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.

The Apophysis and WinRar numbers are pretty even across the board showing that similar component selection delivers similar results. The Geekbench scoring had the Xpower clearly ahead of the comparison boards both at baseline and overclocked scores.
