Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Stargate Digital Audio Workstation 22.11.5

Sample Rate: 192000 - Buffer Size: 1024

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 439 public results since 23 November 2022 with the latest data as of 18 February 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.
