First up are the system specific benchmarks, which will test overall scientific performance. For the science tests, only the scores paired with the PowerColor HD 4850 discrete video card are shown, to make the direct comparison to the other boards with the same setup.
To get things started, I will run 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.
WinRAR is a tool to archive and compress large files to a manageable size. We will use 10MB, 100MB, and 500MB files, as well as test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds.
The GF8200A board aced all of the tests except the 500MB transfer.
