Sisoft Sandra 2002 Pro
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.

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
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.
