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; the lower the better.
In Apophysis, the ECS A890GXM motherboard took 30 seconds to complete the render, which was tied with the fastest AMD results. In the WinRAR test, the ECS board did very well when it came to Zip compression, but the RAR compression tests had it running equal to the other boards.
