An introduction to FCAT benchmarking – Article

Benchmarking Graphics Processors – The New Style

The past couple of months, we have seen some interesting dynamics in measuring the framerate of your games versus graphics cards. Basically the framerate of your game is, simply put, the number of frames per second your computer and graphics card are able to render. It is the most common way of looking at graphics card and game performance really.

There’s a problem that started floating at the surface for a while now, FPS does not say much as to what you see and experience on screen thus on your monitor, in certain conditions you can get a little stuttering every now and then. E.g. FPS will not say a thing about graphics anomalies. Up-to a while ago nobody really cared that, and some of you perhaps think that is the best way to approach this. Do you really care of you see a small stutter every now and then for a fraction of a second maybe split-second? The answer to that is two fold. Some of you, the more enthusiast end users, do while other’s don’t. And as such lately we have seen websites posting frame-capture and frame time results.

Being trendy – websites jumped onto it and are using FRAPS, but the thing is. if you want to expose game stutters you probably should not use FRAPS. Here’s why:

FRAPS measures directly at the game engine, and that’s different from what you see on screen on your monitor. For FPS that is not really relevant, but if you want to measure frametime then at the end of the graph shown above T_Display is where you need to be. See, a lot of other stuff is happening after FRAPS measures. Now realistically for single graphics cards, measuring frametime (or as what like to call, frame experience) FRAPS is sufficient. However in multi-GPU setups FRAPs just does not detect all information and as such a lot simply does not show up, in the created charts that many websites including ourselves have been demonstrating.

It will get even weirder as it also works vice versa, sometimes FRAPS records stuff that isn’t visibly there on your monitor. To do frametime recordings right (the proper way) we need to take a more academic approach. not measure at Game engine level, but at the monitor output as that is the hotspot as to what you see on your screen. How can we accomplish that? Well, with a framegrabber and a complex software suite which we’ll be showing and introducing today. It is called FCAT, short for Frame Capture Analysis Tool. It is a set of tools that derives from the NVIDIA performance laboratory. Now please don’t throw objectivity and subjectivity concerns at us as yes, this methodology is coming from NVIDIA. Let me state upfront that pretty much all software and scripts can be read out as source code and the simple truth is that the FCAT benchmark method can’t see the difference in-between AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards as we look at rendered frames, we are not measuring inside the graphics card(s).

Before you read onwards, this article is more a bit more scientific, complex and academic opposed to what you are used to. This is not everybody’s cup of tea alright. But I wanted to show what we are doing and how we are doing it as transparant as can be. Now then, our FCAT solution requires multiple thousands EUR worth of hardware and is not something you can easily recreate at home. I also left a lot out in terms of complex issues and will take a very simple to understand approach, which hopefully, the majority of you guys and girls can understand. This article is a first in sense that it is an introduction to added benchmarks you are going to see integrated in Guru3D GPU reviews.

Let’s first discuss a little about FPS vs Frametime, the methods and challenges ahead.

Fastest Way to become an RN

Here are some of my questions I need opinions and Former RN’s to help with this:

1) Is it easier to become a CNA then apply to Nursing school and try to get in?

2) Is it easier to become an LPN then apply to a Nursing school and try to be accepted?

3) Whats the most efficient and fast way of becoming a RN?

I was thinking about going for my CNA in Jan. of 2008 and hopefully transfering to a nursing school in Fall of 2008. Or is it better to go and find a school for a 2 year degree in LPN or RN then becoming an RN? Any info would be deeply appreciated.

A typical student who goes for a BSN in nursing will take 3.5-4 years.

My situations is this, I am in a private university, no such things as a wait list, more expensive. I started in April of this year, 2007, and will be completed and ready for my NCLEX by June 2009. This includes ALL my pre reqs. Had I already had my pre reqs, I could complete our program in 18 months. I will have my ASN, associates of science in nursing, and be an RN, after I pass NCLEX. Now at that point I will be 2 years into schooling and be an RN. I will take my BSN classes online, as my school offers this as well, this will take 1 more year. and in 3 years time I will have my BSN in nursing. WAY Faster then traditional method. PLUS the last year I will be working and making money, and gaining experience while getting my BSN.

Good luck in what you decide to do.

In my opinion, it would be a waste of time to become a CNA, (unless you just want to work in the nursing arena). You still have to take your prerequisite classes, such as, English, Algebra, World history, Anatomy Physiology, Microbiology etc. You have to complete these core classes with satisfactory grades before taking the NET or Nurse Entrance Test. None of the credits from a CNA program will transfer, but some credits from the LPN program does transfer, it depends on your school. Also an LPN is not a degree program, it is a licencse to practice nursing in your state, you receive a diploma or certificate. My advice is to aim for the top, become an RN.

I can reply to this message on a more personal level. I graduated from a four year school Dec 2005. Couldn’t get a job in my field to save my life. I first thought I wanted to be a teacher, but after even struggling with that decision, I decided to pursue nursing which is something I wanted to do while in school the first go around. Getting there was the problem. It was the middle of the Fall 2006 semester when I decided to got to nursing school. I couldn’t apply for admission into a new school until Spring of 07. My crazy self decided that I could go to the community college, become a CNA (which is now a requirement before they’ll even accept you into an ADN program) then start my pre reqs over the summer. I took general psyc over the summer since I got a D on it during my first degree and a D won’t transfer. I’m now at this school that offers an Accelerated BSN program for those with a degree in a field other than nursing. The program will take 13 months to complete. Basically, if I were you and was planning on applying to an ADN program, I would become a CNA first, especially if it’s a requirement. If you’re planning on going to a four year school, I wouldn’t worry about the NA certification because they’ll certify you after a few semesters into the program. It does help to be a CNA because you’d have relevent experience. But if you don’t want to waste the time to become certified, you could be a volunteer. I just started working as a CNA after being certified in March. I work at a teaching hospital which is cool. I just learned that they have a CNA program that allows you get certified in 2 WEEKS. The program I enrolled in at the community college took 2 MONTHS. As far as the whole LPN thing goes, I probably wouldn’t even waste my time. I’ve been doing some research and from what I’ve read less and less hospitals are hiring LPN’s but if you plan to work at maybe a prison, or a rest home then go for it.

Wow I really like that method. I wish that was available everywhere.

It really depends on the school you go to.

I have heard others on the board state that their school requires you become a CNA first or give you extra points if you do.

Others schools do not care, won’t even ask that on the application so having it is just a big waste of time. They will not give you extra points or any advantage for doing it.

So pick a school out and work on the requirments that the school you want to go to has.

As far as a LPN it will not help you get into RN school. If you go that route you will have to take pre reqs for the LPN program, and then get accepted, and its tough to get into just like the RN programs. Then once in most take a year, and you will get a certificate. Then you will have to go back to CC and take more pre reqs and reapply to an RN bridge program, get accepted and do that before getting a degree, and sitting for the state exam. Its actually a much longer road.

I know this thread is old but what school was that where you became an rn in 3 years and then took 1 year to have a bsn??Am I correct when I say to become an rn with a bsn it takes 6 years??is that how it works.

What does RN-BSN mean? (Confused)

3 I’m a high school student who aspires to become a nurse and later on a nurse practitioner. Because of this, I want to get my Bachelor’s first, (not ADN) and then move on from there. I obviously need to do my pre-reqs and all that but I’m confused about the path of becoming a RN.

I’m confused on the meaning of RN-BSN. Does this mean that when you are a registered nurse, you go get your bachelors? That doesn’t make sense to me because I thought you needed your Bachelor’s to become an RN.

I’m graduating high school this year and interested in becoming an RN(hopefully an NP later on in the future) but I’m confused on how to go about this.

I hear some folks say that nursing school IS a 4-year college, but some say that you go to a 4-year school, complete your pre-reqs THEN apply to a nursing school. Which is it?

I know my questions seem pretty simple to some but I really want to try to make the best decisions and take the best routes to help me in my future career.

I went on several websites and they say that this program is for people who already are RN’s. I don’t understand this. I thought if you want your Bachelors, you go to a RN-BSN program?

RN to BSN: Success Stories

Last edit by Joe V on Feb 15, ’17

The routes of nursing that pertain to your situation and questions:

1) RN program – usually at a community college or vocational school. Such programs earn you the qualification to sit for an RN license. If at a community college, you probably also earn an associate’s degree at the same time. ASN (Associates of science in nursing). There are also still a few diploma schools out there which are hospital based programs that grant ability to sit for RN licensure. RN programs tend to take 3 years. Either 3 straight years, or 1 year of pre-reqs and 2 years of full-time coursework.

2) RN-BSN program – through a university. Either 4 years of integrated general education, nursing education or 2 years of pre-reqs/gen ed and then 2 years of nursing education, both ending in a bachelor’s degree (Bachelor of science in nursing BSN) along with qualification to sit for RN licensure.

