AMD Duron 1 GHz Processor Review

AMD Duron 1 GHz Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The 1.0GHz Duron processor we have in the labs for review is based on a AHLCA K stepping and was made some time in Week 2 of 2002.

Sandra, PovRay and SuperPi Benchmarks

Sisoft Sandra 2002 Pro Source: Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance. Higher numbers represent better performance.

SiSoft Sandra 2001 Benchmark Results

Multimedia Benchmark

Score

1a. Integer SSE - 1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz 7247 it/s
1b. Integer SSE - 1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz 7745 it/s
2. Floating-Point SSE - 1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz 8530 it/s

3b. Dhrystone ALU - 1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz 3945 MIPs
4a. Whetstone FPU - 1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz 1850 MFLOPS
4b. Whetstone FPU - 1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz 2037 MFLOPS

Memory Benchmark

5a. Integer ALU - 1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz 2013 MB/s
5b. Integer ALU - 1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz 2151 MB/s
6a. Float FPU - 1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz 1906 MB/s
6b. Float FPU - 1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz 2037 MB/s

No set of benchmarks would be complete without some Sandra scores would it? The Duron performs about what we would expect from it, please keep in mind that for the memory tests the FSB is running at 144 MHz.

POVRay Source: POVRay.org

The Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer (POV-Ray) is an all round excellent package, but there are two things that particularly make it stand out above the rest of the crowd. Firstly, it's free, and secondly, the source is distributed so you can compile it on virtually any platform.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

POVRay Benchmark Results (lower is better)
Processor seconds Ranking
1. 1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz 237 sec
2. 1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz 222 sec

It seems here that the L2 cache helps a bit since the numbers that the Duron gets are quite a bit higher then our AthlonXP 2100+ .

SuperPI Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The benchmark is fairly diverse and allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 Thousand to 32 Million. The benchmark, which uses 19 iterations in the test, is set 1 Million digits.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

Super PI (1 Million digits) Benchmark Results (Lower is better)
Processor seconds Ranking
1. 1 GHz Duron 10x100 MHz 88 sec
2. 1.44 GHz Duron 10x144 MHz 73 sec

Super Pi is a pure FPU benchmark and as we can see the Duron does very well here. With a powerful FPU, the Duron even at stock speeds calculates faster then a Pentium 4 2 GHz
