Cool, I saw NBench show up in my twitter feed, but didn't have time to look at it. That's really funny that NBench actually uses BenchmarkDotNet to test itself! (although I do wonder why he wrote a new library and didn't just use BenchmarkDotNet itself, maybe we weren't extensible enough? It wouldn't be that hard to add the NBench functionality to BenchmarkDotNet, now that we have the new plugin system)

Just found this comment from the author of NBench, it pretty much answers my previous question
Basicially this:
PerfDotNet only does throughput and micro-benchmarking, which is super helpful unto itself and it excels at doing that. But I needed to be able to also make assertions against Memory consumption and GC, so it didn't cover the spectrum of needs there. Plus I wanted unit test-style pass/fail semantics, which it also does not do.
