Football Manager 16 Benchmark Thread

Recommended Posts

After previous threads by Yugo23 (Hope you don't mind the c/p of your template) I was interested to see how FM16 compares to 14 & 15, as with the 15 thread I've created a save with all 116 leagues from all 59 nations loaded. Total player count is 186.000. Detail level settings are their default values, except setting EPL to full detail.

In an added twist I've also created two start points, Benchmark - A starts on 20th August just like 14 & 15 however as this means that the busiest day of the year (deadline day) is missed I have also created Benchmark - B which will test performance when FM has to process a much larger amount of transfer & contract data.

How do you run this benchmark?

First, download benchmark save games from one of the following mirrors (I will add more as & when I get round to it):

Dropbox: Benchmark - A

Dropbox: Benchmark - B

Once loaded, ensure that auto save interval is disabled, and also set processing to Fast (Less Responsive), found at Preferences, More Match Settings.

Optionally, restart your computer and close any unnecessary programs before running this benchmark. From my experience this has very small effect on processing times, if at all. Also, there was no difference in processing speed with/without huge graphics folder.

After you load benchmark save game, just go on holiday for a week, and measure the time needed for processing.

If you're running on a laptop I suggest having it plugged in & set to High-Performance.

Post your results in the following format:

CPU: Intel Celeron G550

CPU Frequency: 2600 MHz

RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz CL9

OS: Win 7 64-bit

Storage: SSD

Test A

Time: 9 min 56 sec

Test B

Time: 11 min 12sec

Any preferences on the table format?

CPU: Intel i7-920 (D0)

CPU Frequency: 3995 MHz

RAM: 6GB DDR3 1537 MHz

Test A

Time: 3 min 49 sec

Test B

Storage: SSD

Test A

Time: 3 min 27 sec

Test B

Time: 5 min 59 sec

Excellent performance increases when comparing Test A to the FM15 results on my systems, on FM 15 my i7-920 came in at 5m32s & the 6820HK at 5m10s.

Edit: Decided to recreate the Test B criteria on FM15 & OMG the difference is like going from a Classic Beetle to modern 911 Turbo. (sorry Kriss, I'll see if I can give myself an infraction, even though it is an apt comparison)

i7-920: 16m 29sec

i7-6820HK: 16m 55sec

Edit: Wanted to see what the Skylake could do with the frequency locked at a value similar to my old Bloomfield

CPU Frequency: 4000 MHz (all cores)

Test A

Time: 2 min 54 sec

Test B

Time: 5 min 02 sec (really wanted to break 5 minutes :mad: )

I may push the overclock a little to see what I get but I got a little unlucky in the K chip lottery and it refuses to play ball without some scary voltage.

Quite happy with the results initally.

Will be very interesting to compare when more results come in.

That comparison to FM15 is quite surprising. I know FM16 is quicker but i had no idea that difference was that massive.

It's an almost unbelievable increase in performance. I suppose there's been some much needed optimisation going on for FM16.

Happy with that.

Indeed, although that might tip me over the edge in terms of finally replacing the 920. I've been tempted for a couple of years but couldn't really justify it but with Skylake-E close to release & with these performance gains for FM16 I am close to convincing myself.

Edit: I'm interested in seeing if anyone else tries the Test B criteria on FM15, if only to validate my results.

Finally glad to try the benchmark test where I wouldn't be embarrassed to post the results (got somewhere between 12 and 15 minutes last year on my old pc)

CPU: Intel® Core i7-6700K

CPU Frequency: 4.00GHz (overclocked to 4.7GHz)

RAM: 16GB Corsair 3000mhz Vengeance LPX DDR4 (2x8GB)

OS: Windows 10 64-bit

Storage: Samsung 500GB 850 Evo SSD with Seagate 2TB Secondary Hard Drive(Hybrid 8GB SSD)

I think I've got the layout right, but please say if I haven't or if I've forgotten to include anything.

Benchmark A - 2 min 25 sec

Benchmark B - 3 min 55 sec

Very happy with those results :D

Table added, hopefully we'll get a few AMD chips & maybe even the odd mac or Linux OS.

Nakamura, do you have FM installed on the SSD or the Hybrid drive?

It's good for the price but struggles a bit with newer titles which require more than 2 cores. Solid for FM though.

For anyone building a system with FM as their only gaming need, which is a lot of people I know (myself included), with that score in mind you could probably build a system for around £200 that would run FM pretty impressively. (Excluding maxed out graphics)

The only issue is that it's only dual core which as of yet only seems to have marginal deficiencies unless you use max details on leagues you aren't currently managing in.

