Script Benchmark: Write a Million Numbers

Posted:
in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Here's a fairly recent (orig Nov 2002) browser speed test. (Since it is an optimized test, it is not necessarily a pure benchmark of JavaScript speed.)



In the classical fashion of a JavaScript test, it writes one million numbers, which actually helps test not only the script execution speed (which is a value displayed in milliseconds), but also the browser display speed and computer rendering time (the difference between the displayed value and the actual physical time before the entire list of one million numbers is visible).



For comparison, a current Windows computer (2.4 GHz) can finish the test in 5.032 seconds (IE 6.0).

As this test may consume one minute of time on some computers, caution is advised before clicking on the link.

    13464 for the latest nightly build of Camino. Hmmmmm.



    Does this test the browser, or Javascript?

    Seems kinda fast compared to the other findings.

    21975 in OW4.5 on a 450MHz G4 with 1.5GB RAM, with Finder, Mail, OW, Safari (which is just a hair slower at this) and iTunes running. I didn't restart, either.

    Dual 800, 768MB RAM, 10.2.6:



    Camino: 9820

    Safari: 12711

    OW4.5: 12759

    IE: 63344



    Just what I expected. I would expect a dual 1.25 or 1.42 to post ~5000 in Camino. Verification?

    Using a 800MHz iMac w/ 512MB RAM & OSX 10.2.6...



    Netscape 7.0 - 29,774

    I.E. 5.2 83,000+

    Safari - 14,237

    FWIW: Dual 1.25 G4 --> Safari 8219 (8353 with CPU monitor running)

    --> Netscape 7.1 8551 (with CPU monitor running)



    Looking at the CPU monitor while running this test seemed like there wasn't much threading of the task as only one CPU was dominant at anyone time during the run with Netscape 7.1. The situation was different with Safari as both CPU's were sharing the load thereby explaining the lower times.

    DVD_Junkie, what do you get under Camino, if you don't mind my asking? It was at least 25% faster on my machine than Safari.

    Interesting question.



    with IE 5.2 I get 43565

    with Camino 0.7 : 6827 hmmmm

    On a 266MHz G3 Beige box running iCab 2.9.5 on OS9.2.1 I ran out of patience after several minutes of being warned of an infinite loop running, so I stopped the test and iCab crashed. So, top that you speed demons!

    Well... We can see that javascript still needs some optimizations in Safari...

    Interesting that this is faster than the DP 1.25GHz with Safari 1.0- it scored 7950.

    Why? Safari uses only one processor, the G5 has better FPU (actually, double FPU), and the results seem to scale almost linearly with the processor frequency.
