Black Mesa packshot image
Black Mesa (previously known as Black Mesa: Source) is a planned third-party total conversion modification for Valve Corporation's Source Engine. The stated goal of the project was to recreate Valve's critically acclaimed 1998 video game Half-Life using the more advanced capabilities of the Source Engine. The 40-person development team said they hoped to create a more engrossing in-game world with more varied, complex environments and more challenging, realistic gameplay.
Black Mesa GPU Frames Per Second Chart

Our objective is to build an accurate Black Mesa frame rate chart that lets PC gamers select from any Nvidia or AMD graphics card series. In this beta feature we provide Black Mesa FPS data, displayed based on a default screen resolution of 1080p.

Premium members can adjust the charts game graphics settings and select multiple graphics card series for frame rate comparison. For example, if you want to quickly compare frame rates for Black Mesa between AMD Radeon RX-500 Series versus FPS for Nvidia’s GeForce 20 Series, then you can see those results displayed below.

Black Mesa User Submitted Frame Per Second Results

Our next development is focused on incorporating our bespoke machine learning code that continues to enhance these Black Mesa frames per second results as more and more of you (PC gamers) submit your own frame rates. Submitted frame rates will automatically be processed, removing anomalies and building increasingly reliable game FPS from all the good data until the performance graph above is pinpoint accurate. The more benchmarks you submit, the more confident we can be in the FPS prediction data across all games and hardware.
