Idea gained from Weekly torch, a benchmark function

So I was reading through the additional answers of the weekly torch today and one question made me think.

Because Warhorse is a relative small game developer and they need a lot more testers to make sure the game runs decent on everyone’s computers.
Isn’t it possible to release some kind of benchmark that runs through a separate level and sends the information to Warhorse?

Now, two points that pose problems:
1, I don’t know how feasible it is to create a benchmark. It would take time away from actual development and might not be worth it.
2, the sending information bit… I can understand not everyone wants a program to collect information about your machine and sending it to a company on the other side of the world.

Again, most likely the benchmark option is a waste of time and not feasible. (Then again a lot of games have a separate benchmark option to test which setting you can best play at.)
But there must be some way we can help Warhorse with this problem?
