EVGA has teamed up with the developers of Catzilla (which you may remember from our software guides) to release a special EVGA version of the popular benchmarking software.
Catzilla is a cross-API benchmark designed for OpenGL 4.0, DX9 or DX11 and Windows OSes and is a quick and comprehensive benchmarking tool which you can use to see how well your hardware will hande the latest games. This is just one of the latest companies to team up with a benchmark provider, in the past MSI sponsored the providers of 3DMark for the Deep Sea Tech Demo.
Following Catzilla’s simple 500 MB download, a PC’s hardware is tested with an epic video of two battling “Catzillas.” The video, with advanced HD graphics, fiery particle effects and explosive scenes, serves as an entertaining animated short as well as the basis for the comprehensive benchmark test. Platige Image – the award-winning 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, which takes just a few minutes, Catzilla provides instant benchmark results, and hardware and software recommendations. With just one click, users can 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 color depth and resolution. Catzilla also can recommend the latest hardware that can increase performance.
EVGA and the developers at Catzilla have put together a special EVGA version, that is available for FREE! The free version allows you to run the 720P test and compare it with others. Higher resolutions are available in the basic and advanced versions, and upgradable from within the benchmark. Download it below.
