Board » Technical Discussion » General System Spec - to aid SOL development

Page: 1 2 3 4 Next

Post annotated by RainbowChaser :
This thread was moved from the category General Discussion.
To improve the development process for the sailonline client application, it would be good to know a few things about the systems people use to run SOL on.
There are just a few categories of specifications we are inteerested in, so please fill it out and we can hopefully develop the client to better run on the higher end systems, while still being ok on the lower end ones.

****************************************
****************************************
To make life easier for all, I found a small free benchmark program that is available for both PC and Mac. Called NovaBench it will reduce things to a few key numbers, and you can simply cut and paste the system specs from the report page. It is approx 11Mb download and tests take about 1-2 minutes.
Please Post what you see on result page (you can just select all text, including overall result, and copy & paste - HDD info not necessary).
[This also allows better comparison between Win & Mac machines]
****************************************
****************************************

Please also indicate, whether your machine is a desktop or laptop, screen resolution and size, and a rough age in years (or < 1)

Also your Internet download speed:

Use the http://speedtest.net service for 'real-world' results, as often you are not achieving what your ISP claims as their connection speed.


Example NovaBench output:
NovaBench Score: 287

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
