Metal tech demo and screen saver.

Overview

RainingCubes is a screen saver for OS X that animates anywhere from one to thousands of multi-colored cubes doing what cubes do when they have no surface beneath them, and the force of gravity is applied to them. That might not be too interesting on its own, but RainingCubes is the first screen saver for OS X that does its drawing using the new Metal 3D drawing API in OS X 10.11 (El Capitan). RainingCubes draws at a constant 60 FPS, supports Retina displays, supports optional FSAA (full-screen anti-aliasing), and by default draws using your Mac’s low-power GPU (if present) in order to conserve energy.

Does what it says it does. It's a basic screen saver that uses Metal. While it's not a benchmark app, it's still a great way to test if your GPU is metal ready on 10.11. Not all GPUs currently work with metal yet despite fact 10.11 is now general release. AMD/Nvidia didn't have every card ready yet in their drivers. Probably why apple only accelerates desktop using metal on Intel at present.
