“Octane breaks with this tradition and extends the former V8 Benchmark Suite with five new benchmarks created from full, unaltered, well-known web applications and libraries.”
With Octane, the various tests run and produce numeric scores on everything from regular expressions to 3D emulation to code redundancies and compilation to fast object creation. Octane measures the time a test takes to complete and then assigns a score that is inversely proportional to the run time.
“A high score in the new benchmarks directly translates to better and smoother performance in similar web applications,” Cazzulani continues.
