Pentium 4 goes 533Mhz FSB @ 2.4GHz - Benchmarks - Test System and Sandra

Everyone knew it was happening, and some even knew when. Intel made the leap to a quad-pumped Pentium4 processor with a base FSB of 133MHz. Will this boost make it any more competitive in the current processor wars? Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he puts this question to the test by checking out the brand new 2.4GHz Penitum4 running it's 533MHz quad-pumped in all its glory. It's time to see if we can separate the men from the boys!

Synthetic System Benchmarks - Sandra 2002

 

SiSoft Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) 2002 is a synthetic windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.

 

 

 

 

Results Explained

 

Here, it is simple; tests of the CPU performance under synthetic conditions. These tests aren't really considered "Real-Life" as they offer only raw data of the CPU's core performances (FPU, ALU engines). Memory Benchmarks show that the increase in the FSB of the Pentium 4 to 533MHz does help quite a bit in synthetic tests. Will it hold up in real-world? Let's see.
