Default X1000 benchmarks

Hi all

Since we appear to be going benchmark crazy, even though I think that real world usage is more appropriate, for the sake of completeness, here are the Disk I/O benchmark conducted by Mufa at http://forum.amigaone.pl/topic65.html#p503 and the RageMem http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/...order=0#650254 benchmark conducted by Sam.

I don't (yet!) own either of the machines involved but I think we should show them all regardless of which systems we favour.

Also, big congrats to Trevor Dickinson and all that have made the X1000 a reality, I really can't wait to get one!

Considering how skewed the initial Mufa lame bench was I would take any results from him with a grain of salt. The least there should be a clear specification how the test was performed in order to be able to repeat it.

In memory bandwidth X1000 clearly is superior though.

Here's a MPlayer decoding benchmark where X1000 could really show its power:

I don't see why we are revisiting the lame benchmarks as they are lame in every sense of the word. Surely we can get real world tests now that it's a product not a prototype with NDAs.

I'm waiting for Linux benchmarks coming from the A1X1K. Say running BF2 via WINE should do a nice stress test. Or would that be too much for the PA6T to even attempt?

I'd like to see some stop-watch tests for normal tasks. Also for any benchmark it should be noted whether or not HIGHER is better or LOWER is better, otherwise they are useless.

best case they get head in head.

up till now, real life benchs show x1k=mac g4 on slightly lower clock.

Even though I started this thread, I agree 100%.

Sigh, not according to those my first email in this very thread.

Anyhooo, given that Hyperion have stated that the OS for the X1000 is currently unoptimised, all of these benchmarks are not really worth the virtual paper that they're written on. I'm much more interested in how people are finding them in every day use.

@billyfish:
but these are calculation benchmarks im talking about, what can be done about the os to make them run faster on a given hardware?? i mean except it is seriously busy-looping in the background at all times.

and then you post a highly artificial benchmark result to start the thread? learn to live with objective results you get. i hope you will find real life benchmarks to your liking even if it might be difficult considering the current performance to the gfx card and lack of 3d support?

I've always found those old results weird. I don't know what is wrong with the said system (maybe highly fragmented SFS partition?), but these are the results I get:


X1000 is of course still faster (as would likely be Sam 440/460 as well).

It should be noted that many things can affect such benchmark, such as the filesystem being used (copy may return immediately if delayed writing is applied by the filesystem). Another significant factor is the physical location of the partitions, are they located on the same or different HDDs? And finally, rotating HDDs are clearly slower than SSD.

Notes: The PowerBook has a newer Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVE 250GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache 2.5" HDD, while the Mac mini has the original Apple branded Seagate Momentus 5400.2 ST9808211A 80GB HDD).

Wine? On linux PPC? QEmu, perhaps. Wine Is Not an Emulator.

I knew it was only a matter of time before someone mentioned DosBox or "virtualisation". You people make me sick!

In all seriousness you don't really think people would spend all that money just to emulate Windoes do you? What a waste. Please, get that Windoes **** off here

I can't decide...

Should I buy 10 mac mini G4 computers with MorphOS licences (assuming I can get a mini with 512K and Morphos license for $300) or should I purchase one X1000?

What would be faster?
