Benchmarks: WinBench99, Sandra 2002

Winbench 99 V1.2 Source: e-Testinglabs.com

WinBench 99 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a PC's graphics, disk, and video subsystems in a Windows environment. WinBench 99's tests can run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows Me systems.

WinBench 99 v1.2 Benchmark Results
MSI 845PE Max2 Score Ranking
1. Business Disk - 133 MHz 6240
1a. Business Disk - 165 MHz 6570
2. High-End Disk - 133 MHz 17500
2a. High-End Disk - 165 MHz 18000
3. Business Graphics - 133 MHz 918
3a. Business Graphics - 165 MHz 1090
4. High-End Graphics - 133 MHz 1930
4a. High-End Graphics - 165 MHz 2330

Unfortunately since the test HDD is a 5400RPM Samsung drive, our disk benchmarks are a bit low (the drive is really quite though). We see that the graphics portion of the benchmark really benefits from overclocking!

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.

MSI 845PE Max2 Score

Multimedia Benchmark (FSB)

1. Integer SSE - 133 MHz 10710 it/s
1a. Integer SSE - 165 MHz 13197 it/s
2. Floating-Point SSE - 133 MHz 13285 it/s
2a. Floating-Point SSE - 165 MHz 16372 it/s

CPU Benchmark (FSB)

3. Dhrystone ALU - 133 MHz 5153 MIPS
3a. Dhrystone ALU - 165 MHz 6511 MIPS
4. Whetstone FPU - 133 MHz 1446 FPU/3342 SSE2 MFLOPS
4a. Whetstone FPU - 165 MHz 1779 FPU/4120 SSE2 MFLOPS

Memory Benchmark (FSB)

5. Integer ALU - 133 MHz 2714 MB/s
5a. Integer ALU - 165 MHz 2716 MB/s
6. Float FPU - 133 MHz 2509 MB/s
6a. Float FPU - 165 MHz 2509 MB/s

Using Sandra we see that setting the memory frequency to DDR333 actually sets the memory to run at DDR354! That's why the bandwidth at stock speeds is so high.
