The following results show the time it took to complete the SunSpider tests +/- the 95% confidence interval.
Chromium (Build 33067): 1068.8ms +/- 17.8% [SunSpider Results]
Firefox 3.7a1pre Nightly: 1853.8ms +/- 15.3% [SunSpider Results]
Firefox 3.6b5pre Nightly: 5239.2ms +/- 2.8% [SunSpider Results]
Firefox 3.5.6pre Nightly: 5420.2ms +/- 15.7% [SunSpider Results]
Using SunSpider’s nifty comparision feature (and you can try it yourself with the links provided), I found that Chromium’s V8 engine was significantly faster than all of the TraceMonkey engines in all tests, except for the engine included in 3.7a1pre, where a few tests (mostly math related ones) were inconclusive.
Just for the heck of it, here’s a nice graph I made with Google Docs (click on it to see a bigger version):
It looks as if the speed gap between V8 and TraceMonkey is slowly closing. Of course, I expect nothing less from the open source community.
UPDATE: Mariano posted a comment asking about the computer specs and operating system, so here they are:
- AMD Athlon X2 5200+ (~2.7GHz)
- 6GB DDR2 800 RAM
