Benchmarks: Winbench99, SiSoft Sandra 2004

Winbench 99 V1.2 Source: e-Testinglabs.com

WinBench 99 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a PC's graphics, disk, and video subsystems in a Windows environment. WinBench 99's tests can run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows Me systems.

1b. Business Disk - 219/438


2a. High-End Disk - 200/400 35900


High-End Disk - 219/438 37100

4a. High-End Graphics - 200/400 2160
4b. High-End Graphics - 219/438 2290

Surprisingly we see HDD performance goes up when the system is overclocked! It looks like nVIDIA did their homework as the HDD performance of the nForce3 150 is very good!

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.
