Sisoft Sandra 2003 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.

5. Integer ALU - 2x 512MB Corsair TwinX 4000 (258/516 MHz) 5676 MB/s

AMD/FPU

1. Float FPU - 2x 512MB Corsair TwinX 4000 (200/400 MHz) 2741 MB/s
2. Float FPU - 2x 512MB Corsair TwinX 4000 (223/446 MHz) 3198 MB/s

Intel/ALU

4. Integer ALU - 2x 512MB Corsair TwinX 4000 (200/400 MHz) 5606 MB/s
5. Integer ALU - 2x 512MB Corsair TwinX 4000 (258/516 MHz) 5650 MB/s

In SiSoft Sandra we see that bandwidth increases nicely when both Intel and AMD systems are overclocked.

PCMark 2002 Source: FutureMark

PCMark 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.

Ranking

1 2x 512MB Corsair TwinX 4000 (200/400 MHz) 6338
2. 2x 512MB Corsair TwinX 4000 (223/446 MHz) 7015

Intel Memory (FSB/Memory)

2. 2x 512MB Corsair TwinX 4000 (258/516 MHz) 10375

It seems like the AMD system benefits more from the increased bandwidth than the Pentium 4. Let's see how this translate into real world numbers.
