For this page it was always what is now included as #tinyBenchmarks - runnable from the 'About Squeak’ window. It’s not a very meaningful benchmark to be honest, but then very few are.

On the Pi3 with a CogSpur VM we get 280M bc/sec and 16M sends/sec. It’s quite sobering to look back at the ~10 year old results for then-new expensive machine and see them well beaten by a $35 ‘toy’.
