PPBM5 Update

Due to popular requests, we have added some additional information to the results.

We have added similar results pages as the existing Overall Results, that you have all seen.

There are now pages available for each of the tests, Disk I/O, MPEG2-DVD, H.264 and MPE Results, that are sorted first on the test of specific interest to you and next on the RPI, Relative Performance Index.

With these additions we hope to give you additional insight in what makes a specific configuration fast.

One of the clear benefits is that it is now easy to see, as an example, that large arrays play a definite role to propel the Disk I/O test to great results. At least far easier than it was previously.

Have a look and let us know what you think about these enhancements. PPBM5 Benchmark

And another addition, labeled Latest News.

It contains a new chart that shows the Top 25 Bang-for-the-Buck systems, to help in deciding what gives the best value for money.

Hope you find it informative and beneficial.

How is the best bang for the buck calculated? I like the idea of having the chart :)

Would you mind sharing what components make the best bang for the buck?

Based on my research for my next build, I would say:
i7 950 for $230 at MicroCenter
Gigabyte UD3R Motherboard ~$200
12GB RAM
GT240 with 1GB DDR5 memory OR GTS450
Hyper212+ CPU Cooler so you can overclock

Thanks again for all the work put into these benchmarks.

Peter,

1000*(1/RPI)/$

Or in more layman terms: The inverse of the Relative Performance Index, divided by the calculated cost in $ and then multiplied by 1000 to get a scale from around 1 to 8.
