LLR benchmark thread
I'm thinking of replacing my old Pentium 4 processor, so could you run some or all of these tests and tell me how long it takes to complete?
1.) k value between 100 and 200, n value between 500,000 and 501,000 2.) k value between 100 and 200, n value between 600,000 and 601,000 3.) k value between 300 and 2000, n value between 500,000 and 501,000 4.) k value between 300 and 2000, n value between 600,000 and 601,000 5.) k value above 1M, n value between 500,000 and 501,000 Any chip you have will do, but I'm especially interested in the AMD Phenom II X6 1055T and the Intel core i7 920. If you're not running your comps on stock settings, please say what your overclock is. Thanks in advance.

You're asking the wrong question, but only barely. What you want to do is find what your current iteration time is for a range of FFT sizes. Asking someone to user any k from 300 to 2000 allows for more than one FFT size.
I suggest you post time per iteration (which allows you to find time per test by multiplying by the specific exponent) for FFTs at 48k, 56k, 64k, perhaps 80k. These should give you more useful data. My machines are all overclocked, so I am not posting times (and I have only core2's and P4's anyway). Curtis

Core 2 quad at 3.20Ghz (stock is 2.66, DDR2 at 800):
80k 1.25ms 56k .88x ms All four cores were running, two 80k and two 56k. These scale nearly linearly, which is roughly to be expected from the code. Yours do also, save for 56k being a little high (possible background process, etc). This becomes less true for Mersennesized FFTs or really small FFTs, but for top5000 thru small megadigit searches, it's mostly linear. Say, 32k through 224k FFT sizes. Thus, anyone who reports a chip and timing for a single FFT in your range tells you all you need to know. I'd personally like to see 80k, since that's the size both 6th and 7th drives are using right now. 9th drive is at 56k. Curtis

Just get the fastest Intel cpu based machine you can afford.
With as many cpu's and cores.
