Daily Single Board Computer Giggle Score Results

How GiggleScore.com Works

Giggle Score (Ģv2)

Comparing SBC Value

It can be difficult to gauge the value of Single Board Computers when compared to one another. Prices vary, specifications vary, and a lot of the information you'll find is either performance-based or personal opinion. GiggleScore.com sets out to provide an accurate means of gauging the value of each Single Board Computer by weighing the performance of each board against its USD value. Using each board's Giggle Score, we can truly find the "best bang for the buck" when it comes to SBCs.

A lower Ģ score means less cost (better value) for the performance of the Single Board Computer.

7-Zip LZMA CPU Benchmarks (LZMA)

Comparing SBC Performance

From device to device, it can be challenging (perhaps impossible?) to accurately compare performance. Each use case introduces new variables. But by running a standardized test across all its supported platforms on several hundred single board computers, NEMS Linux provides a single unified "score" – a MIPS average total using 7-Zip's built-in LZMA CPU benchmark (compression) which gives us a crucial piece of performance data to cross-compare many different Single Board Computers.

A higher LZMA score means better performance.

Interpretting These Scores

NOTE: GiggleScore.com was upgraded to v2 on May 4, 2019. This increases the accuracy of the scores, but also means resetting all data since the algorithm has been re-written. All v1 Giggle results are now obsolete. It will take a few weeks to get all our servers to check-in with the new algorithm.

Take GiggleScore.com with a heaping tablespoon of salt. At this early stage of development, the benchmarks are still evolving to improve accuracy, and really it should only be viewed as a fun project with some interesting potential. At present, it only tests the first and last core of each board's SOC, and does not yet take multithreading or 64-bit architecture into account. Of course, high-end boards will shine with the inclusion of these tests, so for now, consider GiggleScore.com a work in progress.
