EVGA has teamed up with ALLBenchmark, the developer of the Catzilla benchmark, to release an official EVGA version, available here.
Catzilla, a cross-API benchmark designed for OpenGL 4.0 and DirectX 9 or 11, and Windows operating systems (64-bit and 32-bit Windows 8, 7, XP, and Vista), is a quick, comprehensive benchmarking program that uses algorithms found in the latest PC video games, so users can see how their PCs will handle the most demanding games.
Following Catzilla’s download, a PC’s hardware is tested with a video of two battling “Catzillas”. The video, with HD graphics, particle effects and explosive scenes, serves as the basis for the comprehensive benchmark test. Platige Image – the studio behind graphics seen in several video games, commercials, animations and films, including The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077 – created the artwork in the Catzilla video.
After the test Catzilla provides benchmark results, and hardware and software recommendations. The software then enables users to tweak their PC settings for more “oomph”. This includes installing the latest drivers, setting the appropriate amount of cache, increasing free disk space, and changing the colour depth and resolution. Catzilla also can recommend the latest hardware that can increase performance.
The free EVGA version of the Catzilla benchmark allows users to run the 720p test and compare it with others. Higher resolution EVGA versions of the Catzilla benchmark are also available in the basic and advanced versions. Users can upgrade to higher resolution versions from within the benchmark itself.
