Hi Mingfeng,

  I added your Chimera benchmark scores to our web page.


The updated page won't appear on the web site until tomorrow.

  The benchmarks just measure the graphics card (surface, mesh, solid tests),
the bandwidth to the card (recolor), and the CPU speed (contour).  The time
to save a PNG image might be limited by disk speed.  Or if it is taking
a long time for all the tiled images to flash by that is controlled by a
particular graphics card feature -- drawing directly to the front buffer --
that none of the benchmarks measure (they all use "double buffering").
