New benchmark chart on RF homepage

Postby tsn » Thu Oct 25, 2007 6:15 pm

Before I try to start explaining it with my own words, here´s the original text:

"Benchmarking

RF4 performance chart.

This benchmarking chart gives some comparative simulation times on different machines, using a standard scene especially set-up to make maximum use of multi-threading. Please note that this is chart is not designed to compare hardware brands or be used for product comparison. If you would like to participate in the benchmarking then please fell free to download the scene."

this is awesome, but I would really like to see this expanded to included 8 and 16 processor boxes. I did some rough benchmarks comparing 4 proc to 8 proc boxes and got about a 60 percent speed increase with the 8 cores. Originally I was going to get a 16 proc box, but decided the money was better spent going into 5 8 core boxes (looking at the performance dropoff after a certain number of cores).

Thanks Tsn for telling us about this. It is an interesting chart, not only for the different hardware, but also for the question how RF performs on different OS.

Why not add the results of 4-and more core systems (with core-increased license of course) ? I shall test the benchmark-scene on my strongest MacPro. However, this benchmark scene has only one huge block of fluid (5Mio particles) and is not challenging dynamics or complex daemons.

1h diffrent between rf32 and rf 64 bit - wow
Never thought that this would make such big diffrent

oh definitely. The REALLY big difference comes when you can't fit the process in memory on a 32bit box. :)

Ok, just finished the benchmark sim of 300 frames: 3h56m58s :first:

That is a dual quad-core Xeon "Clovertown" at 3GHz with 8G RAM and 32-bit OSX10.4.10.

BTW: This benchmark scene does not write particles or meshes, therefore it is not influenced by hardisk speed.

How many threads did you run on it Christian?

Hi Shaun, has your new comp arrived ?

I used 8 threads = number of cores

No, new PC is slightly delayed to ensure a 1.6GHz FSB motherboard, although my procs will be running 1.33GHz FSB, but aparently this is intel's latest MoBo so I decided to just future-proof a little more.

8 threads, so full horsepower then. I've not looked at the benchmark scene yet but I'd be very interested to see how 8 procs on 64 bit RF goes to see if any more efficiency can be squeezed out of it.
