OpenMark is an OpenGL benchmark for Mac OS X. OpenMark tests the raw speed of the video card drawing a variable (automatic or user-defined) number of triangles and generates a screenshot and a text report of the results.
What's new in OpenMark
Version 1.60: This is the REAL Universal Binary (thanks to radha) due to a bug translating the old project for the new xcode. I apologize for the problem.
Version 1.50 is now a Universal Binary, for PPC and Intel platforms
808,xxx,xxx triangles to get to 1 FPS
benchmark final score: 8128
Power Mac G5, dual proc 1.8 ghz

Ati radeon 9700 pro AGP 8X card.
At first run , the app would Quite unexpectedly when I tried to benchmark. rebooted and working fine now.
Great, near CPU independent GPU Render Bench.
Dont look at the startup window FPS - to small , to less triangles.
Real Results interesting you, you will gett by running the "Run Benchmark" (Menü Openmark).
The Openmark counts with thr "Run Benchmark" how many triangles can be computed by the GPU/VRAM Speed until 9.0 FPS is reached - in fullscreen.
Loads up ok and can use the scrollwheel to change the interactice sphere test fine.
But run benchmark and Boom. The Application OpenMark has Unexpectedly quit.
Interesting app. Would be nice to offer some tests that are no so CPU bound as well like some of those ATI demos and screen savers which eat virtually no CPU.

Seems good but a bit useless without some 'official' results to compare to. Hopefully the X800XT I ordered will give much better results that I can compare to.
Just a note: the Windows version of this tool was mainly developed to help GioFX Screensaver fans to check their setup and discover if GioFX screensaver would have run well on their peecees so the final score (measured at 5 FPS) isn't that meaningful ...
Just look at the polycount at 30 fps and this number will give you some useful infos :)
