Calculator Performance Index - toml_12953 - 04-14-2020 01:00 AM
On the website https://www.thimet.de/CalcCollection/CalcPerformance.html there is a benchmark written in a number of languages and run on a good selection of calculators. One problem, though, is the computation of the Performance Index, P. The site shows this: P = 34 / T where T is the time the benchmark took. The performance indices shown, however, use this formula: P = 34 * N / T where N is the number of loops. In most cases, these will be the same since N = 1 but quite a few of the examples use more than one loop. That must be taken into account to get the Performance Indices shown in the timing tables. |
