Octane Javascript benchmark

Postposted on Fri Aug 24, 2012 9:22 am

Have you tried Google's Octane Javascript benchmark suite yet?
http://octane-benchmark.googlecode.com/ ... index.html

Please post your results here.
The reason I am posting this in the mobile tech section, is that the results from mobile devices are probably the most interesting to see.

Here are results from two devices:

1. HP Touchpad: Score 858
Firmware: CM9 alpha (ICS based)
Browser : Chrome on Android

2. X120e (AMD E350 netbook): 3421
Windows 7 HP
Chrome

Well 63 views and no response? I hope at least someone here has the time to run the benchmark on their phone/tablet/netbook etc :)
Please feel free to post your results. Will be interesting to compare performance.

Go on then, I'll play...
5757 on an XPS 14 using Opera 12.01 Win7 Pro. Pretty much the same in Win 8

Tried with IE 9 but didn't work at all and can't be bothered with it to work out why!

Edit: Out of interest I just installed Chrome and I get 13226. Draw your own conclusions from that...

Edit 2: Tested on IE 11 on Win8 Enterprise. It works! I get 2575 on the same machine.

Thanks! :)

I also found this thread where lots of people have posted Octane benchmarks from various devices, such as Galaxy SIII, Nexus 7 etc: http://mobilesyrup.com/2012/08/21/googl ... d-tablets/

There seems to be a lot of variability in the results reported by various people for the same device.

18567

Chrome 21 on my desktop (2500K @ 4.3ghz)

edit: it seems to run in 1 thread, I don't know if that's a property of the benchmark or the browser/javascript engine

Thanks! Yes AFAIK the benchmark itself runs in 1 thread. There may be slight advantage to having a dual-core system as some activites (such as JIT compilation of javascript, or system activities) may be done in another thread, but the benchmark code is single-threaded. But then again, most Javascript benchmarks such as Sunspider, Mozilla Kraken are single threaded as Javascript does not have good APIs to do multi-threaded computation. There are WebWorkers, but those have limited applicability IMO and not used in this benchmark.
