Bench is a simple multiplatform benchmark suite focusing on generic CPU, cache and memory performances, giving a detailed system's performance profile or sintetic performance indexes.
Written to wide portability it can be compiled and used on many hardware and software platform but for the same reason doesn't using ASM code nor calling platform specific features like Altivec, MMX and SSE the results may be more significant as a very generic performance index but may not be significant for specific platform optimized software, like most of more power domanding applications.
Really, the best benchmark would be running exactly what the user need!
Bench doesn't need installation, simply run the executable; 150 MB of free physical RAM, 300 on 64 bit systems, are recommended to run all the tests at best or disk caching will be involved.
Like most benchmarks and power demanding software you are warned that it would stress and possibly overheat t...
