In contrast to many synthetic benchmarks, the Sequality Embedded GPU benchmark tries to incorporate typical requirements from automotive or industry software in the benchmark. This is the reason why the first 3 steps are based on the Sequality Automotive UX demo application that we also used to perform our first benchmark-tests in 2020. The benchmark steps are:
- 1 – Optimized Cockpit: The optimized version of the Sequality Automotive UX software is executed and analysed. Only the instrument-cluster part was taken for this part
- 2 – 2D Cockpit Multiple Images: A special version of the instrument cluster with multiple bigger PNG images that have big transparent areas is used. This step was intruduced as we noticed, that some SoCs (like i.Mx6 ) had big frame drops if you load multiple bigger PNG images.
- 3 – 2D Cockpit Animated: The tacho needles are additionally animated in this step.
- 4 – 3D Model: 3D models are loaded and animated.
- 5 – Kinetic Scrolling: Lists of various sizes are loaded and a kinetic-scrolling gesture is simulated.
The result of the benchmark is presented at the end of the fully automated benchmark-run: There is one overall score that is computed based on the maximum number of frames that ideally are generated (60 FPS * duration of benchmark in seconds). Each benchmark step is presented with a benchmark score as well. Additionally, you get the following graphical statistics that can be related to each individual benchmark step:
- CPU Temperature
- Frames per Second
- CPU Usage [%]
- Free memory [MB]
- Frame Time [ms]
- Render Time [µs]
- Sync Time [µs]
