First up are the system specific benchmarks that will test overall scientific performance. All scientific tests were run using the ASUS 8800 GT.
To get things started, I've chosen to run Apophysis. This program is used primarily to render and generate fractal flame images. We will run this benchmark with the following settings:
- Resolution: 2750 x 2048
- Quality: 500
- Limit Memory use: 512MB
The measurement will determine how long - in minutes - each system takes to completely render the image.
WinRAR is an application used to archive and compress large files to a more manageable size. We will use 10MB, 100MB, and 500MB files, and will record the time needed to compress these files. Time will be measured in seconds.
The Sapphire 780G placed in the middle of the pack in the WinRAR tests, and finished dead last in the Apophysis test.
