wPrime is a
leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor
performance by calculating square roots with a recursive call of Newton's method
for estimating functions. The less time it takes the faster is your processor.
UnRAR-crack is a free
RAR password cracker. It employs various techniques to maximize cracking speed
(e.g. using SSE2, SSSE3, etc. to test more passwords at once, and using
multithreading to take advantage of multi-core/hyperthreaded processors).
UnRAR-crack benchmark uses the password cracking core of UnRAR-crack to test the
performance of your system. It works by launching several thousand password
checks and measuring the average testing speed, in passwords per second. It
repeats the same procedure for different number of threads (up to the max your
system can utilize), and using different crypto functions (SSE2-optimized,
SSSE3-optimized, etc.). Using it, you can measure the SMP boost, the SSE unit
performance, etc. The higher is the number the faster is your processor.
