how to benchmark

i have read a loooot of topics on this forum that talk about benchmarking their projects. how do u do this? how do u benchmark? do u use the software listed on this site (viewperf, glperf…) or do u use someother method?

You measure time and count frames drawn. Then you divide the frames drawn by the time taken in seconds to draw them over a period of time to get frames per second. It’s very simple.

You cannot use 3rd party benchmarks for your software, they measure the content and code of those benchmarks, not your code.
