Well, the results are pretty impressive:
- V8 shell: 2127!
Even if the code was optimised around these benchmarks, it’s very likely that it would still blow away the JSC engine under most conditions.
WebKit r36083: 597
Also, given that most other benchmarks show less of a performance gap on “real-world” functionality (and on the Dromaeo benchmark JSCore comes out on top), these results are not idicative of the level of performance users should expect in a browser context.
These tests were run on a quad-core 2.6GHz Mac Pro with 3GB RAM. Each test was run 4 times
