Outdated Octane Benchmark Score on Raspberry Pi 4 1 GB RAM

Wed Jun 26, 2019 10:57 pm

Thought if anyone was interested I would post my Octane Benchmark score for the Raspberry Pi 4 1 GB RAM straight out of the box, no logging into anything, just going immediately to http://chromium.github.io/octane/.

Score for the Raspberry Pi 4 1 GB RAM was 7652.

This benchmark is outdated, but I still like to compare SBCs with it. Lots of variables, YMMV. For comparison, my other testing showed:
Jetson Nano was 7671
Rpi 3B+ was 2802.

And apparently there's a major issue in the Chromium build in Buster that requires that they disable GPU to work around it. Apparently the octane score will likely go up fairly significantly once they reenable GPU.

Doubtful.

Octane is a Javascript benchmark that doesn't do much in terms of graphics. But out of curiosity I set my gaming laptop to switch to the Nvidia GPU when running Chrome, and I got a score of ... (drum roll please) ... 40077

Which is nearly identical to the score I posted above using the Intel integrated graphics.

Outdated Octane Benchmark Score on Raspberry Pi 4 4 GB RAM is 8454.

Just trying to show rpi scores. Yes, have lots of other scores from other OS and boxes, but hoping this is helpful to the Rpi community to compare and contrast old benchmarks to new 4 versions.

GPU might actually matter.

On my n3350-based Chromebook on M75, the octane score is 10903.
Running the version of chromium in Debian Stable, M73 I think, via Crostini (which on most chromebooks doesn't support GPU acceleration) the score is 8885.

There is a cpu penalty, although the benchmarks I've done seem to suggest it's much smaller than that, perhaps so much so that the cpu overhead from ChromeOS with the vm layer might be less than the overhead of running windows on the same hardware.

Anyway, we'll see,

The best way to check might be to have someone run it from the menu and then run it from the command line to see if the score is significantly different.

Since the Pi4 is being touted as having true desktop PC performance now, comparisons to other systems are both inevitable and important. By the time you add the PSU, case, SD card and other accessories needed to turn a $35-$55 Pi4 into a Desktop PC, you may approach the pricing of a budget Chromebook, so I imagine a lot of people would like to know how they compare.

The Pi4 score posted above is significantly lower than my Chromebook, but mine is a mid-tier model. However, it is over 2.6X faster than my Pi 3B+ score, so that's pretty cool.

Still a week before my Pi4 computers ship (estimated ship date, July 5) ... :(

8k or so octane score is very usable.

And as far as I can tell, one fast core is gonna beat more not as fast cores in octane. Or at the very least, 2 fast cores beats 4 not so fast cores. Look at the n3060 getting 8.8k-ish vs the n3160 getting 8k-ish. Apparently the 3060's turbo boost is higher than the 3160's because they have the same thermal and power budget, but the n3160 has 4 cores vs the n3060's 2

EDITED to add, the octane score on something like a pi4 might vary somewhat depending on how badly you abuse it thermally, if it's in the official case in a hot room, it wouldn't surprise me if it was going in and out of throttling during an octane test.

Saw the official case and thought that the pi4 is going to need a fan because my temps were already higher than I like without a case so didn't purchase. The outdated octane scores I posted didn't include any case in a relatively cool room.

Just tried that on my 2018 iPad Pro. 41794
