GFXBench is a free, cross-platform and cross-API 3D graphics benchmark that measures graphics performance, long-term performance stability, render quality and power consumption with a single, easy-to-use application.

GFXBench 5.0 enables measuring mobile and desktop performance with advanced graphics effects and increased workloads across multiple rendering APIs.


• Cross API benchmark using Vulkan and OpenGL
Aztec Ruins: our first benchmark to test devices with game-like content using available for both Vulkan and OpenGL ES 3.2.

• Aztec Ruins render features
- Dynamic global illumination
- Compute shader based HDR tone mapping, bloom and motion blur
- Sub-pass based deferred rendering: Geometry and lighting passes take advantage of local memory caches.
- Dynamic lighting and real-time shadows
- Real time SSAO for depth-of-field effect

• Automatically detects your device's capabilities and selects the most appropriate test set for your device to provide accurate information. Therefore, the list of available tests may vary between devices.
• Car Chase for OpenGL ES 3.1 plus Android Extension Pack testing
• Manhattan 3.0 for OpenGL ES 3.0 and Manhattan 3.1 for OpenGL ES 3.1 testing
• Battery and Stability test: Measures the device’s battery life and performance stability by logging frames-per-second (FPS) and expected battery running while running sustained game-like animations
• Render quality test: Measures the visual fidelity provided by the device in the high-end gaming-like scene
• Multi-lingual, easy-to-use user interface: device comparison within the application by downloading the complete GFXBench database, extensive system information
• On-screen and off-screen test run modes
• Includes all previous low-level tests for devices with only ES2.0 capability.

Test list (varied by Vulkan and OpenGL ES capabilities):

• Aztec Ruins
• Car Chase
• Manhattan 3.1
• Manhattan
• T-Rex
• Tessellation
• ALU 2
• Texturing
• Driver Overhead 2
• Render Quality
• Battery and Stability
• Alpha Blending
• Driver Overhead
• Fill

Please note: The full fledged benchmark needs at least 900 MB free space on the device (required for the high-level test scenes).
