Benchmarking or Diagnostic software

Other than sysinfo that is debatable in terms of accuracy what benchmarking or diagnostic software would you recommend?

In particular I'm looking for something to test the fast memory on my TF330 as I want to be sure my overclock is stable but I'd also be keen to try other generic benchmarking / diagnostic tools to check all functionality and speed!

Also out of interest are there any 3D benchmarks for the Amiga, something that would give a FPS score? Considering that my accelerators are really only pushed when playing such games I think it would be nice to have something that could give a baseline for comparing system performance (other than MIPS in sysinfo). I think it would be cool to have something like the frontier intro as a benchmark test but for it to give you an average FPS at the end of it.

AmigaTestKit has a memory test that you can run for hours and hours if you like to give the memory a thorough test.

Thanks Daedalus, that'll give me something to do later. Is this the test you see GadgetUK running in his videos?

I haven't checked them out, but probably. It has a maroon background with dark blue borders top and bottom of the screen. It's such a handy tool, available as an ADF you can stick on a disk and then stick in any machine to test it.

Yeah I've got the ADF now. Sticking that in my CD32 might prove difficult though I assume I can just drop the contents onto the CF card and run it from within workbench.

Well, the ADF uses a custom bootloader, so you can't access the contents directly. But there is a separate executable that you should find in the same archive that you can put anywhere and run from Workbench. Just bear in mind that it totally takes over the system and can't be exited, so you'll need to reboot when you're finished with it.

So the test failed the second it hit the fast ram causing the Amiga to hang and I initially thought my overclock wasn't so stable but if I change the CPU out back to the EC chip its working fine.

Its either a compatibility issue between the full 030 with MMU and the software or perhaps the TF330 itself.
