The system tests we will be using are listed below:
- Apophysis 2.02
- SpecView 10
- PCMark 05 Professional
- Sisoft Sandra XII
- ScienceMark 2.0
- CineBench 10
- HDTune 2.53
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
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 compression time for the 500MB file was impressive. The benchmark was ran numerous times (each time deleting the file, clearing temp folders and restarting the system) to ensure validity.
