LuxRender releases LuxMark 1.0, an OpenCL based path tracing benchmark for GPU and/or CPU

Wonderful little program, which is able to run entirely on the GPU, but can also run on CPU only or on both CPU and GPU:

It would be really awesome if a real-time pathtraced dynamic benchmark like this one ( could be included in LuxMark, where users can interactively control the number of samples per pixel and the path length with sliders (just like in Tokap) and can interact with the physics as well. It's perfectly possible to path trace the scene from the OpenCL path tracing video in real-time and it would give LuxRender and its OpenCL path tracing effort some much deserved awareness!
