I’m getting ready to upgrade my AMD CPU. I was thinking it would be handy to work up a series of benchmarks to measure Dorico’s performance on any particular machine. I know there are plenty of benchmark tests available, but I mostly only care about Dorico in this case.
I know it would have to be a little informal, but I’d be really interested… both to see how the upgrade affects performance, and to see how other users’ machine perform.
If these tests were sufficiently taxing, they could be a helpful metric as users interact and look at upgrading to new systems.
Does anyone have suggestions for some specific, measurable tasks that could perhaps be timed? I had previously suggested something like adding 100 flows, then renaming one of them… or some sort of task related to condensing that could be performed with a stopwatch in hand. Thoughts?
