Benchmarks: PCMark 2002, 3DMark2001SE

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.

5. A64 3200+/Gigabyte K8NNXP (227/377) 9012

In PCMark the Gigabyte K8NNXP performs as we'd expect. Memory bandwidth when overclocked is not the greatest but then again the memory is running slower than the FSB.

3DMark2001 SE Source: FutureMark

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. A64 3200+/MSI K8T Neo (200/400) 20322
2. A64 3200+/Albatron K8X800 (200/400) 20072
3. A64 3200+/Epox 8HDA3+ (200/400) 19336
4. A64 3200+/Gigabyte K8NNXP (200/400) 19442
5. A64 3200+/Gigabyte K8NNXP (227/377) 20087

I'm a bit disappointed to see the Gigabyte K8NNXP score so low in 3DMark2001 at stock speeds. It's just a hundred points higher than the Epox 8HDA3+, despite running tighter timings.
