The Solar Bay Benchmark produces four scores: an overall score and three sub scores showing the average FPS of each benchmark section. The better a score, the higher the system’s performance. Scores are comparable across platforms.
3DMark Solar Bay Score
Solar Bay score = S_Graphics*263 Where: S_Graphics = F_Frames / T_Timeline F_Frames = The number of rendered frames ignoring frames from the first and last second in the timeline T_Timeline = The runtime in seconds minus two seconds for the first and last seconds, which are ignored
3DMark Solar Bay Stage scores
Solar Bay Section Score = Average frame rate for section Section timings: Section one: 1s - 8.67s Section two: 19.67s – 41s Section three: 41.33s – 58s
3DMark Solar Bay stress test scores
The result for the Solar Bay stress test is the scores and data from the twenty Solar Bay benchmark runs, showing how device performance changed during the stress test.
A score is calculated for each loop separately using the same scoring formula as the Solar Bay Benchmark. These scores are represented as both a line chart and as individual scores for each loop.
