    My powerbook 800Mhz got 1507.5 Megaflops..

    Any good???

    Hey what are megaflops :confused: <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    I tested various CPU modules in a B&W G3 and my Beige G3 quite a while ago and also tested in Altivec Fractal Demo.

    Here's the pict:

    I'm still Altivec challenged, but...

    B&W G3/350: 215.4 MegaFlops

    iBook 700: 483.5 MegaFlops

    System: DP800 (512RAM - not DDR)

    6 GigaFlops with Fractal.

    I bet the top of the line DP1.2 w/DDR

    will get 10 GigaFlops.

    Wait until 64bit G5 at MWSF in Jan 2003.

    That will probably do 20 Gigiflops +.

    7.0 GFLOPS, but I was using the machine as a file server at the time. I'd have to go and shut a few things down to get a "pure" test... but the guy above probably did that already so I won't bother.

    My first Mac could do about 100,000 FLOPS, so this is a bit of a step up (70,000 times faster :eek: ).

    Tested my DP800 at work and got 5534.1 Megaflops. Tested my new DP867 at home and got 6127.3 Megaflops. My old G4/450 got 1341.5 Megaflops

    2852 Mflops on my G4/733 quick(slow)silver running 10.2 with 512 ram

    These 733 quicksilvers are cr@p!! Not even close to half of a DP800!!

    Indigo iBook 366 running 10.2 = 266 MegaFLOPS

    damn now I want a new ddr tower.

    iMac 233 (Rev B, more graphics ram/diff card, shouldnt matter), 384MB RAM (gave the app 100), going with norm setttings about 135 megaflops.

    Tweaking the damn thing to all hell I was able to achieve 171.4 megaflops in OS 9 at 640x480, 256 greys, optimized extension set. Took exactly half an hour to render, or 1804 seconds.

    I will try Mac OS X shortly, though it doesn't react well to having 256 colors... . Ah well.

    And no, I don't normally use OS 9. Just booted here to play a little Driver and do the benchmark.

    on my tibook 500mhz with 384mb i get 1901.6 Megaflops with default settings

    when i turn off altivec i get 243.5 Megaflops

    god bless altivec

    PowerBook G3, 233 MHz, 160MB RAM, 512k L2 cache, OS 10.1.5: 136.2 megaflops

    iMac G3, 233 MHz, 256MB RAM, rev. B: 138.2 megaflops

    Same iMac under 9.2.2: 145.5 megaflops

    Blue and White G3 upgraded to Newertech G4, 400MHz, 224MB RAM, OS 9.2.2: 1196.2 megaflops

    Same computer, second trial: 1275.2 megaflops

    Third trial: 1277.2 megaflops

    w/o Altivec code: 264.4 megaflops

    The second trial for the G4 was actually without multiprocessor code, while all the others were. I thought removing MP code really sped it up, but then I turned it back on and it got the same performance. I didn't write it down, but I closed and opened the program and the first time it got under 1.2 GFlops, and the second run got over 1.2 GFlops. Must be something with the cache (I think the G4 has a 1MB L2 cache).

    Also, when I zoomed in, it first got 960 megaflops, then it got 1389. When I zoomed in on a black area, it went as high as 1452 megaflops.

    My dad has a PowerBook G4/550, but he took it to work today so I couldn't test it.

    I'll have to test it out on my DP G4/500 once I get it

    Powerbook 3400c 180mhz---59.0 Megaflops.

    Pity there's no 68k version of this app....

    UPDATE: 58.0 Megaflops with multiprocessor and altivec off...hmm....

    Hmm...I'm going to go zoom in on blank space and do my little half hour render AND force quit the finder and see what happens...

    Maybe I can get 180 megaflops on the slowest G3 ever, ever made.

    <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

    How sad that sounds when you guys are throwing around numbers nearly 50 times bigger...

    Oh well. My iMac is four years old, damnit! :: grins evilly at the high-end PC's from that era ::

    Oh, and I might add, I was able to get this thing down to as little as 13.9 megaflops with really really fast settings (~3 secs to complete). So don't feel bad

    Muahaha...did the same test while doing a 100% radial zoom in Photoshop. 0.0 megaflops.

    I am the slowest. <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />
