Workload and Benchmark information

A. SYSmark 25 is a benchmark from the BAPCo* consortium that measures the performance of Windows* platforms. SYSmark 25 tests three usage scenarios: Productivity, Creativity and Responsiveness. SYSmark contains real applications from Independent Software Vendors such as Microsoft* and Adobe*.

B. Code.Org workload – With DOGONews and Google Meet as background tasks. This workload measures the time to load Code. Org in the browser and to render the Universal Archimedes Spriral using the code that is pre-written as a part of the project.

C. Education Collaboration: Stem projects Session - The performance of a project session is based on the working run times of individually measured operations. This Session replicates the real-world scenario of a student working collaboratively on various STEM projects. The Session begins with the user launching DOGONews and Google Meet. These will keep running as background tasks as the user collaboratively works on the various STEM projects. The User works on projects through various educational applications like GeoGebra, & finally TinkerCAD. The various projects are run sequentially and there is time lapse between the projects (which is not counted in the total time of Session) similar to kids taking breaks between work, though the collaboration continues.

D. WebXPRT 3 is a benchmark from Principled Technologies that measures JavaScript/HTML5 performance using web applications based on real world usages, like Photo Enhancement, Organize Album Using AI, Stock Option Pricing, Encrypt Notes and OCR Scan, Sales Graphs, and Online Homework. It produces results for each of the test scenarios plus an overall score.

E. 3DMark Fire Strike measures DirectX 11 gaming performance for PCs, and includes two graphics tests, a physics test and a combined test that stresses the CPU and GPU.

F. CrXPRT 2 is published by Principled Technologies (PT), an open-source community and host of the BenchmarkXPRT* development forum. CrXPRT tests Chromebook Performance using real-world scenarios: Photo Effects, Face Detection (JavaScript), Offline Notes, Stocks Dashboard, DNA Sequence Analysis, and 3D Shapes with WebGL. Each scenario produces individual metrics that roll up to an overall score.
