These tests measure the CPU's peak performance with low memory access overhead
The SIMD benchmark evaluates a processor's ability to handle multiple data elements in a single instruction. SIMD instructions are used to perform high-speed mathematical calculations, such as those used in image processing and data analysis.
The scalar CPU benchmark test is a performance evaluation that measures a processor's ability to handle a single data element in each instruction. This type of test is designed to measure a processor's ability to perform basic mathematical operations
These tests measure the CPU's performance with varied levels of memory access
The compression test is designed to measure the processor's ability to perform tasks that require high-speed data compression and decompression, such as those used in video and audio encoding, data transmission, and file storage. Novabench uses DEFLATE compression.
The cryptography test is designed to measure a processor's ability to perform tasks that require the use of cryptographic hash functions, such as those used in data encryption and authentication. Novabench uses the BLAKE3 hash function.
