CompilAIBB is a collection of small files, called modules,
created with the AIBB software from Peter Lamonte Koop.
AIBB (Amiga Intuition Based Benchmarks) enables you to :
1- Check the hardware and software setup of your Amiga :
+ processor kind : 68000, 68020, 68030, ...
+ its frequency : 14 MHz, 33 MHz, ...
+ possible presence of mathematics coprocessor
+ specialized chipset identification : Agnus, Alice, ...
+ possible presence of expansion boards
+ Kickstart version, i.e. system version : 37.175, 40.63, ...
+ system main libraries versions : exec.library,
+ Kickstart locations : ROM or RAM
2- Evaluate the computing performance of your Amiga and
compare it to others :
+ AIBB includes 20 different tests (integer, graphics,
floating point, memory access, ...)
+ AIBB achieves comparisons by storing and retrieving the
results of these tests in a very small file : a module.
This is the 1.0 version of CompilAIBB, constituted of modules
made with 6.0 or newer versions of AIBB. It features lots of
68030 accelerator boards for the A1200 and the A2000, 68040
accelerators boards for the A2000 and the A4000 and a 68060
prototype board for the A4000. Some boards are represented twice
or more with small differences such as the Kickstart version,
Kickstart location, cache status, etc.
A big AmigaGuide document is provided with an inventory of
these modules and instructions to provide the author with new
The AIBB modules require the 6.0 or newer version of AIBB.
The AmigaGuide documentation require either the Amigaguide
software included in the 3.0 (V39) or 3.1 (V40) Amiga system
or the standalone Amigaguide V34 package.
Maximum efficiency can be obtained from the documentation if your
humour board is plugged in...
