Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Multichase Pointer Chaser

Test: 1GB Array, 256 Byte Stride, 4 Threads

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 412 public results since 11 February 2016 with the latest data as of 22 January 2024.

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.