Of course you can, getting as many different system as possible is the intention.

When you do post can you confirm the exact i7 model number in your MBP.

Would be interesting to get some scores from other low cost cpu's.

I might add a Test C at some point, same save file but after running for a few seasons to factor in additional stored data.

Both the i7-6820HK entries are the defiance laptop, the i7-920 is my ageing gaming tower.

Edit: Still hoping to see a few older systems being put through their paces, getting that sort of comparison might be more beneficial for those considering an upgrade.

Assuming that you're going for the i7 option I'd guess at half the time for both tests.

Still just about keeping up, but the Skylake is looking ever more tempting as you say Barside.

Also, impressive optimisation from the guys this year to shave almost two minutes off the processing from last year (5m58s).

The average is panning out at about 30% on last year for Test A, would good to see a few tried the Test B criteria on FM15.

Right thought i'd give this a go on my laptop too.

CPU: Intel i7 4710mq

CPU Frequency: 2500 MHz (3500MHz turbo)

RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600 MHz CL9

OS: Win 10 64-bit

Storage: SSD

1 - 3m 47s

2 - 6m 5s

I also did a slightly higher overclock from 4.1 to 4.2 on my desktop i5 previously posted.

1 - 2m 57s

2 -5m 4s

A few seconds shaved off test 1 but test 2 is interestingly exactly the same, hard to draw any conclusions without a bigger sample size though.

When comparing my results to last years FM 15 benchmarks, it seems like FM 16 utilizes cores/threads better than FM 15 :)

Time: 12 min 19 sec

Test B

Time: 23 min 48sec

By the way, trying to download Test B from Mediafire results in a nasty little file that isn't Test B at all - it's some sort of browser redirect to a so-called Mac Cleaning website. Downloading it to my regular Windows PC is fine however, and I simply transferred the game save to the MBP via my home network.

Strange about the Test B mediafire download, no idea how or why that would happen when downloading to your MBP & I'll delete the mediafire links to be on the safe side.

CPU: Intel i7-5820K

CPU Frequency: 4500 MHz OC

RAM: 16GB DDR4 2133 MHz CL13

OS: Win 10 64-bit

Storage: SSD

Test A

Time: 2 min 42 sec (average of 2 runs)

Test B

Time: 4 min 2 sec (average of 2 runs)

Test A with maximum detail on both international and club competitions

Time: 16 min 12 sec (one run)

When comparing my results to last years FM 15 benchmarks, it seems like FM 16 utilizes cores/threads better than FM 15 :)

Sad to see that you don't really benefit from the 2 extra physical cores.

Yeah, it could have been better.. Still it's a slight improvement towards the usage of more than four cores, the difference was bigger last year when comparing 6700K vs 5820K, I think both were at 4.5GHz then.

It would be interesting if you Makoto Nakamura could post some results from your 6700K at 4.5GHz just to be able to compare our processors at the same clock speed. The IPC of the 6700K is considerably higher so i'm thinking the 200MHz difference is quite a big factor.

Table updated, credit to herne79 for sticking around long enough to run Test B on the Core2Duo, I think many would have given up.

updated table to here.

Stonking performance from the i5 Skylake, losses a little on Test B but other than that it would be the way to go for those with a reasonable budget, can;t wait to see what Skylake-E chips can do when they get released.

Broadwell-E is going to release first with 10 cores.

I'm more curious to see how Zen will compete.

By then if you would want a truly stress test for these lines, the difference in cores/threads would show more if the number of competitions simed in full details would increase. How much that is practical (I personally don#t sim that much on full details) is another thing, but it's obvious the number isn't that highly. The OC'ed Pentium G (2 Cores / 2 Threads) is outperforming some Core i5s (4/4). That's Intel's desktop budget line, the level below the Core i3s (2 cores/4 threads). This wouldn't happen even in a typical AAA real-time graphics 3d video game, and those don't scale as much as FM's match sim does, not even at their most optimized, presumably because depending on the number of cores/threads available, the matches are simply calculated in parallel. The more threads available, the more matches can be calculated in parallel. The load is more like application software rather than your average 3d video game, but then as it's a measure of how long it takes to calculate something rather than about consistency of frame rates of images (all stuttering or fluid picture), that's rather logical. :-)

Increasing the number of leagues run on full detail is a true test however having seen hundreds or even thousands of user submitted saves while working at SI the percentage of people who increase the settings from default could be in the single digits.

I do run all comps other than domestic reserve & youth comps in full detail & the unmeasured performance difference over my earlier FM saves is impressive, I'll run the FM15/FM16 comparatives on my machines when I get home to get a value on the difference between the two versions.
