AMDs Move To a 400MHz Bus Speed

AMDs Move To a 400MHz Bus Speed - PCSTATS
Abstract: While AMD just recently increased bus speeds 333MHz, there has been a lot of talk lately about the AthlonXP moving to a 400MHz bus speed as early as the third quarter of 2003.

Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra 2003 Pro, PCMark2002

Sisoft Sandra 2002 Pro Source: Sandra

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.

Multimedia Benchmark

1a. Integer SSE - AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 12077 it/s
1b. Integer SSE - AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400 12159 it/s
2a. Floating-Point SSE - AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 12837 it/s

Floating-Point SSE - AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400

12973 it/s

CPU Benchmark

3a. Dhrystone ALU - AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 7707 MIPS
3b. Dhrystone ALU - AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400 7838 MIPS
4a. Whetstone FPU - AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 3255 MFLOPS
4b. Whetstone FPU - AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400 3291 MFLOPS

Memory Benchmark

5a. Integer ALU - AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 2606 MB/s
5b. Integer ALU - AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400 3079 MB/s
6a. Float FPU - AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 2484 MB/s
6b Float FPU - AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400 2897 MB/s

It's no surprise that in the multimedia and CPU benchmarks show approximately the same numbers since both processors are running within 30 MHz of each other. Memory bandwidth goes up quite a bit about 300 MB/s for both the ALU and FPU at 200 MHz FSB.

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.

Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 6666
2. AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400 6845



1. AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 5902
2. AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400 6433

PCMark2002's CPU benchmark says similar things as Sandra's tests. The AthlonXP 3000+ running at a 200 MHz FSB (400MHz bus) performs slightly better thanks to its 30 MHz CPU speed advantage. Also like Sandra, it's the memory portion of the benchmark that benefits most from the increased FSB.
