    BOINC benchmarks - post your MIPS scores

    The benchmark thread revived by Plonk made me think "Why not a thread with BOINC benchmarks?"
    I'll start with the benchmarks of my ARM fleet

    Raspberry Pi Model B+
    CPU: A single-core Broadcom ARMv6-compatible processor ARM11, rev 7 (v6l), in short ARM1176JZF-S aka BCM2835 when made SOC

      1965 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU
    • Banana Pro @1000MHz - Armbian 4.9
      565 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU
      2059 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU


    Raspberry Pi 2, Model B
    CPU: A quad-core Broadcom ARMv7-A compatible processor ARM Cortex-A7, rev 5 (v7l) aka BCM2836
    Features: half, thumb, fastmult, VFP, edsp, NEON, VFPv3, tls, VFPv4, idiva, idivt, VFPd32, lpae, evtstrm
    • Raspberry Pi 2@900MHz

      1704 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU
    • Raspberry Pi 2@1000MHz
      491 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU
      1895 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU

    These MIPS values I had taken from a L'Alliance Francophone forum. Quite suspicious: the posting dates from July 2013, long before the RasPi 2 hit the market.
    Much to my chagrin I could not obtain these values myself. Even when OC-ing to 1000 MHz I got stuck at 292 MIPS floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU and 1143 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU: worse than the RasPi 1 at that speed! So I searched for an answer. It seemed that those froggies must have had installed Debian Jessie -but in 2013?- in order to get the NEON capabilities of the RasPi2....but installing Jessie got me no further than 293 MIPS floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU and 1163 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU -and a more up-to-date BOINC client (7.4.23).

    After a while my Raspi2 hickupped and refused to work. As my work as DHL courier took a forever greater part of my working days, I was unable to change this until one free evening. Through Synaptic I installed some extra armhf related files and see:

    • Raspberry Pi 2@1000MHz armhf updated
      489 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU and
      1448 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU!

    Still not quite the values of our amphibious friends yet, but quite an improvement...
    Now to unlock the secrets of integer performance
    Through Synaptic I installed some extra 'integer' related files and behold:

    • Raspberry Pi 2@1000MHz integer updated
      489 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU
      1944 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU a nous les petites françaises!....

    i7-860: (2.8gHz (21x133) ...looks like turbo mode didn't kick in)

    2840 Whetstone (approx) when running 4 cores w/ Hyperthreading (8 threads)
    3290 Whetstone (approx) when running 3 cores w/o Hyperthreading (3 threads)
    8360 Dhrystone (approx)

    Just had to replace my CPU as old one (2yrs old) died due to paste setting rock hard.

    Number of CPUs: 8
    3255 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU

    But what CPU is it?

    A likewise insane increase in integer MIPS I noticed upgrading my Raspberry Pi B+ to Raspbian Stretch, after some extra GCC libraries I reached 8000 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) on the ARM-11....
    That's a nine-fold increase over the previous benchmark ran under Raspbian Jessie!

    MIPS-wise, Windows is no-go area

    I assume you are pulling such stupid numbers because Linux utilizes the GPU part of the chip for general calculations? How does this affect run times of CPU projects? What did you have to do to pull such high numbers? I may just have to get a few APUs if they vastly accelerate CPU work on certain projects.

    I do not think Linux utilizing the GPU part of the chip has anything to do with it, as I upgraded the systems with the same APU from 'older' Linux versions. I am most amazed at the numbers myself, but it may have to do with the version of the BOINC client, combined with the Linux kernel. I saw the same rocketing integer values with my humble Raspberry Pi B+, where the GPU part does not play a role. The fact that a Windows 10 system does hardly benefits from the BOINC client upgrade points to the Linux kernel.

    Do we know of projects that rely heavy on integer performance?
