OctaneBench allows you to benchmark your GPU using OctaneRender.
This provides a level playing field by making sure that everybody uses the same version and the same scenes and settings.
Without these constraints, benchmark results can vary a lot and can't be compared.
The hardware and software requirements to run OctaneBench are the same as for OctaneRender Standalone.
You can find details in the OctaneRender FAQ here
OctaneBench does not require an OctaneRender Standalone License to run.
You can download and run OctaneBench as one single package or just download the resources and use them with your current OctaneRender Standalone. All the details about how to run OctaneBench can be found in the readme file