For those who earned their RN directly, there are programs out there specifically for them to earn a BSN (RN-to-BSN), usually 1-2 years.

You might wonder why one would choose option 1 over option 2 since option two is only one year longer and gets you a bachelor’s as well. One reason might be that community colleges are usually less expensive than universities. Another is that community colleges are more likely to offer part-time coursework or alternate schedules for those working full-time jobs.

Finally, each school has it’s own strengths and weaknesses and each student has their own strengths and weaknesses. One school might be well known for structure and if a student knows they do well with structure they might decide to choose that school. If a local school is well-known for training up confident, competent nurses, someone might choose that one over a big name university with new, unproven nursing program.

Good luck with your schooling decisions!

Last edit by jjjoy on Dec 31, ’07

Thanks to everyone who has replied to this thread. I was in the same state of confusion. I am presently going throtugh a 3 year program to earn an RN, By next year i’ll be an RN here in Nigeria. however i intend coming over to the USA to obtain a Bsc in Nursing.
Can anyone recommend a good University and tell the me the requirement?
Thanks.

– I went on severel websites and they say that this program is for people who already are RN’s. I don’t understand this. I thought if you want your Bachelors, you go to a RN-BSN program?

there are programs at 4 year colleges/universities that after 4 years, you are an RN with your BSN.

There are many different means to RN-BSN. 1) An person which has a Bachelors of Science in another field can do what they call and bridge program and become an RN. 2) An LPN which desires to further his/her nursing career and continue their studies instead of starting from the beginning 3) An RN which has either a diploma or Associates degree can obtain her Bachelor’s.
And to answer your other part of your question about what direction to go in Nursing, according to what the profession states when you have and Associate Degree you are just considered a technical nurse and with a Bachelors you are a Professional Nurse . Even though when you get your license it will Registered Professional Nurse. Word to the wise, choose the path that works best for you, do not become stressed out and regardless of a big name school or a community college, we are all taught the same things and are all considered nurse. GOD LUCK. spin:

Here are some of the outrageous cars coming to this year s Geneva Motor Show

Press days for this year’s Geneva Motor Show officially kick off tomorrow, March 3rd — but many of the announcements have already started to trickle out. By all appearances, it’s going to be a hell of a show.

Here’s just a small taste of the insanity: Aston Martin will be unveiling its most outrageous production car ever, Lamborghini is showing an even hotter version of the blistering Aventador, and Mercedes-Benz appears to have gone full YOLO with a lemon-lime Geländewagen that’s been tricked out with enough offroading hardware to survive the surface of Mars.

Sure, why not?

Anyway, have a peek here at a few of the announcements ahead of press days — and get ready, because we’ll be reporting from the show floor tomorrow and Wednesday.

Hint: Use the ‘s’ and ‘d’ keys to navigate

b Audi R8. /b The next generation of Audi’s supercar doesn’t look much different than the model it replaces, but make no mistake — there’s a thoroughly new car underneath. Most interesting is the bespoke R8 e-tron, an all-electric version that has greater capacity and range than the Tesla Model S.

b Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce. /b Take the Aventador — already one of the most beautiful and outrageous production cars on the road today — add 50 horsepower, and remove over 100 pounds of fat. That’s this.

b Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale. /b After a ten-year run, Bugatti is writing its legendary hypercar’s final chapter with the appropriately named La Finale.

b Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6. /b Bentley points to its EXP 10 Speed 6 as a new direction in styling for the luxury marque, and it’s clearly more swoopy and svelte than anything the company currently offers. It’s a concept car, but it hints at a possible new model line — a sports car that would fit alongside the Continental GT coupe rather than replace it.

b Aston Martin Vulcan. /b There will only be 24 of these track-only beasts offered, featuring a V12 engine good for over 800 horsepower. It looks like nothing else Aston Martin has ever made.

b Lexus LF-SA. /b Don’t be fooled by the name: leaks suggest that the LF-SA has absolutely nothing to do with Lexus’ LFA supercar. Instead, the LF-SA is a compact hatch that previews new styling elements for the brand.

b Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4 sup 2 /sup . /b The 4×4 sup 2 /sup is designed to be the baddest-ass four-wheeler that Mercedes has ever offered, and judging from this picture, I see no reason to believe otherwise.

It promises a 0-60 run in just 2.8 seconds, but the science behind the car is still under development — and the infrastructure to refuel it doesn’t exist.

Where to Buy

Some good places to buy a used car include car dealerships, private parties and automobile websites. Each seller has advantages and disadvantages, but the most important thing is to do your due diligence before purchasing any used car.

