SPECviewperf™ is a portable OpenGL performance
benchmark program written in C. It was developed by IBM. Later updates and
significant contributions were made by SGI, Digital and other
SPECopcSM project group members. SPECviewperf provides a vast amount
of flexibility in benchmarking OpenGL performance. Currently, the program runs
on most implementations of UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 95/98 and Linux. Higher
numbers equate to better performance.
Here we see
that CPU speed does have an affect on professional 3D benchmarks. Please keep in
mind that the 1.9 GHz processor has a higher FSB.
SuperPI calculates the
number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The
benchmark is fairly diverse and allows the user to change the number of digits
of PI that can be calculated from 16 Thousand to 32 Million. The benchmark,
which uses 19 iterations in the test, is set 1 Million digits.
Lower numbers denote faster calculation times
(seconds), and hence, better performance.
