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 , 500MB files and 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.

Apophysis is core clock speed sensitive so results pretty much follow raw clock speeds. The WinRar testing shows that the Intel CPU's with Hyper threading perform decidedly better in the file compression tests. The i5 750 delivers results on par with the higher clocked quad core AMD processors. When overclocked to 4+GHz the socket 1156 processors lead the way.
