Happy Pi day friends!!!
New download link with id=666 xD Evil benchmark!
Going to check it out.
Ok, program tested. All 4 cores in 100% usage during the test so it is really good job done And i hope you will revert slider. Here is my score:
And for incorrect cpu speed detection i would suggest you to perform little bench while detecting speed to make readings proper.
why no decimal sliderrr?????
Ultimate Multi Core PI
The graphical user interface has been rewritten in C# and WPF 4.0 [the application needs Net Framework 4.0].
The core of the benchmark was moved to a DLL written in Visual C + + [calculation algorithm and parallelization] so that benchmarks results are not altered at all.
Because we want to be sure that all users are benching with the same settings... Any requests beside decimal slider?
Having just a handful of presets might be preferable if people want some other options.
The latest version crashes when i try to run it!
I uploaded a newer version of the application, that will display the error message. Please try now.
HERE YOU GO SIRE
You have a slider now, so you can chose the number of decimals for PI. Up to 360.000! For HWBOT submission, you must run the benchmark with default setting 80k decimals.
I gave the new version a try at 360,000, but it never completes.
It's going to take a very very long time to complete with 360.000 decimals. It will complete at one time, just leave the benchmark running. It's exponential complexity. For 10k decimals its takes in 0 sec, 800ms, for 20k decimals 2 sec 900ms... and for 80k decimals 54 sec. CPU: i5 3330 @ 3Ghz, 4 cores.
heres my score.. altough i must say with my 2600k on default 3.5ghz 8 threads its about 7 sec faster then with HT off and @ 4.6 ghz.... what's that about?
It's multi-threaded. 8 threads at 3.5GHz > 4 threads at 4.6GHz in multithreaded apps(that can utilize 8 threads) because you can get much more throughput.
I clicked on the link to download it and it just says "You've been permanently banned from the forums"...
Guess I don't get to try it.
NVM: Used a proxy to get it...which kind of shows the pointlessness of using IP bans.
with HT ON 4.6ghz. but why should we turn off HT ? more and more games/software are being designed for multithreaded optimization..
Here is mine. The correct frequency is 3.6GHz though:
Possible bug: I use multiple monitors. When I clicked Submit to HWBOT to get the screen shot, it took a screenshot of my primary monitor, which didn't have the Multi Core Pi window on it.
Also, why it is so slow? I'd expect a multi-threaded Pi program to calculate Pi a heck of a lot faster than this. Or did you intentionally make it slow because it is meant to be a benchmark?
maybe u where banned for another reason, or someone used your ip as a mask to do some crazy stuff...
Never been on those forums before in my life. Ah the life of having a dynamic IP...
hmm that's strange then. try to contact the websites admin or mods or something.. to rectify the problem
Works well except the CPU Frequency is wrong. I set power options to performance to force the CPU clock to 4.5Ghz, but it doesn't make a difference.
It probably doesn't read straps, so it's seeing 100x36 rather than 125x36.
Very true. Still a bug nonetheless.
