SUPER PI Benchmark...
This is weird, but anyone tried this benchmark?...
Here's the readme.txt:
"Super PI Ver1.1e (calculation of pi up to 33.55 million digits)
In August 1995, the calculation of pi up to 4,294,960,000 decimal digits was succeeded by using a supercomputer at the University of Tokyo. The program was written by D.Takahashi and he collaborated with Dr. Y.Kanada at the computer center, the University of Tokyo. This record should be the current world record. ( Details is shown in the windows help. )
This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environment such as Windows NT and Windows 95. In order to calculate 33.55 million digits, it takes within 3 days with Pentium 90MHz, 40MB main memory and 340MB available storage.
The software is free and the circulation of program is also free!"
...so I tried it in my machine....here's the result (post yours!):
+ 000h 00m 01s [ 16K] (16384 digits)
+ 000h 00m 02s [ 32K] (32768 digits)
+ 000h 00m 04s [ 64K] ....etc
+ 000h 00m 12s [ 128K]
+ 000h 00m 31s [ 256K]
+ 000h 01m 12s [ 512K]
+ 000h 02m 40s [ 1M]
+ 000h 06m 21s [ 2M]
+ 000h 12m 48s [ 4M]
+ 000h 28m 42s [ 8M]
+ 001h 01m 05s [ 16M]
+ 002h 20m 11s [ 32M] (33,554,432 digits)
My machine's specs:
Intel Desktop Board D815EPEA2
Pentium III 800EB
384MB PC133 (CAS3)
you can download this program from here:
I'm testing 512,000 right now. I'll do it again once my PC is off line (I think all the programs I'm running right now might interfere with it's preformance ).
