2Xmark serves to gauge the performance of your '2x system by measuring its arithmetic speeds and will show you an accurate reading of speed at Fixed-point arithmetic (Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division-- the basics), and the same using Floating Point math.
There are more multimedia tests to come in the next release, but I have also included an OGG Vorbis decoding performance benchmark. Expect the next build (or one after that) to have SD card read/write speed tests, RAM speed tests, more complex math tests and some software sprite manipulation, scaling and rotation performance tests.
This is, of course, the first public release so there may be bugs, please let me know about them. Expect Division to report as much slower than the other operations since it's not natively supported on the ARM9 processor series. (and yes, I know addition and subtraction are essentially the same thing from an actual arithmetic standpoint, I'm just being thorough. There aren't THAT many tests thus far.)
Probably the most fun things to do with this program aside from find out your performance level at various overclocked speeds is to show it off. You'll note I've added my highest achieved record to my signature below. You can also use it as a stability testing tool (the next release should include a Torture-Test feature to see if your shiny new clockrate is stable.)
You can get the first release here:

Enjoy and please let me know what you think!
EDIT: Fixed a bug that kept the program from working on some people's systems. Sorry 'bout that.
