Testing:

The first part of our testing 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 100MB and 500MB files to test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds. Additionally, I will use the built in benchmark as a comparison.

In all of the tests here, the Athlon II X4 640 showed improvement over the Athlon II X4 635 it replaces. It still isn't as fast as some of the higher end quad core processors with larger cache.
