Holomark 2 Released!

You mean like in this rough test that I now have up and running where it first tests the CPU and then the GPU:
:slight_smile: I don’t know what I should do if more or less items are available though. If a GPU isn’t good to go, how to i know? I mean, I use rs.Command(“RhinoCycles_SelectDevice 1”) to set it to GPU.

And how about if you detect more than one GPU? Would you test each individually and then test using them all? So far probably Nathan is the only one who might want this. :slight_smile:

If you have the ability to parse the output of the command history you could do so for the command RhinoCycles_ListDevices.

I’d dare say all users want that info - a good collection of benchmarks for as many devices as we can get our hands on.

I was just referring to the fact that you’re probably the only one with multiple high-performance GPU’s. I mean, who cares how an an Intel integral GPU performs on raytracing? :smile:

Wow for those scores.
new i9 9900k flagship is getting my attention for good.
And if that P2000 is good i can imagine the P4000

I do have an Intel HD Graphics 630 and a GTX 760 in my dev machine, too. (Besides the GTX 1060, and the Radeon Pro WX9100, but that’s not the point :wink: ).

yeh we just had 3 new workstations custom built, I’m certainly no expert at specifying PC builds but did a little research, spoke with the company who build, and voila, they seem to be running our models fine, Rhino, Vectorworks, Autocad etc. We got these built and tested, with 3 year warranty for just under 2k each (£GBP) :+1:

do you bought it from Puget?

No bought from Scan , UK Bolton based specialist :+1:

Do they have a web page?

Yeh, https://www.scan.co.uk

What about Holomark for Rhino 6.0?

any news?

Thanks !

Have fun:

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
