This benchmark stresses the pixel pipelines by rendering a scene with soft shadows using a 7x7 kernel filter. The benchmark uses an OpenGL 2.0 codepath as well as OpenGL Shading Language shaders to render the soft shadows. You can enable or disable dynamic branching in the pixel shader in order to see the impact on the performances. Very handy to quickly benchmark a graphics card.
