That's a pretty serious hit.


Thats high! What is your setup?

Using a Q6600 at 2.4GhZ, 4GB DDR2 RAM, and a GTX 295:

I reckon I'm let down by my CPU clock. I get 2.5 FPS with shadows... and up to 15 FPS by making my SU window insanely small ^_^

New machine:
  • 3.0 GHz Dual core CPU
  • nVidia 9600 (1Gb) GPU
  • 4Gb RAM
  • Windows XP SP3 (32 bit)

Did I tell you that I like this new computer? :D
And even my girlfriend likes it as it has a nice box/house, too (with a 22" Samsung monitor) ;)

Hmmm. I didn't realise SU can take advantage of SLi setup. I read that it doesn't even scale linearly in most games. Apparently it does scale with SU. Otherwise GTX 280 from Solo's setup would have achieved higher score.

Now consider that it's new, the Windows registry is hardly messed up (which is unusual on MY machines :D )and not too many programs are installed yet. I will remember this thread in a couple of months and revisit to see if there's a considerable slowdown.

I'm curious about this -
My (rather underpowered) computer -

AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core 5000 2.6 GHz
NIVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
1GB PC2-5300
2GB DDR2 PC2-8500
32 bit Vista Home

My results -

No textures or shadows:
72 frames in 7.228 seconds
Average frame = 0.100 seconds
10.00 frames/second

With textures (1 wood texture on the whole group):
72 frames in 30.46 seconds
Average frame = 0.423 seconds
2.4 frames/second

With shadows on:
72 frames in 34.9 seconds
Average frame = 0.485 seconds
2.1 frames/second

I'm going to upgrade the video card on this computer in a couple of weeks. I'm limited in my options because it's a HP Slimline so I can only use a low profile card. But no matter what it is, the memory available for the GPU will be increased. If I understand the situation correctly (which is doubtful) I should see better scores on the texture and shadow tests because it's the GPU that's handling texture and shading, right?

I invite anyone who is actually knowledgeable about such matters to correct me if I've totally misunderstood this issue.

Here is a screenshot of the processor(s) and the video card. Since the test above, I found that SU performed glitchy with certain models and updated my video driver (but haven't made another test yet).

Where does this Test.time_display command come from? Some undocumented debug feature?

From a quick glance at the results - it looks like shadows are averaging to be 5 times slower than without.

Still the same machine as here but with SU 7.1 now:
  • 3.0 GHz Dual core CPU
  • nVidia 9600 (1Gb) GPU
  • 4Gb RAM
  • Windows XP SP3 (32 bit)
To me, the improvement in speed (with this test model) is very stunning:

Interesting that no matter how many times I tried, the performance was better with shadows on. :?
(Of course while making the test with shadows on now, SU temporarily turns them off for increasing orbiting and such but still...)

That's a massive difference!

Interesting test results:

Ran it with SU7.1, then saved it as SU6 and ran it with v6.4

Glenn,

Now that's some impressive speed increase (of course, there areno textures in the model and such but still)

Brodie;
OK-ok... there are your computer specs but we don't know (just suspect maybe) what SU version you have!

i didn't run this pre su7.1 but i'm willing to assume a huge difference since upgrading...

Here's something odd.....I tried the test on 2 models, one the test model and the other one my roller coaster model. Here's the result.....quite suprising:

How about the video card and OpenGL hardware support ("acceleration" in Preferences > OpenGL)?
