turion benchmark results
I would like to thank everyone who sent me a benchmark. The results
are attached as a csv file.
For those who don't remember: I asked people to please run
/usr/lib/atlas3-test/xzinvtst for me from the atlas3-test package and
report the results. The purpose of this was to aid a buying decision
-- I currently own a G4 powerbook (the last line in the benchmarks)
and the results helped me decide to buy a turion (note: I expected the
turion to be faster, but I didn't know how much, and whether that was
worth the price of a new laptop).
Some of remarks:
1. These benchmarks are completely unscientific, and they reflect my
specialized needs for fast number-crunching. However, I think that
most "general" benchmarks are pretty meaningless, and this one seems
to serve my purposes well.
2. Please ignore the first couple of results for each processor,
because it takes a while for cpu frequency governors to kick in. Yes,
I know I should have thought about that, sorry.
3. I assumed that everybody who sent in a single result runs a 64-bit
kernel, in retrospect, I should have asked them about this. From
people who sent in both 32-bit and 64-bit results, I know that the
difference is sometimes very significant. The benchmarks only have
the 64-bit versions.
Thanks you all for helping me with this,
