PC Tech Journal System Benchmarks Version 1.00 PCTECHline READ.ME

The benchmarks contained here are described in detail in "High Level
Benchmarks," Kent Quirk, PC Tech Journal, September 1988, p. 54. This
article discusses the logic behind their design, the test methods, how
to run them, and how to interpret the results.

The benchmark programs can be run standalone or under the control of
HLBENCH. Each benchmark program has options that can be used when
run the program is run standalone to modify the performance of the
test. Results obtained using the tests in this configuration are not
comparable to results obtained using their normal configuration.
A description of options available can be obtained by entering the
test name followed by -? at the DOS prompt.

The following files are used for running the benchmarks:

File Purpose

IBMAT339.TIM IBM AT Model 339

Source code for the benchmark programs can be downloaded from
PCTECHline. They must be compiled and linked using Microsoft C 5.1
to produce tests that yield the same results as the executable versions.
