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.

5. Integer ALU - 2x 256MB Buffalo PC4200 (263/526 MHz) 6012 MB/s

AMD/FPU

1. Float FPU - 2x 256MB Buffalo PC4200 (200/400 MHz) 2817 MB/s
2. Float FPU - 2x 256MB Buffalo PC4200 (227/454 MHz) 3198 MB/s

Intel/FPU

4. Integer ALU - 2x 256MB Buffalo PC4200 (200/400 MHz) 4866 MB/s
5. Integer ALU - 2x 256MB Buffalo PC4200 (263/526 MHz) 6010 MB/s

With SiSoft Sandra we see a nice bandwidth boost due to overclocking. We're just able to break 6k MB/s with the Intel system at 263 MHz FSB.

PCMark 2002 Source: FutureMark

PCMark can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday computing from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop batteries.
