Revision History

pts/encode-ape-1.4.0   [View Source]   Sat, 19 Dec 2020 14:50:10 GMT
While this test profile has been deprecated, update against latest open source code so at least it can be downloaded and builds for those who want it.

pts/encode-ape-1.3.1   [View Source]   Wed, 07 Feb 2018 12:40:53 GMT
Deprecate the test profile since the source to updated versions is no longer easily available and latest releases appear to be Windows-only.

pts/encode-ape-1.3.0   [View Source]   Mon, 06 Dec 2010 14:39:54 GMT
Initial import into OpenBenchmarking.org


Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Monkey Audio Encoding 3.99.6

WAV To APE

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 545 public results since 19 December 2020 with the latest data as of 29 November 2022.

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.
