Basemark GPU targets both Desktop and Mobile platforms by providing both High Quality and Medium Quality modes. The High-Quality mode addresses cutting-edge Desktop workloads while the Medium Quality mode addresses equivalent Mobile workloads. The Basemark GPU benchmark is developed on top of a Basemark proprietary engine called the Basemark Rocksolid Engine. Written in C++, this engine allows us to efficiently develop objective benchmarks for multiple operating systems and graphics APIs. Basemark Rocksolid Engine architecture abstracts resources and rendering. In this way, all platforms run the tests with the same workload. This functionality makes the benchmark reliable between different operating systems.
Basemark GPU runs through an advanced game-like scene with up to tens of thousands of individual draw
calls per frame. This test showcases the benefit of the new graphics APIs like Vulkan and DirectX12
both regarding performance and in content production: allowing designers to craft a massive number
of individual objects without being limited by older API instancing strategies
Basemark GPU supports multiple operating systems with Android, Windows and Linux support released today. Support for additional graphics APIs such as Metal and DirectX 12 and operating systems such as Apple iOS will be added in the coming months. The product uses Rocksolid Engine by Basemark, which enables the tester to execute identical workloads across many different devices and technologies, thus enabling advanced GPU profiling from many angles. Basemark GPU is developed in close cooperation with key player semiconductor companies, such as Imagination Technologies, Intel, NVIDIA, Qualcomm and Renesas within Basemark's benchmark development program. This close cooperation with the leading GPU and CPU companies of the world ensures that the benchmark will be extremely reliable and also represent the utmost in objectivity.
