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.

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 second generation Core processors finished near the top of the comparison chart based on CPU speed. The WinRar testing backs up these results with the two new processors consistently near the top in compression time. Bibble 5 shows that processor speed and multi-threading deliver excellent results.
