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 and test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds.
The P5Q was beaten in just about all of the tests. In Apophysis, the P5Q was 2 minutes slower rendering the fractal flame image. In the WinRAR testing, as the file size grew larger, the time differential increased. In the ZIP part of the testing, the 100MB file was compressed 1 second faster.
