AMD Athlon64 4000+ Socket 939 Processor Review

AMD Athlon64 4000+ Socket 939 Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Athlon 64 4000+ is not clocked faster than its nearest predecessor, but that doesn't preclude it from obtaining a healthy boost in the benchmarks thanks to 1MB L2 Cache.

Benchmarks: Hexus piFast, POVray

Hexus piFast Source: Hexus

Pifast is a small program that computes Pi to a set amount of decimal places and also display's how long it takes. Since it tells you how long it takes this then gives us a basis for charting the results giving a performance indicator for new and old technology at a glace.

Hexus piFast Benchmark Results (Lower is better)
CPU Seconds Ranking
Pentium 4 540 (3.2 GHz) 64
Athlon64 3800+ 50.5
Athlon64 4000+ (NF3) 50.69
Athlon64 4000+ (VIA) 47.56
Athlon64 4000+ @ 2.72 GHz (VIA) 45.33

More number crunching! In these results it is apparent that the Nvidia Nforce 3/Athlon 64 4000+ combination is lagging a little bit over the VIA chipset. The Athlon 64 3800+ actually posted a sliver of a better score. Once again, the socket 775 Intel Pentium 4 540 is left in last place.

POVray Source: POVray

The Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer (POV-Ray) is an all round excellent package, but there are two things that particularly make it stand out above the rest of the crowd. Firstly, it's free, and secondly, the source is distributed so you can compile it on virtually any platform.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

POVray Benchmark Results(Lower is better)
Pawns 10x7AA: Seconds Ranking
Pentium 4 540 (3.2 GHz) 205
Athlon64 3800+ 120
Athlon64 4000+ (NF3) 120
Athlon64 4000+ (VIA) 121
Athlon64 4000+ @ 2.72 GHz (VIA) 106

Again, nothing new to report here except the dominance of the Athlon 64 over the Intel processor in this little shootout. The overclocked Athlon64 4000+ CPU opens up a decent margin on the competition, while the stock Athlon64 4000+ processors on either chipset platform do nothing to distinguish themselves from the older Athlon64 3800+ benchmark figures. The extra 512K of cache (for a total of 1MB) does not seem to be making a big difference so far.
