Benchmarks: piFast, POVray

Hexus piFast Source: Hexus

Pifast is a small program that computes Pi to a set amount of decimal places and displays how long it takes. This gives us a basis for charting the results, giving a performance indicator for new and old technology at a glance.

Hexus piFast Benchmark Results (Lower is better)
CPU Seconds Ranking
Pentium 4 3.0C 63.92
Pentium 4 540 (3.2 GHz) 64
AthlonXP 3200+ 71.48
Athlon64 3200+ 60.72
Athlon64 3800+ 50.5

The Athlon 64 3800+ chip uses its extra processing power to pull away considerably from its 64-bit sibling and Intel's offerings. This is a good illustration of the overall performance advantage that the newest AMD chip has right now.

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.

Pawns 10x7AA: Seconds Ranking
Pentium 4 3.0C (i875P 200/400) 145
Pentium 4 540 (915P 200/400) 198
Pentium 4 540 (925X 200/533) 198
AthlonXP 3200+ (NF2 Ultra 200/400) 143
Athlon64 3200+ (NF3-250 200/400) 179
Athlon64 3800+ (K8T800 Pro 200/400) 120
Athlon64 3800+ (NF3 Ultra 200/400) 125
Athlon64 3800+ @ 2.57 GHz 113

POVray is similar to Super Pi as it measures FPU power mainly. FSB and bandwidth do not affect scores as much. Here we see that the Athlon64 3800+ is much more powerful than its competitors again.
