I thought we could start a page with just benchmarks for the various systems. No arguing over who's to blame for whatever issues and minimal commenting, just pure benchmarks. Right now people are posting benchmarks many want to see to make a buying decision but they are scattered all over the place and hard to make actual comparisons. Here are a list of popular benchmarks. Send me a link to any that I missed to put at the top of the page. Please feel free to run any of these as you'd like. Just list your system specs first, then what you ran. For Example: 2.6/512/16/560x Intel Power Gadget https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-power-gadget-20 Geekbench https://www.geekbench.com Cinebench https://www.maxon.net/en/products/cinebench/ Prime 95 https://www.mersenne.org/download/ V-Ray Benchmark https://www.chaosgroup.com/vray/benchmark Blender Benchmark https://code.blender.org/2016/02/new-cycles-benchmark/ Blackmagic Disk Speed Test https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/blackmagic-disk-speed-test/id425264550?mt=12 After Effects Benchmark mediafire.com/file/qgoacxne6567wxn/AE_Test_2016.zip BruceX: Final Cut Pro X Benchmark https://blog.alex4d.com/2013/10/30/brucex-a-new-fcpx-benchmark/ WebGL: Run in Safari https://beta.unity3d.com/jonas/WebGLBenchmark Fortnite: Frames Per Second Test? https://www.epicgames.com/fortnite/en-US/download DigiLloyd Photoshop Benchmark - Run Medium or High https://macperformanceguide.com/OptimizingPhotoshopCS6-Benchmarks.html And if you're one of the few people that happen to have two different 2018 machines and would like to run some real world test comparing the same After Effects file for example on both computers please feel free to post those benchmarks as well.
