Chia Blockchain VDF

Chia is a blockchain and smart transaction platform based on proofs of space and time rather than proofs of work with other cryptocurrencies. This test profile is benchmarking the CPU performance for Chia VDF performance using the Chia VDF benchmark. The Chia VDF is for the Chia Verifiable Delay Function (Proof of Time).

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark chia-vdf.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Chia Blockchain VDF 1.0.1

Test: Square Assembly Optimized

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 284 public results since 5 May 2021 with the latest data as of 20 June 2021.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

No, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does not generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
