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.
In Apophysis as well as in WinRar the Core I7 performance is markedly better than the current OCC test platform in almost all of the benchmarks. There is no difference in performance in the 10MB file transfer test using both compression methods. The performance margins are huge when comparing the two systems.
