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 10MB, 100MB and 500MB files and test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds; the lower the better.
In Apophysis, the Gigabyte 890GX board finished the rendering in 30 minutes, which was the case with most of the AMD base motherboards. In the WinRAR tests, the board managed to outpace all of the other boards and had some really impressive zip compression times.
