32-Bit CPU Calculation Benchmarks: Super Pi

Super Pi Mod 1.5 Source: SuperPI

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 calculation times are better. SuperPi is not multi-threaded.

Any advantages the 2.6GHz Athlon II X4 620 processor may possess from its native quad-parallelism evaporate in this single-threaded test, since it's positioned against processors with faster clock speeds, more L2 and L3 cache, or better instruction sets. If you're running applications that are primarily single-threaded, the Athlon II X2 250 is not going to be as fast as AMD's Phenom II X4 series or even Intel's Core 2 Duo/Core i7 processors.

Interestingly, while the AMD Athlon II X4 620 shows next to no change in Super Pi (and remains the slowest processor here due to its low clock speeds), the Core i7 920 test system sees a slight improvement in calculation time when SuperPi is run under Windows 7 as opposed to Windows Vista (for 16M test specifically).
