Benchmark 3.1 measures your Palm Powered handheld's speed and bus bandwidth utilization, and shows how your device measures up relative to other models -- and it does so quite accurately.
Benchmark 3.1 reports the speed of 68K apps as a blended timing of native code and PalmOS API calls. On a PalmOS 5 device with an ARM CPU, it measures the speed of apps running under the PACE emulation layer, combined with the speed of native ARM Palm OS calls. This provides an accurate benchmark for measuring the relative speed of 68K PalmOS apps on both original DragonBall 68K and new ARM PalmOS devices.
The barchart result for extremely fast devices is too large to fit on the Palm screen, and thus is truncated at the right hand edge.
