Benchmarks: Super Pi, POVray

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. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz 56
2. AthlonXP 3000+ (KT400) 55
3. AthlonXP 3000+ (nForce2) 49
4. AthlonXP 3000+ oc'ed (nForce2) 43

Hmm, I'm not really sure why the AthlonXP 3000+ performs so poorly on the KT400 chipset. At stock and on the nForce2, it performs like we would expect - blisteringly fast! With results like this, we may have to increase the value SuperPI uses to 2Million or even 4Million digits.

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. Pentium 4 2.8 GHz 197
2. AthlonXP 3000+ (KT400) 148
3. AthlonXP 3000+ (nForce2) 146
4. AthlonXP 3000+ oc'ed (nForce2) 127

POVRay is another FPU intensive benchmark and we see again that the AthlonXP 3000+ has no rivals when it comes to pure FPU power!
