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 MSI board was dead even with the other AMD offerings, with each taking 30 minutes to complete the render. WinRAR was a different story though, and the MSI 890GXM-G65 was the fastest of all the tested motherboards regardless of the file size or type of compression.
