Benchmarks: AmigaOne X1000 compared with other PPC-hardware (Update)
The first benchmarks of the AmigaOne X1000 have been posted on various forums (sources: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5). The following graphics were created by MorphOS developer Harry 'Piru' Sintonen, used here with kind permission from Mr. Sintonen.


With the MP3 encoder LAME the file AKsack.wav was converted into the MP3 format without using any parameters. All systems used LAME builds with Altivec support. The value for the X1000 was confirmed by OS4-developer Hans de Ruiter.


With the raytracer Blender the included example bricks_and_water_plugin.blend was rendered with the following command line:

blender_binary -b projects/bricks_and_water_plugin.blend -o ram:pool -F JPEG -f 0

The value for the X1000 was reported by AmigaOne tester sundown, the value for the Sam440ep by the developer who ported Blender to AmigaOS 4, Andy "broadblues" Broad.

MPlayer: H264-decoding

With the MorphOS MPlayer (and the corresponding AmigaOS 4 port MUI-Mplayer) and the parameters specified below the graphic the H264-encoded video file was decoded without showing the result on the screen. The value for the X1000 was reported by X1000-tester Stephen "stevieu" Umney.


Using the client, keys for the OGR-NG and RC5-72 projects were calculated (source). All Systems are using the Altivec unit of their processor for these tests - with the exception of the Sam460, which doesn't have Altivec.

Copying file

A 46 Mb file (AKsack.wav) was copied from one partition to another and then from a partition to the Ram Disk. The results of this test are affected by many external factors like the filesystem used or the mass storage device the partitions reside on. The value for the X1000 was reported by X1000 owner Mufa.


The benchmark tool RageMem tests the access time for various memory types. Due to a missing MorphOS version, the test on a PowerMac was performed running the AmigaOS 4 build on OS4Emu:
