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.
The Apophysis results are on par with the rest of the group. When overclocked, it takes 7 minutes less time to render the OCC flame image. WinRAR is a mixed bunch with the Gigabyte board floating around in the group; while overclocked, it wins all tests.
