Unigine 720p, testing Tkg against Zen kernel on Ryzen 5 1600

So I figure it's better not to be GPU bound for testing different schedulers and kernels because I would be testing the CPU.

Noice! Thanks for sharing

I was using tkg-bmq.... I have switched to linux-cacule.... check that out. I am sure it is faster yet. I am interested in your results. And also the difference between tkg-cacule and linux-cacule. There are people here that have stated the tkg may have cut some things out of the kernel and it has less options available.

Is anyone having memory leaks with Tkg kernels?

CaCULE vs XanMod vs Zen, fullscreen benchmark this time, also I lowered the GPU clock speed to an OC'ed 580 grade to avoid throttling during the benchmark. I did CaCULE in the evening, the others in the morning and I don't remember if I had Spotify and discord open but not sure if that affects performance. Will repeat if not on the margin of error.

The performance lowered with no app open. Maybe the margin of error of Unigine is higher than I imagined.

Hi @binarydepth

Thanks for the benchmarks. I have question about cacule configs.
Was it cacule+rdb or just cacule?
What was the HZ rate?

Thank you

Just cacule, I don't know the configurations since I just installed the packages on the repos. You can see the kernel on "Platform" I copy paste from the Unigine HTML

No worries. I wish if you could try to add CacULE+RDB to the benchmarks please. It should be more performant than regular CacULE.

Thank you so much.

Keep in mind kernels may behave quite different on different machines, so the result might not apply for every device.

Yeah. I guess this post just gives the idea of how to benchmark the scheduler. Has to be CPU bound instead of GPU. All is open for discussion. :slight_smile:

Done, added to the top of the list since it's highest score. Next I need to run at least 10 benchmarks and sample the margin of error. New to this so have to sort how I would be more accurate.

Thank you so much.

This is Fantastic! keep up the work. Very interesting. I kinda figured that Cacule was the fastest!
