Real World System Productivity

 

Sysmark 2002

 

Sysmark2002 incorporates the following Internet Content Creation and Office Productivity applications:

 

Office Productivity: Microsoft Word 2002, Microsoft Excel 2002, Microsoft PowerPoint 2002, Microsoft Outlook 2002, Microsoft Access 2002, Netscape Communicator 6.0, Dragon Naturally Speaking Preferred v.5, WinZip 8.0, and McAfee Virus Scan 5.13.

 

Internet Content Creation: Adobe Photoshop 6.01, Adobe Premiere 6.0, Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 7.1, Macromedia Dreamweaver 4, and Macromedia Flash 5.

 

 

 

In system production I875P benefits quite well with the increased memory performance and higher FSB.

 

Real World Multimedia

 

Lame MP3 Encoder

 

Lame MP3 Encoder is used to convert a 120MB WAV file into a 128bit 44Hz MP3 File, the lower the score the better.

 

 

Mainconcept MPEG Encoder 1.3.1

 

Mainconcept is used to convert a 1.2GB Digital Video to a MPEP-2 file using 25fps as the default rate. The Benchmark is expressed as time in seconds, of course less is better.

 

 

The increased memory of the I875 allows it to take a slight lead here.
