V2 - Benchmarking Jitter's CPU/GPU performance on your computer - V2


    Nov 29 2014 | 12:29 pm
    This is a continuation of the thread "Benchmarking Jitter's CPU/GPU performance on your computer". It is a thread with postings of the results of a benchmarch Pedro Santos made. Rob Ramirez gave a suggestion to make the patch better. The results for NVIDIA cards improvd a lot.
    That's why this follow up thread: here is the new patch and the relevant results. I post to results we got so for the the V2 patch with some relevant discussion underneath.
    It is a great way to see the performance of your system in Jitter. When you post remember to include your systems components, system OS and Max version. Here is the patch:

    • Here are the results and relevant remarks with V2 of the patch:
      (ROB RAMIREZ - about the old patch:
      the nvidia card is showing poor results in the two gpu-geometry tests because those patches are using fixed function shading. most likely the newer cards are not optimized to perform fixed-function shading. simply connecting a gl.material object to the gl.multiple, and the 3 gl.gridshape objects in the gpu-geometry sub-patches gives similar results with the nvidia card.)

      It’s funny, I was just going to post something related to what Rob Ramirez wrote (welcome to the thread, Rob!). When I wrote the original patch, I noticed discrepancies between using the fixed-function OpenGL pipeline and the current programmable pipeline (using shaders). For instance, in the GPU Geometry Test 1 (using jit.gl.multiple), with my AMD Radeon HD 4870, the results were something like: fixed-function pipeline (plain OpenGL material): 100 fps programmable pipeline (using shaders – jit.gl.material): 68 fps So I thought that the standard OpenGL implementation would always be quicker.
      As the tendency has been for a while to "deprecate the fixed-function pipeline (here’s a nice article about the subject), probably more recent graphics cards’ drivers don’t optimise for it.
      Thinking about this, I was going to suggest to build a complex OpenGL scene with objects using jit.gl.material, render-to-texture, depth buffers and post-processing effects (maybe Max7 shadows and other render passes).
      Anyway, here’s another nice lesson from this thread: USE JIT.GL.MATERIAL! It’s probably faster! Who would have thought?
      By the way, if that is the case, shouldn’t Jitter’s default behaviour be NOT to use the fixed-function pipeline? Or, at least, there could be a simple option similar to the OpenGL Readback mode present in the OpenGL Status menu? Just a thought…
      DTR: nice numbers! Finally! Thanks to MRMAARTEN’s findings and visits to the Apple Store ;-) , thanks to SPA’s results’ compilation and thanks to everyone’s contributions and for making this thread useful.
      =============================================================================== DTR
      Btw, for direct comparison we’re gonna need some of the AMD graphics owners to run the new version too. The outcome may be that the one shading method is better for Nvidia gfx and the other for AMD. Will be useful to be aware of this. Same for Intel integrated gfx.

      Rob Ramirez – thanks for explaining that to us – i’d been a bit worried id just bought a new computer that was going to bottleneck due to an inexplicably crap graphics card – greatly appreciated.

      @Jesse: Interesting, your Mac system is kinda in the same league as my Win PC. Your GTX680 gfx card should be a bit faster than my GTX670 yet my system is faster by a large margin. This might point out OSX vs Windows performance differences. Would you happen to have a Bootcamp/Windows install on it for direct comparison?
      Though I wonder how meaningful the results are when they’re in the 200+fps range. I’ll try to make a new/adapted test soon, with multi-display rendering etc to stress those high end systems more and see what comes out then. Got a bunch of gigs coming up again so no guaranteed ETA though.
      =============================================================================== JESSE
      No bootcamp install here but would be glad to run multi-screen tests. I agree the results are troubling regarding Mac/PC performance differences, it’s likely a driver optimization issue.

    • yup, how about when you run the first version of the test, with the fixed function shading?
      Dec 02 2014 | 9:11 pm
    • @ LIGHTSPEED.JOHNNY: What DTR means is that the previous version of this bench mark could work better on AMD graphics.
      Maybe you could try? On top of the thread https://cycling74.com/forums/benchmarking-jitters-cpugpu-performance-on-your-computer/ you can download the patch, please also post your results in that thread, as it keeps the data nice and clean...

    • It's indeed becoming quite clear that Jitter openGL performs better on Windows than OSX. Especially in GPU geometry 1. That being said, 200fps is in most cases much more than needed.
      @Juandaco Do you have a Windows install on that machine too?
      Dec 07 2014 | 5:09 pm
    • Sorry @DTR, I currently don't have a Windows partition on my system, but I'm curious about those benchmarks as well. I can probably do an installation just to compare, but I'm kind of busy this week. I might have some time available next week.

    • i want to buy a pc which connects permanently to a videowall with 9 full-hd monitors. right now i tested it with one with one nvidia gtx 1080 - i have 3 matrox tripleheads to go dp editions connected to its 3 dp outs and 9 dp cables to the screens. That works fine, but my question is if i could improve that setup if i use a pc with 2 gtx 1080 inbuilt (nvidia sli) - can one instance of max 64bit make use of both at the same time? If yes, could i also get rid of the matrox devices, since every graphic card has 5 outputs (3 x dp, 1 x dvi, 1 x hdmi) - so can i connect the 9 screens + 1 control monitor to the resulting 10 outputs directly? Anybody has experience with such a setup? Or what do you think would be the best graphics solution on pc at this time in general? Another question: Max 32bit had some limitations of RAM use - is the same true for Max 64 bit? + For videoplayback i guess it is still best to have two ssds - one with the system, one with the video files - right?

