  1. Hi,
    I want to show you a benchmark I wrote. It's a single-threaded benchmark that runs on the CPU. The CPU has to calculate the orbital trajectory of one million rocks rotating around a sphere in space. These rocks travel at random speeds and at random altitudes, that is why the time varies the benchmark takes to complete.

    I intend to create a highscore list for your results in this thread and on my blog. You can download the benchmark here:

    Please post your results like this:


    Highscore list:


    CPU Benchmark (single-threaded) v1.1

    This updated benchmark takes longer to complete which increases accuracy. The accuracy went up by a huge margin because I also tweaked the code.

    Again please post in this format:


    Highscore list:


    CPU Benchmark (multi-threaded)

    Here is my new CPU benchmark. It is multi-threaded. This time the CPU has to calculate the orbital trajectory for 100000000 rocks. That is 100 times more than before so don't be surprised that this new benchmark takes considerably longer to complete.

    Again, please post in this Format:


    Highscore list:

    Yes, that's correct.

    I will update the highscore list every Monday from now on. I also added some new benchmarks to the first post.
