There are lots of PC benchmarking tools out there, sure. They give you your framerate and test all sorts of different aspects of your PC’s visual-creating strength, definitely. But how many of them feature giant cats – Catzilla, if you will – blowing up cities?
Well, now there’s one. ALLBenchmark’s Catzilla does exactly that, testing your computer to its limits by simulating a giant furry abomination blasting a city to hell with flaming laser eyes. There’s… really not much else to say. If that hasn’t already enticed you to go and try it out, I don’t think I’ll ever convince you.
It’s worth noting, though, that it’s sort of free. The basic benchmarking is totally free, and you can unlock a 720p benchmark and the ability to compare your score to others simply by registering, which is also free. Everything after that, though – 1080p (and higher) benchmarking, recommendations for how to improve performance, custom tests – costs money.
Still, you can watch giant death cats blowing up a city for free. That’s got to be worth the (lack of) admission price, surely?
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
