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: 3DMark2001SE, 3DMark03

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.

Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 15723
2. AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400 16364

3DMark2001SE at default resolution is pretty much all CPU limited. Still, we get a nice 600 point boost from the higher FSB.

This new accurate diagnostic tool, designed for DirectX9.0, provides you with all the information you need to make informed hardware assessments. Havok Total real-time physics library from Havok - these routines are used to accurately model the movements of objects due to forces, etc. FMOD sound library from Firelight Technologies - these are used for the various sound effects and routines used in the tests. Graphics adapter analysis software from Powerstrip of Entech Taiwan - this is used to correctly determine the speeds of the graphics processing and video memory chips, plus supply additional hardware information. Higher 3DMark03 scores denote better performance.

3DMark03 Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. AthlonXP 3000+ 166/333 4747
2. AthlonXP 3000+ 200/400 4804

3DMark03 on the other hand is all videocard limited (yes even with a Radeon 9700 Pro). Only overclocking the videocard will bring a substantial performance boost.
