Here is what I get for this 102 page score:

jacquesmenu@macmini > time lilypond
GNU LilyPond 2.22.1
;;; note: auto-compilation is enabled, set GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE=0
;;;       or pass the --no-auto-compile argument to disable.

I need to buy a new PC, more powerful than the one I own. The CPU and RAM must be chosen on the time required to produce LilyPond output. Are there any test sheets with different CPUs and the time they take to output a score that takes a long time to compile? In case this doesn't exist specifically for LilyPond, is there anything equivalent I can use?

There are general benchmarks, like those below, maybe the single core ones can be useful.
