    Measure your Dual/Multi Core Notebook CPU Speed - Bye Bye to SuperPI
    Last Updated: 2008-01-05

    This is a thread that is a long time coming.

    Note: It will be complimentary to the thread on:
    - Measure your Notebook CPU Speed (mainly SuperPI related)
    & Windows XP Multi Core config - Does your OEM do it for you?

    The Past CPU Benchmark(s):
    Super PI

    - is single threaded, so its relevance as a measure of performance in the current era of multi-core processors is diminishing quickly. As the calculation times become faster and faster, Super PI is also becoming a rather poor stability test due to the need for a stability test to run long enough to stress the hardware. This program does not utilize all of the multi-cores/processors when running the test... strange that most people still use this as a benchmark... especially since the scores are geared towards high clock speed single-core CPUs.
    _________________________________________

    The New CPU Benchmark(s):
    wPrime - (Download Site)
    Compatibility:
    - Virtually all CPUs (single-core, multi-core, multi-processors, multi-logical processors)
    - Windows XP w/ SP2 and Vista (32-bit and 64-bit)
    - All older Windows as well
    Note 1: (for all Windows versions w/ multiple user accounts) you need to have an account with Admin privileges to run this benchmark.
    Note 2-a: (for Vista) you need to manually set 2 threads under the advanced settings. Otherwise the times will be doubled.
    Note 2-b: (for Vista) you might need to disable the User Account Control & any user passwords if you get an "Unexpected Error..."
    Note 3: (for XP w/ SP2 32-bit) if you have a dual-core [or multi-core] CPU, your scores can vary [be lower than expected] if you did not do the XP Multi-Core Hotfix

    - is multi-threaded, which means that it will utilize the entire multi-core CPU within its test. It is very similar to SuperPI, but has a bit more features that is thanks to CPU-Z (install this missing library within wPrime) to retrieve most of the hardware information (CPU, Motherboard, etc..). Their site has many submissions on scores from a lot of CPUs (both in single and multi-core/processors).

    Technicalities
    wPrime uses a recursive call of Newton's method for estimating functions, with f(x)=x2-k, where k is the number we're sqrting, until Sgn(f(x)/f'(x)) does not equal that of the previous iteration, starting with an estimation of k/2. It then uses an iterative calling of the estimation method a set amount of times to increase the accuracy of the results. It then confirms that n(k)2=k to ensure the calculation was correct. It repeats this for all numbers from 1 to the requested maximum.


    Threading
    The aim was to make a perfectly threaded benchmark, such that it would consistantly use 100% of the CPU while in use. This is achieved by using the WMI to detect the CPU count and use exactly that many processing threads to avoid any performance losses due to multiple threads running on any single physical thread. Each thread is designed to do 1/n of the work, where n is the number of threads. For example, if you're calculating 16 roots on 4 CPU's, each CPU will calculate 4 roots. Some might argue that this style of threading is unrealistic in real-time performance, but in fact is quite indicative of performance in several real world tasks such as F@H which allows you to run several instances of the work at any one time.

    Multi-PI (still in beta testing)

    - is a promising new CPU benchmarking program [Java-based] that is in beta testing. The most promising aspect of this benchmark is that it can also be used within Mac OS & Linux environments as well. When it gets a final release, this thread will be updated.

    Lets show them what a notebook community has to offer.

    You can post any or all of the following benchmarks for your system(s):
    - 3DMark 2001
    - 3DMark 2003
    - 3DMark 2005
    - 3DMark 2006

    Rules for getting on Hall of Fame:
    - must have picture (attached or uploaded to image site)... if it looks fake then I will ask to submit it to hwbot

    - must only Set Threads to the number of cores you have (example: Core 2 Duo > 2 threads)

    Conclusion for score differences:
    I have been looking into the results and tests.

    Seems that the bests scores using the similar/same CPUs are gained from users with:
    (in this order)
    - Vista (all versions) x64
    - Vista (all versions) 32-bit
    - XP Pro x64
    - XP SP2 (all versions) 32-bit with Multi-Core hotfix
    - XP SP2 (all versions) 32-bit not configured for multi-core utilization

    To optimize your score:
    - disable resource hogs (System Restore, Antivirus, etc..)
    - switch Appearance/Theme to Classic Mode

    Thanks! Maybe we should use this in the feature for reviews. But I think that SuperPi is more common among people.

    I just want people to be aware that SuperPI is not a benchmark that [the results] can be counted upon for new systems with dual-cores [and up].

    It would be nice if we just transition out of the old SuperPI mode, and into a new multi-threaded [as well and fully compatible single-threaded] CPU benchmark program to reflect performance scores more accurately.

    SuperPi is still valid. Just because dual cores exist doesn't mean that every program supports it. I'm not opposed to adding this as a valid benchmark, but single-core performance is still quite relevant. Even newer games like Quake4 that have multi-core support only barely stress a second core, and still depend primarily on how fast a single thread runs.

    I think the least that can be done is include it in the bunch of tests that are run in the reviews, won't hurt and those results tell it won't take long either. I suppose it tests the true speeds of using both cores at max eh

    Well, I ran it on my single-core Sempron 3300+ cpu and got a 32M score of 86.046 seconds.

    Well, I ran it on my single-core Sempron 3300+ cpu and got a 32M score of 86.046 seconds.
    That score seems right. Here is the score of:

    AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3400+ @ 2299.7MHz
    Score: 1m 18.812s

    hmmm must be a simpler calculation algorithim thingy than superpi then?
    the algorithm is different than SuperPI, in that its not calculating the digits of PI, rather one of Newton's functions.

    The most intense test [in wPrime] is the 1024M... this is definitely for stability and stress tests.

    Okay, I did the 1024M Stress Test and got 45.60155 minutes.

    I'm guessing this is where the single core gets completely obliterated.

    Sempron 3300+
    2GB Ram
    120GB HDD
    Win XP
