About CrystalDiskMark Retro

CrystalMark Retro is a comprehensive benchmarking software that supports 32bit (x86), 64bit (x64/ARM64), many-core, and multilingual (48+ languages).
CPU, disk, 2D graphics (GDI), and 3D graphics (OpenGL) performance can be measured with a single click.
*Much of the benchmark code is a brushed-up version based on CrystalMark 2004.

Aoi Edition will give you a voice judgement of your results at the end of the benchmark! Be careful with the volume…

OpenGL benchmarks were produced by koinec following CrystalMark 2004.

Release note

We released CrystalMark Retro on March 31, 2024, exactly 20 years after the release of CrystalMark 2004.

The internal version of CrystalMark 2004 is “0.9,” and I have been wanting to release 1.0 for a long time, and finally I was able to achieve it. I am very happy, although it is very different from the 1.0 version that I had originally envisioned. I would like to thank all the users around the world who have continued to support us and make this day possible.

We hope that CrystalMark Retro will be used by users around the world for 10, 20, and 30 years.

The evolution of GPUs and 3D graphics is tremendous, and unfortunately, Sunday programmers can’t compete with the latest breathtaking 3D benches, but they can trump even hardware that is a few years old if they are not very good.
CrystalMark Retro, on the other hand, as the name implies, values the ability to measure everything from 20-year-old internal video cards to the latest GPUs equally. We hope that the results of CrystalMark Retro will give you a sense of the evolution of today’s GPUs, and how slow the hardware of 2024 will be.
