Hello,

Is there any free software that I can use to test performance of W9100 card on Ubuntu?

I don't need to see the results in beautiful screens. Some statistics in text mode would be enough.

Here's my configuration:

Dell R720 Server with W9100 card. I'm connected to on-board display card and don't have 6 monitors to connect them to W9100. Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS has been installed and AMD proprietary driver has also been installed.

aticonfig --list-adapters lists the card.

Now I want to give a high load to W9100 to see how it performs and also how system cooling behaves.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Michal

Unigine Heaven and Vally both make video cards sweat.

Thank you Eydee

Heaven is especially great.

Now I'm looking for 2 things:

1. How to load GPU without displaying graphics (maybe some computing test)? With Heaven I need to have XOrg running and need a monitor attached to the card.

2. I can check power consumption and temperatures from system sensors. But how can I check the temperature of the GPU itself?

Thanks for any suggestions!

1. Opencl stuff may work, however, I don't know much about them, so you have to do some reasearch.

2. The aticonfig utility might give you readings. However, it might only work if X is running.

Thanks!

I've tested the card using Heaven and Valey.

Now I have two cards and wonder how to test both of them.

In AMD CCC I've enabled Xinerama to have display on both cards.

But when I run the tests only the first card is getting hot though I assume only the first card is computing graphics, the second one only serves the monitor.

How to configure the system and what tests to run to have both cards computing.
