Title: NeXT benchmarks
Post by: Nitro on August 12, 2007, 11:07:39 pm
We're looking to upgrade the benchmark section of the NeXT software archives.  If you know of any NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP compatible benchmarks that we don't have, or newer versions of ones that we do have, please post a link to the files.

I ran Povray on my 33Mhz Turbo Colorstation a while back and it took just under an hour to render the standard skyvase benchmark (http://www.haveland.com/index.htm?povbench/index.php).

16 seconds is pretty zippy.  Just a tad faster than Black Hardware. :)