      Interestingly CPU rendering can differ quite a bit between runs. Who knows what Winbugs is doing in the background. GPU performance is quite steady. Also noteable is that my desktop GTX670 (results earlier in the thread) registers faster while it's slower in gaming benchmarks. It also beats Jesse's GTX1080 here, which definitely doesn't make sense. I think this shows that we're not pushing these cards to the fullest with Jitter patches like this. Or perhaps their OpenGL support isn't optimized. GPU-Z shows max GPU core load of 55% and other loads under 25% during the Jitter benchmark.
      (NB: obvisouly it doesn't surprise me that high tech commercial games utilize video cards better than our Jitter patches. )

      Jan 14 2017 | 9:21 pm
    • OpenCL is an entirely different thing than OpenGL. But that score is definitely bad (although I don't expect much good from Apple's these days but not this bad ;). Either the drivers are no good or the rendering methods used in Jitter and/or the benchmark are not well supported by this card/driver.

    • @abao Windows takes advantage of the retina resolution same as Mac OS, it's either a problem with Sierra's drivers or with Max. I'm leaning toward drivers though because it got low scores in GFX benchmark tests too, just 28fps on the Manhattan test onscreen.
      Jan 15 2017 | 3:12 pm
    • Just to follow up GFXbench scores are more than double on Windows what I'm getting on Mac. Manhattan test get's 60fps to just 28 on Mac. Same exact late 2016 MBP with AMD Radeon Pro 460. Why am I not hearing this anywhere else? :(
      Jan 15 2017 | 3:51 pm

    • Just wondering if there'd been any updates re: the Radeon Pro 460 4096 MB? My late 2013 MBP with NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB needs either costly repair or replacement. I could certainly benefit from faster jit.gl framerates so was looking into new MBP with the 460, but it looks like that might not be a given (unless I install Bootcamp?) Or has anything been updated on the OSX side in recent months?

      This, in a nutshell, is why I finally switched to PC and Windows. Also, the PC is less than half the price and equally portable.

    • I would be very interested in a comparison between Sierra (Metal1) and High Sierra (Metal2).
      Oct 26 2017 | 11:23 pm
    • @Herr There probably is no difference, as Jitter runs on OpenGL
      Oct 27 2017 | 9:23 am
    • @MrMaarten Thought this is kind of automatic and could even improve OpenGL software.
      Oct 27 2017 | 10:30 pm
    • @ HERR MARKANT Metal is Apple's own 3D api (like DirectX is of Microsoft). It is a substitute for OpenGL, it does not interface with it... Some more info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZaQ--Xti-k https://developer.apple.com/documentation/metal/a_brief_tour_of_metal

    • Some thoughts on this:
      Microsoft DirectX (Direct3D) up to version 11 is comparable to the various versions of OpenGL, being that the former is exclusive to Microsoft products (Windows, XBox), and the latter is universally implemented (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, etc).
      Then came AMD's Mantle, a lower-level, lighter and potentially faster implementation of graphics drivers for its graphics cards, including multithreading, that paved the way to the "current generation" trend, letting the developer have more control over the hardware, but also having to program more of the graphics engine. DirectX 12 followed this trend, and the Khronos Group, responsible for the OpenGL implementation, used most of the Mantle specification (now discontinued) and built Vulkan with cross-vendor (AMD, NVidia) and cross-platform support. Unfortunately, to this day, Apple still hasn't implemented Vulkan in Mac OS X and iOS, choosing instead to build Metal from scratch. So, right now, there is not a single universally usable modern graphics API: Windows: DirectX12, Vulkan Linux: Vulkan Mac: Metal iOS: Metal Android: Vulkan Which brings me to the question: what can a company with a cross-platform product like Cycling74 do? I would guess these facts are a strong reason why we're still stuck with OpenGL and not Metal/Vulkan:
      1. I'm certain that it is not a trivial task to port Jitter to something other than OpenGL, seeing as it relies so much on its built-in features.
      2. Cycling74 would have to develop much more of the graphics pipeline, instead of relying so much on the OpenGL API features, because newer APIs lack it (leave its implementation to the developers).
      3. On top of this additional work, Cycling74 would have to implement it twice, Metal for Mac and Vulkan or DirectX for Windows!
      I think there's not an easy answer to this. The only solution would be to do it and abstract the specific implementation of each platform to the user, sort of like in a game engine such as Unreal. And that is not a simple task at all...
      So... OpenGL is dead! Long live OpenGL!

    • Thanks for all the infos, slowly i understand it (i really thought OpenGL is a part of Metal). And maybe there is still hope for Vulkan (German for vulcano) in OS X, because Apple is a member of the Khronos Group.
