non-game benchmarking software

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

Just wondering what your recommendations are on (free) non-game benchmarking software. Ideally something that does:

1) pure CPU power
2) pure memory
3) some kind of CPU + memory synthetic test
4) CPU + memory productivity/real-world scenario test

Thanks a lot.

There isn't really anything completely cpu or memory intensive, they are linked together & pretty much impossible to separate completely, one needs the other to work.

Wprime is probably the best for straight cpu power, memory doesn't have a big impact.

I know of nothing that tests memory that isn't affected by cpu speed, aida 64, maxxmem & sisoft sandra are about as good as it gets for memory testing, aida64 memory benchmark is pretty common in reviews with a stock cpu clock so easy to compare.

Cpu + memory benchmark is probably superpi 32m. Cpu speed has a big impact, at the same cpu speed changing memory settings can reflect the performance changes memory makes. Cinebench also relies on both cpu & memory for multithread testing, superpi is single thread.

I'm not sure about real world tests, something that shows a time or score at the end makes it easier to see the differences when changing settings. If something that takes 10 minutes finishes 5 seconds faster after changes, it isn't easy to see any difference.
