Benchtype:
CPU (ALU)
 
Memory footprint:
Very low
 
Description:
The Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) is essentially the heart of a CPU, MaxxPI² will meansure this part of the CPU, via Mips bench.
Mips bench supports in the current version, CPU's with 1,2,3,4 and 8 Core's (HT core's counts as *real* core).
 
For further scaleability informations on different CPU types, see here: here.
 
Mipsbench is also used by MaxxMIPS-Preview.
 
It is split into two (main) subcategories, Strings/Integer to spread CPU load in wide and different ranges:
  • Integer based, doing the following benchmarks:
    • Complex arithmetic bench -is a mixed up complex calculation
    • Sive bench -is a calculation that generates a list of prime numbers
    • Queen bench -computes the number of solutions for the n-queen problem on an n x n board
    • Fibonacci bench -generates the fibonacci sequence
  • Strings/Integer based, doing the following benchmarks:
    • Dhrystone bench -consists of standard code and concentrates on strings/integer handling
  • Strings based, doing the following benchmarks:
    • Ansistring -assignment, pos, concat, compare bench
    • Shortstring -assignment bench
    • Widestring -assignment bench
    • String -assignment bench
Reached results (score):
Is given in MIPS (Mil. instructions per second) and shows the arithmetic average between:
"Average (Avg.) Integer Mips" and "Average (Avg.) String Mips".
 
Further given informations:
Benchtime (Benched in) shows the time needed to run Mipsbench.
Displaytime (Displayed in), shows the time needed to show the current resultset.
