Benchmark when 2.5 is stable ?

Recommended Posts

When 2.5 comes out, when ever that is, and is stable, maybe put the effort to create an in-built benchmark.

 

You can't go wrong with an in-built benchmark.

 

Plus, this way you get free marketing.

 

A lot of tech channels on youtube/facebook do gaming benchmarks and you need games with in built such, so you can have a stable, repeatable platform for benchmarking. Believe it or not, there are not that many games, which feature this.

 

I am sure DCS 2.5 will look astonishing and would be up to the challenge of challenging the newest modern hardware.

 

Just an idea I am sharing

+1 good idea, though with a complex sim like this it might be inconsistant

There used to be a benchmark mission for Arma 2, but it gave varying results on different runs (you had to average results of 3 runs to get anything meaningfull)

If this loop is done properly it may get picked up by some reviewers to stress hardware and so spread the word about DCS among readers and awaken some interest in trying it out...it still is for free ! There is more into it than just benchmarking one's own rig, it's a business card you hand out imho.

Definitely +1 for some kind of a benchmark.

 

Very often I read people stating "after this patch I have the feeling my performance got better/worse". But they rarely give details how they come to this conclusion, i.e. what kind of mission etc.

 

Personally, I have a few recorded tracks, which I replay after bigger updates of DCS, graphics drivers and such. I monitor the FPS with FRAPS during the replay which spits out an CSV file and can directly compare it to all earlier versions of the game. That helps me to see if the performance really was affected by an update and in which direction.

 

I know there are issues with the track replay. But for me it works fine - at least with my benchmarks tracks.

 

So in principle we already have some kind of benchmark system available :)

Would be even better if there were a DCS option to export the FPS to a CVS or Excel file.

A warrior's mission is to foster the success of others.

True, with the new graphics engine and pbr lighting many people could be interested in using dcs as a bench, even more if we promote it in 3d and gaming dedicated forums...

Not only that DCS looks good but is different and power hungry usually thus possibly making easier to differentiate closed matched hardware. Plus free advertising...
