Happy New Year of the Rooster 🐔.

As promised in the last post, here are the benchmark results from Mathematica 11.

Just a reminder, these are for my ‘new’ SP4. Just like MATLAB benchmarks, these also imply this machine is ‘fast’. In fact, let me give you some explicit numbers to back that up. In my ‘old’ SP3, for integrals that took anywhere between 80–125 seconds, SP4 spits out an answer much faster between 55 – 65 seconds! I mean even the integral that took the longest at ~2 minutes gets done in a minute… what the hell? How am I supposed to think linearly about that?