Dealers

If you re in the market for a used car, you probably know you have quite a number of options, not only in the cars themselves but in the sellers. Most car dealerships sell used cars along with new cars. The advantage of buying from a car dealership is usually the dealership employs mechanics to service all used cars before re-selling, so you can have a little more confidence that you won t end up in the shop right after buying the car. Plus, dealers will often provide you with limited service warranties on certain repairs. Unfortunately for you, car dealerships have experienced salesm e n with high overhead, so it s much harder to negotiate a good deal.

Private Party

Buying a used car from a private part y often results in a lower sale price than you get at a dealership. Plus, private parties often maintain their own service records which give you a better sense of the car s maintenance history. The problem with buying from private parties, though, is that you don t really know who you re dealing with and you run a higher risk of buying a lemon.

Websites

There are also a number of websites that broker used car sales. Websites make it faster and more convenient to look for a used car, but you ll still need to do some personal inspection and research before buying your used car.

Here’s just a small taste of the insanity: Aston Martin will be unveiling its most outrageous production car ever, Lamborghini is showing an even hotter version of the blistering Aventador, and Mercedes-Benz appears to have gone full YOLO with a lemon-lime Geländewagen that’s been tricked out with enough offroading hardware to survive the surface of Mars.

Sure, why not?

Anyway, have a peek here at a few of the announcements ahead of press days — and get ready, because we’ll be reporting from the show floor tomorrow and Wednesday.

Hint: Use the ‘s’ and ‘d’ keys to navigate

b Audi R8. /b The next generation of Audi’s supercar doesn’t look much different than the model it replaces, but make no mistake — there’s a thoroughly new car underneath. Most interesting is the bespoke R8 e-tron, an all-electric version that has greater capacity and range than the Tesla Model S.

b Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce. /b Take the Aventador — already one of the most beautiful and outrageous production cars on the road today — add 50 horsepower, and remove over 100 pounds of fat. That’s this.

b Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse La Finale. /b After a ten-year run, Bugatti is writing its legendary hypercar’s final chapter with the appropriately named La Finale.

b Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6. /b Bentley points to its EXP 10 Speed 6 as a new direction in styling for the luxury marque, and it’s clearly more swoopy and svelte than anything the company currently offers. It’s a concept car, but it hints at a possible new model line — a sports car that would fit alongside the Continental GT coupe rather than replace it.

b Aston Martin Vulcan. /b There will only be 24 of these track-only beasts offered, featuring a V12 engine good for over 800 horsepower. It looks like nothing else Aston Martin has ever made.

b Lexus LF-SA. /b Don’t be fooled by the name: leaks suggest that the LF-SA has absolutely nothing to do with Lexus’ LFA supercar. Instead, the LF-SA is a compact hatch that previews new styling elements for the brand.

b Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×4 sup 2 /sup . /b The 4×4 sup 2 /sup is designed to be the baddest-ass four-wheeler that Mercedes has ever offered, and judging from this picture, I see no reason to believe otherwise.

b NanoFlowCell Quant F. /b This is a follow-up to the Quant E shown at last year’s Geneva show from NanoFlowCell, a Liechtenstein-based start-up that’s working on a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_battery” target=”_blank” flow battery /a drivetrains. It promises a 0-60 run in just 2.8 seconds, but the science behind the car is still under development — and the infrastructure to refuel it doesn’t exist.

Where to Buy

Some good places to buy a used car include car dealerships, private parties and automobile websites. Each seller has advantages and disadvantages, but the most important thing is to do your due diligence before purchasing any used car.

Dealers

If you re in the market for a used car, you probably know you have quite a number of options, not only in the cars themselves but in the sellers. Most car dealerships sell used cars along with new cars. The advantage of buying from a car dealership is usually the dealership employs mechanics to service all used cars before re-selling, so you can have a little more confidence that you won t end up in the shop right after buying the car. Plus, dealers will often provide you with limited service warranties on certain repairs. Unfortunately for you, car dealerships have experienced salesm e n with high overhead, so it s much harder to negotiate a good deal.

Private Party

Buying a used car from a private part y often results in a lower sale price than you get at a dealership. Plus, private parties often maintain their own service records which give you a better sense of the car s maintenance history. The problem with buying from private parties, though, is that you don t really know who you re dealing with and you run a higher risk of buying a lemon.

Websites

There are also a number of websites that broker used car sales. Websites make it faster and more convenient to look for a used car, but you ll still need to do some personal inspection and research before buying your used car.
