GPUBench Test: Readback

Back to Main Page
Readback measures the rate at which data can be read back to CPU host memory as obtained from glReadPixels using both fixed and floating point 4-component buffer formats. Both RGBA and ABGR layouts are tested. The argument --size specifies the dimensions of the buffer to read back from. Additional options allow the user to specific various fixed and floating point formats. The entire buffer is read back into host memory.
