Developed by some folks from the University of Tokyo, Super PI is a small utility that does just as the name implies. It figures PI to a set number of decimal places. Since PI is an infinite number to the right of the decimal point, the utility measures the time it takes to figure a set number of places. It runs the calculations a set number of times and gives a time for the completion of the task. This is a simple and effective way to measure the raw number crunching power of the processor being used to compile the results.

The box calculated pi out to the 1 millionth digit in 9.1 seconds, which just edges out the Maingear F131 for another record. The oc'd Intel processor really shines in this particular test.
