Catzilla is a cross-API (OpenGL 4.0 and DirectX 9/11) benchmark designed the Windows platform, and is also featuring a parallel graphics engine that can take advantage of multi-core CPUs.

Benchmark consists of the main demoscene-style dubstep-heavy giant cat fight scene, which stresses both CPU and GPU, and a set of smaller benchmarks ?? CPU rigid body physics, GPU smoke simulation, fur rendering, etc.

As interesting note, Catzilla uses PhysX SDK 3.2 as physics engine, however, it is running purely on CPU (as confirmed (http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=4484079&postcount=98) by one of the developers).
