using any of the 3 ports on the 6450 (dvi, hdmi, vga), I see all the white letters on black background during boot but when they complete and it's time for the graphics to start I get a black screen and sometimes a restart after that. Using Clover 4411. Is there any way to get past this?

      Could you please help me enable the VGA port on the GT710 in 10.9.5 13F34 ? 
      It is currently booting fine through its HDMI port, web driver 334.0103f01 and config.plist arguments checked: Verbose (-v), npci=0x2000, dart=0, nvda_drv=1
      The nvidia GT710 works fine through its VGA port and web drivers on a friend's Mac Pro 3,1
      I must soon return this borrowed HDMI monitor, mine only has a VGA port so I'd appreciate your input.

      Have managed to boot into Finder without a usb but cannot see the outside world. Could you please help me to enable Marvell 80E8056 ethernet access on 10.9.5 13F34 ?

      Note: This computer works with every version of OS X since (virtually) Snow Leopard, to High Sierra (and newer I presume, except if Apple makes drastic changes). Depending on your hardware configuration, you may need to change some settings and experiment more.
      My configuration:
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3570 3.4GHz RAM: 8GB DDR3 GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GT210 1GB (connected via HDMI) What works, what doesn't?
      Works: Native power management with TB, USB 3.0*, Ethernet*, parallel ports (natively)... Doesn't work: Intel HD2500. If you have i7 or another CPU with HD4000, you may get it to work. The options in BIOS are there, it's just I hadn't had any luck with the HD2500 and couldn't enable it (tried various ways). Note: I don't know if native audio works, as I own an USB audio interface and I use it without any problems. I presume you'll be able to get audio with AppleHDA patches or in last resort VoodooHDA. Let me just say that this is a relatively compatible computer. The motherboard is very good, with the exception of the PSU - you are limited to set of GPUs. Before I had the GT210, I had GTX1050 which worked wonderfully with High Sierra (latest version). But for my purposes, I needed Mavericks and hence the GPU downgrade.
      BIOS settings
      SATA mode to AHCI Disable VT-d Disable integrated GPU (if you have HD2500) Enable Execute Disable Bit Installation Guide
      Create an USB with DiskMakerX Install Clover on it (no special settings needed) Insert FakeSMC.kext into kexts/Other folder When booting, select all the CPU patches (including XCPM) If you have NVIDIA GT210, you'll need to disable the integrated GPU and only select 'Inject NVIDIA' in Graphics settings in Clover Viola Additional Kexts
