LuxMark v2.0 – GPU Scores

LuxMark is a OpenCL benchmark tool that illustrates the potential of compatible processors in raytracing and progressive rendering.
The idea for the program was conceived in 2009 by Jean-Francois ‘Jromang’ Romang. It was intended as a promotional tool for LuxRender, the engine LuxMark is based on.

The benchmark is multi-platform (Win 32 & 64bit, OSX, Linux) and can be run on both CPUs and GPUs in any combination, e.g. OpenCL GPUs-only, OpenCL CPUs+GPUs, OpenCL CPUs-only. The benchmark is run for 120 sec and reports a score based on the rays/sec the device in question can process.

Luxmark v2.0 includes 3 test scenes of a raising complexity (~200,000, ~500,000, ~2,000,000 triangles). The 2 more complex ones are  included in the chart below.
