SiSoft Sandra 2004


SiSoft Sandra (System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) 2004 is a synthetic Windows benchmark that features different tests used to evaluate different PC subsystems.



You can see how overclocking helps increase overall memory speed.



Getting rid of the optimization that comes with buffered scores, we still see the Kingmax memory score very well across the board.


PCMark 2002


PCMark2002 is a 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 benchmarks.



As you would expect as the Front Side Bus (FSB) of the processor increases, so does the score. We see a nice increase across the board as we increase speed.



At DDR-500 we have well and truly broken the 10k barrier which is always a nice accomplishment.
