Benchmark Tests Overview
RealBench features several open source softwares with the latest CPU extensions, where each would test a different part of the system:
GIMP image editing
This focuses on single-threaded CPU performance and memory performance, therefore CPU clock speed and memory efficiency (timings + frequency) are the key to a good score. It uses up to SSE4.2 CPU extensions.
HandBrake video compression.
This focuses on multi-threaded CPU and cache performance, therefore the more CPU threads, cache and clock speed you have the better the score. It uses up to AVX CPU extensions.
This focuses entirely on OpenCL performance. It will check for GPU accelerated OpenCL first, before defaulting to CPU if it isn’t present. It is also compatible with AMD’s upcoming hUMA between APU and GPU. It scales perfectly across all available resources, so the more OpenCL capable GPUs installed the better the score. OpenCL driver efficiency is also key to this test, with some components performing better than others. The test runs for a fixed period and is calculated on the sustained KSample/sec the system can generate.
This test uses a combination of the above tests to simulate a heavy multitasking scenario that loads the entire system.
The RealBench heavy multitasking benchmark is more CPU dependent, but it’s the RAM that is feeding the info to the CPU and the Crucial kit sits on top the chart in this one.
RealBench is made up of real programs testing RAM not synthetic benchmarks and the Crucial kit is kicking some butt in RB and scores a 68.381 topping the chart.
Image Encoding shows the Crucial Kit on top the chart again and it’s lower Latency and tighter timings than the other kits are performing above expectations.
