I am writing a paper about how a matlab toolbox can be used in teaching at universities and schools. It uses real-time sound feedback and the audio-toolbox. In order to find out which models can run, I need some guess about rough computer speed, as all of the calculations are time critical to allow for a real-time audio (and visual) experience that is required.
I can measure matlab speed on the usual workstations at with the Bench command (the one I am sitting around 70), and that is extremely useful for me to write which computer roughly other universities (or schools) would need to buy to achieve this performance. However, most places have presumably somewhat older computers and less funds, so it would be great to be able to get OLD matlab benchmark measures. Is there any way to access (maybe someone has them?) or measure OLD machines systematically as function of time. I would be interested in ‘the average PC available to students in 2000/2005/2015) had these benchmark results. It doesn’t have to be precise, this is not a precise art, but any date would be useful to assess if the growth is linear or flattening.
I did an internet search, but apparently no-one is collecting such information.
