benchmarks in graphical form
Having played around with Excel (because I don't have Origin), I now have some graphs to show you the results of my various benchmarking.
First of all, the 2D Benchmarks:
The graph for this can be found over at http://borandi.googlepages.com/benchmarking:
BLUE = Singlethreaded Apps: PiFast, 1m SuperPi, 32m SuperPi
RED = Multithreaded Apps: wPrime 32m, wPrime 1024m
* = Not all benchmarks complete
I've decided to leave PCMark05 out of this, as it depends too much on the processor and hard drive used.
The slowest time is set as the max time, and all the scores are scaled to it. So if chip A takes 120 seconds, and chip B takes 30 seconds, chip B is rated 30/120 = 0.25
So for these benchmarks, LOWER IS BETTER.
The 3D Benchmarks:
The graph for this can be found over at http://borandi.googlepages.com/benchmarking2:
* = not all benchmarks completed yet
In these benchmarks, every score is normalised to the best score. So if GPU A gets 12000 points on a benchmark, and GPU B gets 6000 points, GPU B gets 12000/6000 = 0.5 points.
In these benchmarks, HIGHER IS BETTER.
