NovaBench is actually an over 17 MB download. Also not so easy for a semi-computer literate non-coder type person to use. I couldn't get anything like the results you posted. Maybe I downloaded the wrong thing, but I didn't see any other options in the link you posted.
Also I see you edited the post since I read it this morning (Cal time). So I don't know how the info I spent the time to pull out relates to you original request.
Actually I think you should just assume that most solers use off the shelf computers...probably 90% laptops with integrated graphic chipsets. I doubt that very many are using alien-ware hi-end gaming machines.

Here in central Cal, depending on where I'm connecting I get from .3 Mbps to 3Mbps down and from .15 Mbps to 1.9 Mbps up on my 3G donaggle. At the coffee shop on DSL 1.2 ~ 1.5 Mbps down and .3 ~ .5 up.

I have a 15.5'" wide screen display. 1366 x 786 resolution...32 bit color depth...60Hz refresh rate.

My machine has 2GB RAM, Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3400 (2.16 GHz), with standard (HP) Mobile Intel 4 Series Chipset graphics board.
OS is Win Vista SP2 (fully updated).
Mostly I use Chrome (especially for sol). Also use on occasion FireFox (still on 6), Opera, and on very rare occasions IE9.

Yes, I made error there - it is 12Mb... 3 is version number... oops

But I cant think of an easier program to use - there is a very large button when you start the app that says 'Start Benchmark Tests'



All that info is still relevant Jack - NovaBench is just a convenient way to get hold of it, and provides simple numbers that allow comparison of both windows and mac machines.

Current Races:

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.

Stockholm to St Petersburg 2022
Are you ready to race this course of about 431nm across the Baltic and into the Gulf of Finland, from one great historic city Stockholm to another St Petersburg?
The Gulf of Finland is still ice‑free, so board your J‑122s and prepare. Take care and keep a weather eye. The odd stray submarine or ice‑breaker may need to be avoided.
