A forum member by the name of Pat has recently released a new benchmark tool for DirectCompute. This tool allows you to benchmark DirectX 11 latest general-purpose computing feature by calculating tons of FFT-like data and some memory transfers. DirectCompute is an application programming interface (API) that takes advantage of the massively parallel processing power of a modern graphics processing unit (GPU) to accelerate PC application performance. Be advised that DirectX 11 and the latest display drivers are required to run this benchmark.

Update: A new version (0.35) is now available.

From readme file:
2) You DON'T need DX11 hardware, DirectCompute is supported on DX10 class devices if only drivers support it (forceware >= 190.62, Catalyst currently doesn't support DirectCompute on DX10/10.1 GPUs)

Help me out here. I read the Readme.txt file and it states that this can be run on DX10 hardware as long as DX11 is installed. I also have Windows 7 installed.

But, when I try to start the Benchmark, I get a "No DirectCompute Support" screen pop-up.

EDIT: OK....Catalyst/AMD Does NOT support this at this point on non-DX 11 hardware.

Multithreaded, wow my cpu got higher score than the gpu?? We propably need better drivers for directcompute from ati?



Singlethreaded...

EDIT: OH BTW, thx for the maker of this little bench. Keep em coming!! Its impressive how little cpu is used when the gpu is used. Very different from earlier DX10 benchies and games?

Hello,
with Catalyst 9.10 on Win7 x64 and HD5870 (900/1300)

Got M11849 and S11847

Why is there no difference between the multi an single bench ?
HaZe303 got the same results.

Is this a catalyst related issue ?

IŽd guess so, think about it, we have only had one official driver since release. And Win7 is new as well, so it could be something MS needs to fix. But dont worry about it, it will get sorted out eventually! Im sure of it.
