Content Creation Winstone
2001 keeps multiple applications open at once and switches among those
applications. Content Creation Winstone 2001's activities focus on what we call
"hot spots," periods of activity that make your PC really work--the times where
you're likely to see an hourglass or a progress bar.
Business Winstone is a
system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall
performance when running today's Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98
ME, Windows NT 4.0 (SP6 or later), Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP which
runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time
a PC takes to complete those activities to produce its performance
Winstone 2001 benchmarks use older software that don't take advantage of SSE2,
the Celeron can keep up with the lower clocked Pentium 4.
SPECviewperf™ is a portable OpenGL performance
benchmark program written in C. It was developed by IBM. Later updates and
significant contributions were made by SGI, Digital and other
SPECopcSM project group members. SPECviewperf provides a vast amount
of flexibility in benchmarking OpenGL performance. Currently, the program runs
on most implementations of UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 95/98 and Linux. Higher
numbers equate to better performance.
SPECviewperf paints a different picture here. only in the
DRV_07 test does the Celeron lose to the P4. The rest seem to like the extra CPU
