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.
PCMark has always loved SSE2 in the Pentium 4 and
I'm a bit puzzled at why the Athlon64 3200+/K8T Neo processor bench is so low. Despite
running single channel, the Athlon64 3200+ does very well in the memory portion
of PCMark. Looks like there are benefits to having the memory controller
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.

Athlon64 3200+/K8T Neo is able to break the 20k
barrier with the system completely stock! That's amazing, no
wonder my friend QD was able to break 26k with his Athlon64!
