Lowest Prices




We'll start 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.


Lower is Better


We can see that the extra L2 cache helps the 6000+ finish the render over three minutes faster than the 5000+ BE clocked at 3.0GHz and almost a full minute quicker even with the 5000+ clocked at 3.2GHz.



WinRAR is a tool to archive and compress large files to a manageable size. We will use 10MB, 100MB and 500MB files and test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds.



The 5000+ BE just powers through the compression testing when overclocked.
