Synthetic PC and 3D Benchmarks

 

3DMark2001SE Build 330

 

 

With extra memory bandwidth on the SINXP it takes a comfortable lead over the 8INXP.

 

PCMark 2002

 

PCMark2002 is a completely new, multipurpose benchmark, suited for benchmarking all kinds of PCs, from laptops to workstations, as well as across multiple Windows operating systems. This easy-to-use benchmark makes professional strength benchmarking software available even to novice users. PCMark2002 consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs. PCMark2002 also covers many additional areas outside the scope of other MadOnion.com benchmarks.

 

 

CPU results are as expected, Memory scores for the SINXP are well above the 8INXP due to its increased DRAM speed.

 

Vulpine GLMark 1.1

 

Vulpine GLMark is a Windows based OpenGL API designed to stress the OpenGL systems of a 3D Accelerator. Patch 1.1 adds in support for ATI Radeon 9700's fast 256-bit memory interface optimizations and early support for the NVIDIA NV30 GPU

 

 

Vulpine is mode dependant on the video card rather than the mainboard. Results are slightly in the SINXP court but not by as big a margin as the other tests.
