UnixBench 5.1.3

 

UnixBench has been around for a long time now, and is a good general-purpose bench to test on Linux based systems.

 

This is a system benchmark, and it shows the performance of single threaded and multi-threaded tasks.

This shows the system indexes after a complete UnixBench run. Here, we get an idea of how much performance gains we get using multi-threaded applications. However, many applications use single threaded, so this number is really the base, and a higher clock speed will increase both indexes.

The single threaded test shows the performance of a single core. With these types of tests, CPU architecture and speed are the basis of the score. A higher clock speed will increase these scores, and have a greater impact on the results.

The multi-threaded test uses all eight threads of the Intel 4771. In this test, more cores/threads will have a greater impact on the results.
