flu sux :(

Darklord has been doing most of the long haul testing. Turns out the FPU code simply doesn't work on later machines, even in GB4. So its put a huge spanner in the works :( I'm still tweaking and fixing bugs as I find them. I've found a new bug, so looking into fixing that.. I will post a updated version here when I have fixed up some things....

Small update -

dml has kindly taken on recoding the FPU routines. In fact hes gone a bit hyper and recoded all the assembly code and even added in a bunch of other stuff! Which is really great! So currently I am re-wiring GB6 to include the new assembly routines :)

The Version 6 will not work with a Nova Graphiccard driver under 15/16 and 24bit Colour, only 8bit (256 Colour) is working.

It come a error up "Arithmetic overflow at line 301 GUI14.BAS" ...

GEM Bench 4.03 works fine without any problems.

The version posted here is well old now, on Build 19... :lol:

On Build 14 line 301 was getting the number of colours in the current resolution.. the variable had a limited of 32768 :) Though that line isn't actually used in the code itself, it was just something I thought I might needed, but later used number of planes.

Anyway, thanks for the report, I will add into into list of things to fix :)

Just downloaded that Chris. Always worries me when I run CPU tests and I don't get 100%
Trying it now on my Mega STe and also my MiNT box (Aranym) for a laugh... :-)

You need to "save defaults" to calibrate to 100% scores on your machine, there are no valid reference files yet. I wouldn't worry to much about testing build14, its a few weeks old now :)

I'll await the newer version...

deja-vu http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=29168#p287659 :lol:

Build19 just has some odd cache issues to figure out, likely be a few days before a next build is posted, I'm not at home on weekends anyway, so no progress during that time.

GB606B20.zip (removed)

GB6 606 Build 20 BETA.

Default values are for a stock Falcon 030 (no FPU).

I've also included:

FALC030.GB6 Stock Falcon benchmark
DEFAULT.GB6 Default test file (same as FALC030.GB6)
CT60666.GB6 CT60 running at 66.66 MHZ.

I've not benchmarked any ST's yet as only have my test falcon hooked up right now.

Thanks to d.m.l for recoding the assembly routines! Please read the readme file for whats changed in each build along with known bugs. Mostly GB6 isn't tested on multitasking environments, though will run (probably) and may run in other resolutions.

Again, one thing to bare in mind is that GB6 should be run in ST-med resolution otherwise if you run in 256 colour on a falcon for example, the benchmark will not show 100% as 256 colour modes will run slower. So rather than having millions of benchmark files for every situation, please just run in med-res and save me some work :)

Ran fine on my both Falcons (313% and 779%), TT030 (422%) and MegaSTE (229%). Nice work, Chris.

Might be useful if you can save the benchmark file and post them to me for the TT and MSTE as I dont have those machines. Then I can include them in a future release of GB6 :)

I need to collect benchmarks from various machines anyway as I only have a Falcon CT60, STE, STFM here.

Re: GEMBENCH 6 BUILD 22

Postby exxos » Thu May 12, 2016 3:14 pm

GB6 BUILD 22 is now online.

http://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/GB6/index.htm

The current benchmarking files are.

CT6066 - CT60 @ 66mhz
DEFAULT - STE TOS 206 8mhz stock
STE20608 - same as above
STE20616 - STE TOS 206 @ 16mhz
STE20632 - STE TOS 206 @ 32mhz
FALCON30 - Stock falcon
STFMT28 - STFM running T28 booster (thanks Sophie)

If people have any other machines listed, please run GB6 using the "save defaults" option in the menu and then send me your DEFAULT.GB6 file so I can include it in future releases.

Please do not use any other benchmarking files from any previous versions as they are not compatible with the current build.

Setup: aranym
Reference: STE 68000
Integer Division test -> Arithmetic overflow at line 2806 in file E:\GB6\GUI22.BAS
The window vanishes never to return and it becomes unresponsive to menu clicks. Forced to kill it.

I imagine that aranym is running at some insane high speed ?

Line 2806 is when its working out the bar display and % values.. likely a overflow on the variable sizes I used.

Well, in my case I have to say not exactly. My aranym setup is not standard. I threw out fVDI in favor of NVDI and switched it to Videl mode, which effectively slows it down. However, the math might still be going crazy fast.
