JRMark -- JRiver's Benchmark Tool
« on: October 14, 2009, 05:13:40 pm »

Matt added a Benchmark program in build 83 that measures overall system performance.  It gives you a way to compare machines.  It also gives us a way to measure changes in the code and look for new ways to enhance performance.

It's under MC's Help menu.

Your results will change over time for several reasons:

1.  A faster machine -- overclocking, for example
2.  A newer version of MC with performance improvements
3.  Power settings of the machine
4.  Other programs running

STANDINGS:
Best:  glynor   JRMark (version 14.0.83): 2867
Best: Matt on MC16:  4376

Worst:  rick.ca   JRMark (version 14.0.83): 264

10. NEW: Added 'Benchmark' tool to measure system performance and help diagnose performance problems. (Help > Benchmark...)

Hmmm?

Twain means two.  I think "Mark Twain" meant two fathoms when the steamboat was sounding the depth as they crossed shallow places.

There's some interesting stuff comparing a Core Duo and i5 / i7.

For example, single-threaded integer math runs about the same speed, but the i7 walks away in the multi-threaded math tests.  This isn't too surprising since it has twice the cores.

Single-threaded large scale memory manipulation is about 4x faster on the i7 (for example, Image > Flood filling).  I didn't expect that, as I'd always read the jump to DDR3 wasn't exciting.

This also shows that some core database routines still have room to grow to better utilize 4+ CPU cores.

This also shows that some core database routines still have room to grow to better utilize 4+ CPU cores.

If you look at my two scores, it is even more interesting to compare the two, since my Core 2 is a quad core that isn't cache-crippled (it has the full 12MB), and it is compared to the Core i5 (which is quad core with NO hyperthreading).

Even still, the Nehalem absolutely dominates the entire Image processing test.  Granted, my Core i5 has a 14% clock speed advantage, but look at those Flood Filling numbers.  That's far more than the 33% or so IPC advantage the Nehalem core has over the Core 2 derivatives.

The margins on hardware are RAZOR THIN.  Just have a direct clickthrough to the Newegg ad on Interact instead.   ;)

:) guess so.. the question is what those twainmarks mean. the first machine i posted here can record 24 tracks at 24 bits easely. and has no problem with my 'modest' media database. does it also have influence when its done on a 64 bit system? xp vs w7 etc...

nice and intriguing new little tool..

The margins on hardware are RAZOR THIN.  Just have a direct clickthrough to the Newegg ad on Interact instead.   ;)
That's a better idea.

For me it seems Windows 7 is a litle bit faster than Windows Vista SP2 on the same Hardware.

:) guess so.. the question is what those twainmarks mean. the first machine i posted here can record 24 tracks at 24 bits easely. and has no problem with my 'modest' media database. does it also have influence when its done on a 64 bit system? xp vs w7 etc...

nice and intriguing new little tool..

Ha ha!!  That too, of course.

Maybe you guys should do a contest where the person with the highest submitted score gets a set of virtual "truck nuts" that hangs off the bottom of their avatar picture on Interact.  That'd be sweet.

I think a prize for the best, maybe a pair of furry dice for the car.  And another for the worst, maybe a new motherboard.

This is interesting...

Here's an i7 @ 3.2

Running 'Math' benchmark...
    Multi-threaded integer math..1.210 seconds
    Multi-threaded mixed math... 0.825 seconds
Score: 2225

Running 'Image' benchmark...
    Flood filling... 0.450 seconds
    Direct copying... 0.543 seconds

And here's my server machine in the basement (Core i5 750 @ 4.0GHz, 4GB RAM, AMD HD 3850):

Running 'Math' benchmark...
    Multi-threaded integer math... 1.723 seconds
    Multi-threaded mixed math... 1.008 seconds

Running 'Image' benchmark...
    Flood filling... 0.470 seconds
    Direct copying... 0.676 seconds

I've got you beat substantially on a clockspeed basis, with the same exact CPU architecture, but in these four metrics your i7 still beat my system.  I wonder if this is the impact of Hyperthreading or the triple-channel memory (or both)?  (I'm assuming that you have a Core i7 9-series CPU, and not one of the newer Lynnfield parts, of course).  I'd guess hyperthreading mostly, but the triple-channel memory could be having a tiny bit of an impact here, even though my dual-channel RAM is almost certainly running at a much higher clockspeed than yours is on that i7.  The extra memory channel could especially help on those fill-rate limited tests.

Still fascinating...

My i5 blew yours away on the Database tests though.  Of course, you could easily overclock that thing (assuming you have a decent heatsink) and beat mine, so it is a bit of a pyrrhic victory.

I can't believe you don't know what they are, living in Minnesota!  I probably can't go a week commuting to work without seeing someone with them here.

It always seems so self-deprecating to me...

Ha ha!  You'll love it.  You can OC them to the moon.

What was that score from?

No point keeping it a secret now... it's from a P4 1.8 MHz with 512 Mb RAM. Needless to say, I'll love the new one without OC'ing. At least I hope so. Not being the truck nuts sort, I decided to go with the lower power supply and smaller case the lower power requirement of the Lynnfield processor seems to allow. I know next to nothing about OC'ing, but I assume that decision might put some constraints on what I can do. I read a comforting opinion that the Turbo Boost feature lessens the need for/benefit from OC'ing.

It's doing twice as much work in the multi-threaded math loops, so a dual-core CPU will have about the same times for all the math stages.

If you look at a single-core CPU, it takes about twice as long for it to do the multi-threaded tests:

That's very true.  The dynamic core clocking feature is fantastic, and you probably really won't see the need.  I run video transcoding for my TV recordings on that machine all the time (automated), so having the higher clockspeed really helps there.

not too shabby but glynor still has us all beat by quite a bit.

I'm wondering what would help these scores besides a better cu?  Solid state drive?  Faster Ram?

How much of a perceptual difference in MC would that make?

Nice marks, rick.ca.  Let's see if anyone can beat it.  I have some PC's around here somewhere....

Definitely not beating rick.ca's, but this qualifies for second place.  I have not tried my old laptops though, one of which probably would not even run MC14 as it has Windows 98SE on it (I am using it as a printer server, and it works horribly at that too).

If this is going to be a serious competition for the "floormark," I must insist on some rules. Like the subject machine must be the used to run MC on a daily basis. Compared to some other software, MC actually runs reasonably well on this thing—something you guys should be proud of. Maybe I should send it to you so you can have it bronzed. ;)

There may be a use for a PC even slower than rick's P4 running MC.

I have considered using a netbook or a ULV laptop to run MC and play music in one of my rooms.  It would be of interest to see how MC works on such a PC retrieving files across a LAN or using a connection to a library server.

If you are using MC on an Atom based PC, post your benchmark results and comment on how MC works on that PC.

I referenced it in my original post, but since you asked... The machine that scored the JRMark 2867 score was:

CPU: Intel Core i5 750 overclocked to 4.0GHz (Base Clock 200 MHz x 20 Multiplier with Turbo disabled)
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 @ 1600MHz (7-8-7-24 timings)
GPU: AMD HD 3850 @ stock (512MB)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P55-UD4P
(And a whole BUNCH of hard drives, though I don't think this benchmark stresses the storage subsystem too much.)

It probably would have been even higher had I shut down all my background tasks, but I didn't.  I couldn't actually, since the system was actually even BUSY at the time recording a TV show via BTV.
