PYPrime 1.x PYPrime 2.x Downloads Rules

PYPrime 1.x


PYPrime is an Open Source Python based benchmark.
It targets all platforms that support Python 3, thus there is no difference in running it under an x86 or arm platform.
PYPrime scales well with single core performance but does not leverage multiple cores, it could be made more efficient by using numba, but that would make the installation more complicated or limit compatibility.

Requirements:

Python 3.x, I would suggest using Python 3.8
RAM: 1GB (It can work with less RAM, but I don't recommended it since this benchmark can be somewhat mermory intensive)
OS: Linux, macOS, Windows, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris, IOS (Jailbroken), Android...
Architectures: x86, x86_64, PPC64, arm, s390x...


Installation:

In all cases verify you have python installed, you can do so by opening the Terminal and typing "python3 --version"


Windows:

-Download the .zip archive containing all the reqired files
-Unzip the folder
-Open PYPrime.py by doubleclicking on it
If you are using Windows 10 on arm download the precompiled AArch64 portable binaries (until there's an official release that is)

Linux:

-Download the .zip archive containing all the reqired files in the directory of your choice by typing "wget #LINK TO VERSION OF YOUR CHOICE#"
-Navigate into the directory of your choice by typing in the Shell "cd /PATHTOMYDIR/MYDIR"
-Unzip the downloaded file by typing "unzip "PYPrime 1.x.zip""
-Navigate into the PYPrime directory by typing "cd "PYPrime 1.x""
-Run the Python Script by typing: "python3 PYPrime.py"

macOS:

In macOS the installation procedure is similar to the linux one, but you will often use the GUI
-Download the .zip archive containing all required files, macOS will autimatically unizp it for you
-Go navigate into the downloads directory (or the folder where you downloaded the .zip archive) using the Shell
-Navigate into the PYPrime directory by typing "cd "PYPrime 1.x""
-Run the Python Script by typing: "python3 PYPrime.py"

Known Bugs:

-Performance is about 60% higher on UNIX based Systems than on Windows
