Benchmarks: PCMark 2002, 3DMark 2001SE

PCMark 2002 Source: MadOnion

PCMark is a new benchmark from our pals at MadOnion which a whole system benchmark. It 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. This benchmark was released March 12, 2002 and can be downloaded from Madonion if you would like to give it a test run on your computer for comparisons sake...

PCMark2002 Benchmark Results
Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 5066
2. KT4 Ultra 185/370 MHz 5159

Memory

3. KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 3498
4. KT4 Ultra 185/370 MHz 4065

Like in Sandra, because the CPU speeds are about the same, the scores here remain pretty much flat. In the memory portion of the benchmark we see the benefits of a synchronous bus speed.

3DMark2001 SE Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Motherboard (FSB/Memory) 3DMarks Ranking
1. KT4 Ultra 133/400 MHz 11087
2. KT4 Ultra 185/370 MHz 11812

3DMark has always loved high FSB systems and here we see that the KT4 Ultra gains about 700 points! Not too bad!
