Thumbs up Phun Physics Benchmark!

So you think you have a powerful processor ? we'll see about that after you run this benchy!
this phun sandbox seems to put more stress on the CPU than Crysis!!

Instructions :
A) Download Phun Physics Sandbox here (its only 2mb!) : http://www.phun.at/
B) Open program & load "circles" scene
C) Now check this screenshot & do the following steps :



D) Set you window at a res of 1280x1024 (or something close i dont think it matters that much) & make sure all options are checked exactly like in the screenshot (simple water rendering unchecked) & zoom as shown above.
D1) right click & select the option "liquify selected" for circle no.1
D2) Repeat the same for circle no.2
D3) Click the play button as shown in no.3

E) Wait for a few seconds as the liquid pours down through the circles & recored your lowest framerate (minimum) & post it along with your CPU specs.

So far i've got a min.fps of 3fps using a P4:3GHz
& a min.fps of 9-10fps using a C2Q Q6600@3Ghz

(i.e. Q6600@3Ghz is around 3.5 times faster than an oldie Northwood P4:3Ghz)

now dont be ashamed to post your results! bring it on!

I think this program has some problems with CPU usage.

I noticed that has some incredible slow downs some times, and it can't possibly be more complex than something like Gary's mod for Half-Life 2, which runs far better and is 3D.

I just ran your test and the lowest I hit was 13fps. Task Manager showed up to 67% CPU usage. Around 70% on core 0 and 60% on core 1.

The strange thing is, the simulation doesn't even have to be running for it to put a heavy load on the CPU.

This is a really cool program but I think the physics engine itself could be a lot better.

Something like this programmed with PhysX and GPU accelerated physics would be amazing.

Yeah i believe so .. its still interesting to see how it scales with different CPU's at difference speeds & configs!

Yeah yeah i'm just trying to get your attention to this little program. its cool , fun to try & an easy way to figure where your CPU stacks up

My work PC is embarrassed to show its results.

I got 16fps lowest average 19fps, but only used 26% of 4 cores max 30%

Cool i was interested to see how the Penryns perform in this benchmark!

Thanks for this link. This is a really cool application. Now I can see how well my new AMD quad core is performing. I am really curious about this, since I have not noticed a huge increase in performance since I upgraded. It would be nice to see what the actually stats are. I am looking to buy a new graphics card, am wondering if it would be worth my effort to check out hhgregg? Never been there, so I'm not really sure. Thanks.
