Mini 10v benchmark competition (aka is my 10v ****ed?) - 03-11-2010, 11:16 AM
There might be some problem with my new Dell Mini 10v, and I would like your help to find out. Time for a benchmark-competition! Join in if you wanna break me or if you are just interested in the performance of our beloved platform. Competition requires OS X with a subleague for Linux/Ubuntu.
My wooes started when I tried to create an encrypted truecrypt-container, it writes the file with ~7-8 MB/s :-/ According to truecrypt forums and other posts an Atom N270 should be able to push 30 MB/s. I want to know if my 10 V is faulty or just a bad model.
But lets start with an easy task for the first leg. All other apps should be closed for competition!
Round 1 Xbench OS X only
A Download Xbench
B Run XBench, choose all tests
C (Optional) Use submit to upload your results to their servers
D Report cpu and total score here, post the link if you submitted.
Round 2 Truecrypt container creation. Linux/OS X
A Download Truecrypt for OS X or Truecrypt for Linux.
B Install TrueCrypt
C commands below in your terminals.
sudo su;cd /Applications/TrueCrypt.app/Contents/MacOS/
time ./TrueCrypt -t -c /tmp/throwaway --encryption=aes --hash=whirlpool --filesystem=none --password=asdfgh123456 --random-source=/dev/urandom --volume-type=normal --size=2000000000 -k ""
time truecrypt -t -c /tmp/throwaway --encryption=aes --hash=whirlpool --filesystem=none --password=asdfgh123456 --random-source=/dev/urandom --volume-type=normal --size=2000000000 -k ""
E Run the above command three times and make an average of the "real" value.
F Report here.
Round 3 gzippin it
A In terminal, OS X & Linux
cd /tmp/; time gzip throwaway
C Report here
Now I will go about and run above, report here, and hope for profit. Thanks for your help!

I have 2GB RAM, otherwise identical.
I have a dual boot XP and OSX using a MBR. If possible I'd like to use the XP install to encrypt the whole disk with truecrypt and then run XBench again to see how it compares.
