Speedometer browser benchmark: show me yours and I'll show you mine


#1

I mentioned a fun benchmark in a previous topic:

http://browserbench.org/Speedometer

Chrome 59 was just released a day or two ago, and it has the new rebuilt Turbofan and Ignition JavaScript engine on by default now! 🎉

As covered here and here, Google folks feel this benchmark represents the best proxy of real world web performance out there:

We have been adding ways to Chrome infrastructure to measure performance from inside the browser, which gave a lot of important insight, but is not portable across browsers. From these investigations I am concluding that Speedometer might be the best proxy for real world performance that is currently available. We will follow up with a detailed blog post about the real world performance effort soon.

some baseline results as of Dec 2016:

Core i7 Kabylake Chrome      208
Core i7 Skylake Chrome       185
2016 iPhone 7                111
2016 Macbook (Chrome)         86
2015 iPad Pro                 85
2015 iPhone 6s                82
Core i7 Skylake Edge/FF       64
2016 Macbook (Safari)         63
2014 iPad Air 2               48
2013 iPhone 5s                32
2016 OnePlus 3                24
2015 Nexus 6p                 23

Go ahead and post your results. Show me yours and I’ll show you mine 😉

Fuck Qualcomm right in their Qualcomm-hole

I get ~221 now with the slightly overclocked Kaby Lake and Chrome latest on Windows 10.


#3

Late 2013 iMac i5 3.4 Ghz, 16gb. GTX 775, 2048 MB. MacOS Sierra.

Safari 153
Chrome 144.4

My PC: i7-4790 @ 3.6GHz. 16gb. GTX 970. Windows 10 Home.

Chrome: 147


#4

Is this at all affected by addons, greasemonkey scripts, adblockers, no-script etc?


#5

AMD FX-4170m, GTX 750 TI, Win 10, Chrome

77.4

Lower numbers are better right?


#6

Mine was 40.2. Should I be worried?


#7

i5 4670k, 12GB of RAM, Firefox, Win10:

25.0

On the other hand, said Firefox instance is memory leaking like a motherfucker and currently consuming 1.2gb of RAM. . .


#8

Yes it can be, we learned that in previous topic. Turn them off and try again.


#9

Sorry. I didn’t read the previous topic. Please don’t beat me. :)


#10

The beatings will continue until scores improve.


#11

Sorry. I meant, don’t beat me again.


#12

#13

#14

I left Ghostery on for both of my machines’ tests, seems it didn’t affect it much judging by everyone else’s scores.


#15

I turned all my extensions off and my score jumped to 77.4 to 86.2.


#16

I was getting about 120 (uBlock and other adds enabled) and 147 (adds disabled) on Chrome 58, then I upgraded to Chrome 59 and got up to about 190.


#17

Hah, I went to check which version of Chrome I had running, and it updated to 59.

Core i5 4670 (non-K version), Windows 7

Chrome with extensions: 116
Chrome w/o extensions: 163.1
Firefox w/o extensions: 59.4


#18

Chrome was 59. Test ran with extension

Windows 7 64 bit, i7 920 CPU, 16GB RAM

Speedometer score = 73.9

Not too shabby, it seems.


#19

Almost as good as an iPhone 7!


#20

Yet only one has a headphone jack.
