Is there any latest version of Holomark2 for Rhino5 link to download?

I have downloaded the Holomark2 Benchmark at holomark2.com
This is a test in the architecture office machine.

Antialiasing: 8x | Mip Map Filtering: Linear | Anisotropic Filtering: High | Driver v: 416.81

Same test with options disable:

Antialiasing: None | Mip Map Filtering: None | Anisotropic Filtering: None | Driver v: 416.81
Only mesh tests was improved.

This should be the latest of the V5 version:

While others may post high scores, I think my score is one of the lowest on this thread:

I think I should upgrade my laptop before architecture grad school rolls around in 3 months… I model heavily and render, so I think the latest-gen i7 card combined with oodles of RAM will be decent. For the GPU, I’m undecided whether to cash-in on a Quadro or GTX card since both seem to perform well as the Holomark test.

you need to go into the nVidia drivers and set them to use the 960 for Rhino, because the default for some dual chip laptops are to use the low energy intel chip… That should boost you up. The 960M is a pretty good gpu still.

In Nvidia control panel, I have what I think is Rhino set to use the 960 card and the score is low. Rhino only recognizes 64Mb of GPU memory available from the 960m which is crazy.


Not sure what could be causing this issue


I’m getting an error ERROR: HM2_Wire was not propperly installed with HoloMark2 for Rhino 5 on Windows 10, my Rhino language is French (not Italian). I cannot change the language in the appearance settings.

It’s not important to me, I was just hoping to get the lowest ever score and win at HoloMark golf :wink:

New Ryzen build with stock CPU/memory settings/cooler. Will switch to AIO cooler and OC sometime soon.

Is still possible to download Holomark 2 for Rhino 5?

It should be possible from here:

going to check. I want to test, again, the office machines.

you certainly don’t need an aio, that’s a common misconception. get a good aircooler, like one from noctua, bequiet or thermalright. if it is one of the higher end noctuas you will have better cooling performance that standard aio’s and you will not have to bare the constant noise of a waterpump.
I just recently built a system with a 3900X and a bequiet Dark Rock 4. even under sustained load (tested with prime 95) the cpu does not reach 70 degrees C AND it stays quiet all the time.

oh and btw, OCing Ryzen2nd gen does not make any sense.

New machine - it’s a :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: beast compared to the old one, and I love it! :heart: Can’t wait to get Keyshot installed and get those cores working :grinning:
And @Holo, maybe it’s time to revise the scale for Holomark 3? :wink: Some of those GPU scores go wayyyy of the chart :crazy_face:
