The first part of our testing regimen will be the system specific benchmarks.
Let's get started 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
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 Apophysis testing did not show the X48 chipped P5E3 to be any faster than the other boards. The WinRAR testing was another story. When compressing the 10MB files, the performance was equal across the board. Once the file size increased, the P5E3 Premium took a the lead in all but one of the tests.
