Testing:

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. Additionally, I will use the built in benchmark as a comparison.

Bibble 5:

 

In Apophysis, the 980X delivers a result two minutes faster than the similarly clocked i5 661 and a minute faster than the Core i7 965. The WinRar testing shows the advantage of another two cores over the i7 965 by knocking of a third of the time it took the 965 to complete the tasks. The Bibble 5 results show that the additional two cores and 4mb of cache show a more than substantial advantage for the Corei7 980X. When overclocked it is nearly twice as fast as the Core i7 965!
