3.5- Windows Benchmark

These results are obtained from complex benchmarks, not included in the library because they use non free software. (If you are interested in the details, contact fjtapia@gmail.com)

There are 3 types of benchmarks,

  • 64 bits integers
  • strings
  • objects of several sizes.

The objects are arrays of integers. The heavy comparison sums all the elements in each, and the light comparison uses only the first number of the array.

This benchmark ran on a VirtualBox virtual machine with 8 threads and 16 GB of RAM, running over a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5820K CPU @ 3.30GHz with 6 cores and 2 threads by core, and 15M of cache.

OBJECTS RANDOMLY FILLED

The objects are arrays of 64 bits numbers

They are compared in two ways :

(H) Heavy : The comparison is the sum of all the numbers of the array.

(L) Light : The comparison is using only the first element of the array, as a key
