Performance Benchmarks

'What computer do I need to run 12 layers of HD?'

'I need to send 3 videos to 3 outputs, what graphic card do I need?'

We get these questions a lot and there is no easy answer for them. Performance depends on a lot of factors, and any recommendations we make are usually outdated a week later.

So we thought we'd try a different approach: the Resolume Benchmark, patent pending.

Click here to view the results in a handy spreadsheet!


The idea is simple. You run our test compositions and content, on your own computer. You start with no clips playing and you keep triggering clips, one at a time. The moment you cannot play more clips without dropping below 30fps, you got the benchmark for that computer. Then you post results.

This way, hopefully we'll get a good overview of how well different computers perform.

You'll notice that each resolution has two benchmarks, Clean and Noise. This is done because typical VJ content is easy to compress and decompress. Photographic content is usually a bit harder to process. To give an accurate overview, we made separate test material for each type of footage.

Now let's get this benchmark party started!
Download the comps and content and mark some benches!

Benchmark files and composition for 1080p ( this is the main benchmark test, now updated with DXV3 files )
Benchmark files and composition for 4K part 1 and part 2
Benchmark files and composition for 480p

And kinda strange that this machine was better with the HD noise content then the clean content.

to be honest, I had expected better results of this monster machine!

--> interesting: with 6 clips 480p clean the framerate almost drops to 35fps, when starting another clips the fps get faster again. maybe then the GPU turns on?!
--> i usually use 800x600 clips or bigger. only a few old 480p clips have survived

didn't benchmark 640x480 as it is not 2003 any more.

I'm not quite sure what the bottleneck on this machine is, i guess GPU power to decode more? But logically we should be able to do some more on the CPU when the GPU is near capacity. Running activity monitor shows that Resolume is seriously under utilising the CPU. (50% useage - and it doesn't increase when we add some animation codec clips to the deck. I was hoping to see that I'd max out at 5 DXV but could then add 1 or two extra animation codec clips to make use of the CPU decode.) It looks like there could be some considerable gains from better CPU utilisation.

I'm really very surprised at the outcome :shock: ! Thank you for the benchmark tests Joris, I've always wondered about this! I've primarily been working 640x480 all this time but will definitely now consider going the full HD route! :)

**As noted by RenderRabbit Cosmowe, Resolume as of 4.1.8 does not yet take advantage of the dual graphics cards in this laptop, so this was based off of just one of the card's rendering...as you can see from either of our results the Alienwares seem to pair quite nicely with Resolume! :mrgreen:

I've done a slightly different benchmark, because I am interested to know how the 750M card and the integrated Iris Pro graphics compare in terms of video performance. Mavericks won't let you switch the GPU manually anymore in its preferences, but I found this app called gfxCardStatus which seem to let you do it. You can't switch off the discrete graphics card if you have an external monitor attached, so that's why I left out the 2nd display measurements for the Iris graphics. Also I didn't test 640x480 since I figured it doesn't help for this comparison.

A few remarkable observations:
* Quite a bit slower than the benchmark of Oaktown, although the only difference is 2.3 vs 2.6gHz cpu.
* Outperformed by the MackBookPro Retina Mid 2012
* Different output and GPUs setups didn't really make a difference.

Comment from Oaktown:

0x80, this is all great information but what's the point of testing a system without external displays? Testing your system without any external display would be like taking a Ferrari for a test drive while it's on 4 jacks. Unless you're going to run a show on your 15" monitor, you need to use external displays.

If you want to test the Intel Iris Pro Graphics with external displays on a Macbook Pro, you need to use a lower end Macbook Pro without a discrete GPU. But if you have a Macbook Pro with a discrete GPU (GT 750M in your case), you'll need to use that card to output graphics to your external displays and that's a good thing. Trust me, there will be a big difference between the two systems especially as you try scaling up.

I've only tested the HD benches, the 640x480 is not interesting anymore, in 4:3 I mainly use 1024x768, otherwise it's 16:9 and 1080P

So then I benched again with a different connection, not HDMI-DVI but Thunderbolt-DVI and it the results where slightly better:

And again the Windows machine has won, all and all I am deeply disappointed with the whole macbook for it's performance, the only reason I 'm keeping it is because of it's weight and I am using max. 6/7 layers of content which is not all full HD.

According to my GPU monitor there seems to be a little stress from Arena. My Adobe products utilize more.

Anyways my stuff is good enough. Now to do some real world testing.

Comment from Oaktown:

Joris, compositions are getting bigger and bigger so any chance you guys could generate a set of 2K (2048x1536) & 4K (3840x2160) benchmark media so that we can start adding that to the benchmark results?

This is the thinnest most powerful laptop to handle Resolume so well (as far as I know). My Cinebench score was 100FPS and I've had 0 hickups while working with Resolume thus far.

New benchmark using Intel 530 128GB SSD and MSI 680 Lightning and Arena 4.1.11, results are pretty much the same. i can't remember if i used an output when i first benchmarked, i think i didn't. i don't suspect the 680 to be the bottleneck, i'm still looking into it.

The second output setup is what I will actually be using consistently mainly in 720p though. I hope I can use Multi Stream Transport through the MDP. I think that this thing is great for what it is! A laptop with dual core, 2 outputs, 2 GB of graphics memory AND it has Nvidia Optimus. Best $1000 I have spent in a while(Includes 500GB SSD Upgrade)!

Only received the laptop today but.....

I am really impressed by this machine and can't wait to test it at gigs, If you want hard hitting performance check out the Clevo p751zm. Not the slimmest laptop but certainly not the biggest, happy to sacrifice the room for the desktop CPU!

Idea of size comparison, a touch slimmer than the Dell M6700 and not as wide.

Overall the Clevo P751zm is the perfect machine IMO and if you are still in the process of buying a laptop keep an eye out for the new Samsung SM951 available around march time I believe but it has up to 2,150MB/s reads, 1,550MB/s writes speeds ! Mental stuff.

Promises, promises! ;)

In addition to 4K resolutions (3840x2400 preferred), it'd be great to get some additional benchmark content in both 2560x1600 and 5120×2880.

Comment from Joris:

I've added two zips containing DXV3 files and comp for benchmarking 3840x2160. Also I've updated the 1080p folder with DXV3 encoded files.

Just did a quick test on the new 1080p DXV3 files and my 2008 Mac Pro went from 5 to 8 layers on clean and from 3 to 5 layers on noise. What a difference a codec can make.

Got around to installing the Titan X in my main machine. Running this with a couple display port splitters and 1 GTX 780 (until my Datapath x4 and extra screen get installed). It does quite well.

The Titan X only supports 4 monitors, hence the splitters and extra card. For some reason, adding the second card will only allow 5 monitors (when connected to second card). Once I installed the SLI bridge (even though SLI is turned off) I can connect a 6th screen.

No visible tearing on any of the stuff I normally run, didn't really look to hard when running benchmark. I will run it again tomorrow and record my feed to my Tricaster for better analysis.

Turning Vsync off is part of the reason I get such high framerates. I have tried turning it on, but anything I load starts at 30fps

What did you pay for your little wonder? I read the review and it really sounds promising.

What made you choose the 970M 6GB over the 980M 8GB?

Comment from cosmowe:

No.....till now I don't need it.

What did you pay for your little wonder? I read the review and it really sounds promising.

2400€

What made you choose the 970M 6GB over the 980M 8GB?

Simply the price....my goal was to refund the notebook with a single job. And in mind that the technology will show up with something much more powerfull in two years than the 980m and the i7 skylake. How many 4k jobs do you have in a year?......I had one in 2015 which really really needs a 4 k output.....and i solved it with a pandoras box....... So.....thats the reason.
There will be much more in the future.....but at last in the vj business. I try to think a little bit about the money.

Mac Pro late 2013, OSX 10.9.5
Dual AMD FirePro d700
6 core Xeon E5
16GB ram
resolume 5.0.2
gui at 2560x1440 via thunderbolt
one 1920x1200 output via thunderbolt to DVI adapter

4k clean: 6 layers
4k noise: 6 layers

but seeing the usual not smooth playback, 2 noise or 3 clean layers play smoothly.

*edit*...

answered my own question

Comment from A.P.E:

Model: Custom Desktop
Operating System: Windows 10
GPU: Dual Nvidia GTX 1080, 8GB
Harddisk: Hellfire SSD m2, 240 GB. SSHD 2 TB
Processor: Intel 6700k Skylake
Memory: 32GB RAM
Resolume: 5.1.3

Output Setup: 1 Control Monitor at 1366x768, 4 Fullscreen Outputs at 1920x1080

Benchmark 1920x1080
Minimal content: 20+ layers
Noise content: 20+ layers

Note:
Running on SLI gives more FPS. An additional 10 FPS on Clean contents and 5 FPS on Noise contents. Tested on Surround mode (7680 x 1080)

In my opinion, single GTX 1080 (non SLI) is more than enough to handle all the graphic process for resolume. I have tested for 6 outputs (mixed output resolutions 1024x768, 1920x1080) and 1 Control monitor (1920x1080) the compositions (1920x1080) was loaded with 10 layers of Full HD DXV contents with audio (and 6 effects on each clip), 20 effects on composition and still managed to get a stable 59-60 FPS without SLI enabled.

Model: Lenovo Thinkpad W530
OS: Windows 10 64 Bit
CPU: i7-3840QM @ 2,8 GHz
RAM: 32 GB
GPU: Quadro K2000M + Intel HD Graphics 4000 (Opteron)
SSD (OS and Arena 5.0.2): Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250 GB
SSD (Content): Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250 GB (Second one)

Monitors:
Internal @ 1920x1080
External @ 1920x1080 HDMI

Results:

HD 4000
480p - Clean 20+ Noise 20+
1080p - Clean 2 Noise 2

Quadro K2000M:

480p - Clean 20+ Noise 20+
1080p - Clean 8 Noise 6

(Sidenote: I've seen Thinkpads with Quadro GPUs which had far worse results, maybe they ran Resolume with the internal graphic chip?)

Comment from najrock:

Just tested a brand new 2016 macbook pro

no monitor in play... but I do think the high res screen sucks up some of your juice. I am going to test it with a datapath inline and some UHD content streaming out eventually just for shits n giggles

4k got 3 layers before hovering around 30

HD got around 11 or 12 before it started plunging

not the greatest for almost $4000 :shock:

while I was fantasizing about something a bit better I can not say I am surprised... I was really hoping to be able to snag one for this summers festival season... the keyboard and the touch swipe I gotta say I really love... but I'll stick to the PC's for now

maybe the next go will have proper graphics. also this is totally useable for guys running around with 1920x1080 and busking stacks of two or three clips or a synced DJ show... honestly I never use more than 4 layers really

so I guess its on the user to decide if form beats function in the apple world this year

Comment from lw200293:

@cosmowe this might be a stupid question

I'm looking at building a system similar to yours, i found your input in the spreadsheet and can see the cost was 3500, is that EUR?

Thanks!

Comment from cosmowe:

hey lw200293,
yes...that are euros....if you build it now...it will get cheaper i guess

best wishes!
