First up are the system specific benchmarks that will test overall scientific performance.
To get things stated, I will begin with Apophysis. This program is used primarily to render and generate fractal flame images. We will run this benchmark with the following settings:
- Resolution: 2750x2048
- Quality: 500
- Limit Memory Use: 512MB
The measurement used is time to render, in minutes, to complete.
WinRAR is a tool to archive and compress large files to a manageable size. We will use 10MB, 100MB, and 500MB files, as well as test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds.
The Sapphire 770 board was faster than the Geforce 8300 and just about tied with the Foxconn board in Apophysis. The results in the WinRAR testing swing back and forth with the Sapphire ahead in one out of six tests but tied for the top spot in two.
