What is it?And what does it mean?

Making me rethink my GPU for my proposed rig.Here it is:http://store.steampowered.com/app/267130/?snr=1_software_4__103_1
I mean thats a.....................l...o...t..... of units on screen. Can anyone explain what that is?I've seen the video but didn't see this until today.(Help me!''Slaps self'',so yeah!)

It's just a benchmark. It stresses your GPU/CPU to show what it can do. The more FPS you get, the more capable your system. Most people around here use stuff like Unigine Heaven, Unigine Valley, and 3dMark for GPU benchmarking.

How much does it stress it?

My guess is, 100%.

EDIT: Allow me to elaborate. These types of programs are not designed to run at any level of stress lower than 100%. Just like most other benchmarks, it is just a 100% stress-method of comparing your computer's performance to another computer's performance. You can also just demo your system on that specific game engine to see how well it runs on your configuration.

look at your monitor and see how much GPU and CPU usage is at...

that will answer your question

The Star Swarm Stress Test is a benchmark which runs both on DX-11 and AMD's Mantle API. It is designed to show the difference in performance between DX-11 and the Mantle API.

It's designed to show you the way that Mantle can eliminate the CPU bottleneck when lots of units are present, with individual AIs.

Its amazing.Maybe AMD CPUs will take the lead in future RTS(wait,Mantle is compatible with Intel,right?).

Mantle works with the GPU, so yes it is compatible with Intel, the benefit it give AMD in the market, is that their CPUs are priced cheaper, so you can get 'same level performance' with and AMD GPU & CPU for less than an AMD GPU and Intel CPU.

But it's down to the GPU architecture.
