So what’s in it for you:
– .NET benchmarks: you can measure how well the latest processors run .NET applications. Why? With the launch of .NET Framework 3.0 the platform for developing the next generation applications for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 has become .NET.
– Java benchmarks: you can measure how well the latest processors run Java applications. Why? With the continued security implications for ActiveX components an the increased popularity of 3-rd party web-browsers (Firefox, Opera), Java applets are making a comeback.
– New charting: you can now easily compare the performance of the tested device with its speed and its (published) power (TDP)! Yes, you could make the graphs yourself but why not check it out? You can also save the results in a CSV/TAB/XML file and import it into other charting programs.
– SSE4 (Intel) and SSE4A (AMD) benchmark code-paths; those of you testing next-generation AMD & Intel chips may be interested in this.
