mandelbrot benchmark N=16,000

Each chart bar shows how many times slower, one ↓ mandelbrot program was, compared to the fastest program.

These are not the only programs that could be written. These are not the only compilers and interpreters. These are not the only programming languages.

Column × shows how many times more each program used compared to the benchmark program that used least.

 mandelbrot benchmark : Generate Mandelbrot set portable bitmap file

You can write your own program for this task and contribute to the benchmarks game by following these general instructions.

More specifically:

cmp program output N = 200 with this 5KB output file to check your program is correct before contributing.

We are trying to show the performance of various programming language implementations - so we ask that contributed programs not only give the correct result, but also use the same algorithm to calculate that result.

Mandlebrot output N=200,converted to PNG

Each program should plot the Mandelbrot set [-1.5-i,0.5+i] on an N-by-N bitmap. Write output byte-by-byte in portable bitmap format.

For more information see Eric W. Weisstein, "Mandelbrot Set." From MathWorld--A Wolfram Web Resource.
