To kick off the testing, we're going to start with system benchmarks.
Apophysis is the first test that I'll be running. I'm going to use this program to generate and render our custom fractal flame image. Below you can find the settings that I used:
- Resolution: 2750x2048
- Quality: 500
- Limit Memory use: 512MB
I recorded the time, in minutes, that it took to render the image.
Lower is Better
WinRAR is up next. I will use 10MB, 100MB and 500MB files and recording the time it takes to collapse them into more manageable sizes. The results are in seconds, so lower is better.
Looks like we're going to have ourselves a close match!
