    Super Pi


    Super Pi is a very popular windows benchmarking tool, basicaly it calculates pi and sees how long it takes your processor to get to how ever many decimals you told it to. Most commonly benchmarkers use 1 million. You can download it here
    ftp://pi.super-computing.org/Linux/super_pi.tar.gz
    its only a few KB's, when it asks you what to calculate type 20 (signifying a 20bit number).



    those are the results for my amd64 @ 1.8ghz

    I didn't think there was a version of Super PI for Linux!

    Thanks a12ctic!

    Now I wanna see if there is a speed difference between OS's calculating PI...

    awww... here i was thinking there would be some good pie on offer in this topic
    a12tic: you know benchmarking windows is against the EULA
    i might have a crack at this sometime
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    'How I wish I could calculate pie.'

    How = 3 .
    I = 1
    wish = 4
    I = 1
    could = 5
    calculate = 9
    pie (errr... well okay!) = 3 ---------->

    i don't think they benchmark windows, but the computers themselves. for example, benchmarking a CPU is ok, but you can't use the same software to benchmark windows and compare it to something else (the EULA says that if you do benchmark it, you must keep the results private).

    That's because the results may be very embarrasing for Microsoft
