Benchmarks: PCMark2002, 3DMark2001SE

PCMark 2002 Source: MadOnion

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. This benchmark was released March 12, 2002 and can be downloaded from Madonion if you would like to give it a test run on your computer for comparisons sake...

PCMark2002 Benchmark Results
Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. 8RDA+ - 166/333 6682
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 6552
3. AU13 - 166/333 6668
4. AU13 - 173/346 6765

Memory

1. 8RDA+ - 166/333 5236
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 5116
3. AU13 - 166/333 5903
4. AU13 - 173/346 6162

Hmm, I'm not sure why the AU13 scores so high in the memory portion of PCMark. I reran the test a few times when I saw these results and I got the same thing.

3DMark2001 SE Source: MadOnion

3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in the 3DMark series by MadOnion. 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.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. 8RDA+ - 166/333 15073
2. KX400-8XV Pro - 166/333 14668
3. AU13 - 166/333 15843
4. AU13 - 173/346 16164

The AU13 does very well in 3DMark2001SE as well. I think I may retest the 8RDA+ after to see if I get similar results as the AU13.
