Perhaps you’ve seen us talk about benchmarks in our product reviews. We’ll typically use them to gauge the relative performance of various devices, but discussing a Linpack score doesn’t mean much without going deeper into what it actually means. What aspects of performance do these benchmarks measure, and what techniques do they use? How much can we rely on them when making purchasing decisions? Read on after the break for the full scoop.
