V8 Benchmark Suite - version ?

Warning! The V8 benchmark has been updated! Consider running the Octane benchmark instead.
This page contains a suite of pure JavaScript benchmarks that we have used to tune V8. The final score is computed as the geometric mean of the individual results to make it independent of the running times of the individual benchmarks and of a reference system (score 100). Scores are not comparable across benchmark suite versions and higher scores means better performance: Bigger is better!
  • Richards
    OS kernel simulation benchmark, originally written in BCPL by Martin Richards (539 lines).
  • DeltaBlue
    One-way constraint solver, originally written in Smalltalk by John Maloney and Mario Wolczko (880 lines).
  • Crypto
    Encryption and decryption benchmark based on code by Tom Wu (1698 lines).
  • RayTrace
    Ray tracer benchmark based on code by Adam Burmister (904 lines).
  • EarleyBoyer
    Classic Scheme benchmarks, translated to JavaScript by Florian Loitsch's Scheme2Js compiler (4684 lines).
  • RegExp
    Regular expression benchmark generated by extracting regular expression operations from 50 of the most popular web pages (1761 lines).
  • Splay
    Data manipulation benchmark that deals with splay trees and exercises the automatic memory management subsystem (394 lines).
  • NavierStokes
    Solves NavierStokes equations in 2D, heavily manipulating double precision arrays. Based on Oliver Hunt's code (387 lines).

Note that benchmark results are not comparable unless both results are run with the same revision of the benchmark suite. We will be making revisions from time to time in order to fix bugs or expand the scope of the benchmark suite. For previous revisions and the change log see the revisions page.
