Eternity Benchmark is a high end benchmarking program I put together using a visual prototype I made a few months ago. I am releasing this for free to anyone interested! This benchmark is pretty straight forward, it offers a very large open valley and gives you the ability to fly through the entire area freely. It also includes a simple camera flythrough of the environment. Some may remember this from a video I put out a few months ago, it is mostly the same environment with a few minor changes. This is mostly built for higher end PCs but definitely interested in hearing what kind of performance people with different hardware get on the map.
If this proves popular at all I am definitely interested in improving upon this and adding new features or increasing the visual bar considerably, so any feedback is definitely welcome
Looks impressive man! Thank you! on my 970/i7 4790k I was mainly in the 45-60 when on the ground, but being fair I did dip into the 30’s in spots with a lot of trees and grass. Q.Q
Still though, it’s a shame it’s only a Benchmark. I could totally see this in an actual game. ^.^It was pretty well designed.
How did you accomplish the fog with distance? I am trying to add something similar to my water so that the player can only see a few feet in front of them. You didn’t use exponential height fog did you?
Glad people seem to like it Very interested in hearing what kind of performance different people are getting on different hardware. It will help a lot in knowing how far I push the current game I’m working on.
The fog I’m using can be found in the cave effects demo. It is done using a flat plane mesh with a material that adds the distance fade and scrolling fog effect, this is used in combination with both the atmospheric and exponential fog.
Your going to complain about something released for free? The Witcher 3 was made by a lot of developers over several years time on a mult-million dollar budget and costs $60. I put this together by myself over about a 2-3 month period and released it 100% for free. A few quick notes regarding this benchmark. I did not shoot for low or even medium quality, I only shot for high quality, that includes several features that will cripple most mid to low end PCs such as real time global illumination and pushing render distances for most objects that would be retarded on an actual game.
On top of all of these things this was as mentioned a visual prototype. The finished version looksa heck of a lot better, has about 5X more detail and performs a lot better but I am not ready to show that yet.
great work you did here and if iam not mistaken this only cost about 512 MB of RAM so thats really something as for VG RAM it cost me 1.5 GB so its very good for this high level of graphic but my problem is i only can run it in 720p i can’t change it to 1080P , hope you give me a way to do that , and i i just subscribed to your channel in youtube i am looking to see some great stuff from you in the future .
it run smooth in my GTX 770 2GB about 25-50 FPS flying and near the ground .
The guys from the Witcher 3 used a pretty good technique for their foliage -> they somehow managed to create pretty good looking vegetation (the small ones like grass, flowers,…) **without **any shadows. This improves the performance of the game.
