Powerflasher Benchmark

Posted on July 18, 2005

Test your machine's flash performance with the powerflasher benchmark.

The benchmark gives you a total score by testing seven categories:

  • Maths
  • Controlling Structures
  • Bitmap graphics
  • Drawing
  • Masking
  • Embedded Video
  • Transparency

My dual 1.8 GHz PowerPC G5 running OS X 10.3.9 / Safari 1.3 / Flash 8 Beta scored a total of 913 points, which is a long way off from the top score of 4018. (Obviously one of the newer macs).

wicked link. Some amazing actionscript going on in that test. I scored 896 on my g4 1.67 powerbook running Tiger, safari 2 and player 8 beta. That 4000 entry mustve been a cluster of dual g5's hahaha....

Hmm, Maybe with a score of 321 I might need to consider an upgrade at home.
