In the words of the author … Why ShaderToyMark? Simply because I recently played with the pixel shaders available with Shader Toy, a great WebGL tool for testing GLSL shaders. And I said to myself: that would be nice to see several of these shaders running at the same time in the same 3D window… ShaderToyMark was born.
The contributors of Shader Toy are all famous demomakers and their shaders are real gems. It’s just amazing to see what can clever people do with some sin/cos and other math tricks.
Again, the nVidia GTX580 comes out on top, but there is a price difference. Quick calculation shows us that the nVidia card is 34% faster but costs 43% more. Insert your favourite comment about swings and roundabouts here.
