Apophysis 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 10MB, 100MB and 500MB files and test the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds.
Here you can see in the Apophysis benchmark that the E8500 destroyed the other processors in the amount of time it took to render the image. In the WinRAR tests the E8500 held on almost on par with the competition.
