AMD Athlon64 3500+ Overclocking Adventure

AMD Athlon64 3500+ Overclocking Adventure - PCSTATS
Abstract: I've been asked countless times why I bother to overclock such fast systems and the reason is that I can.

Benchmarks: PCMark04, 3DMark2001, ScienceMark 2.0

ScienceMark 2.0 Source: ScienceMark

Mol Dyn: Molecular Dynamics is a method for simulating the thermodynamic behaviour of materials using their forces, velocities, and positions.

Primordia: This code calculates the Quantum Mechanical Hartree-Fock Orbitals for each electron in any element of the periodic table.

In both tests, lower scores are better.

ScienceMark 2.0
Mol Dyn seconds Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) stock 74.78
Athlon64 3500+ 2.66 GHz (242/484) aircooled 61.62
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) prometeia 56.8
Primordia Points Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) stock 369.06
Athlon64 3500+ 2.66 GHz (242/484) aircooled 305.25
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) prometeia 268.29

Both tests show drastic improvement due to overclocking.

PCMark04 Source: FutureMark

PCMark04 is the latest version of the popular PCMark series. PCMark04 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results.

PCMark04:
Overall Points Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) stock 4628
Athlon64 3500+ 2.66 GHz (242/484) aircooled 5468
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) Prometia 6099
CPU Points Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) stock 4223
Athlon64 3500+ 2.66 GHz (242/484) aircooled 5089
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) Prometia 5733
Memory Points Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) stock 5409
Athlon64 3500+ 2.66 GHz (242/484) aircooled 6509
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) Prometia 6695

We see a nice boost in the overall and processor portions of PCMark04, but the memory score only increases a little bit due to the lower memory operating frequency and slower HyperTransport settings of our Prometia cooled 3.05GHz test subject.

3DMark2001 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.

3DMark2001SE:
Processor Points Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) stock 25039
Athlon64 3500+ 2.66 GHz (242/484) aircooled 28569
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) Prometia 30648

Very nice; the AMD Athlon64 3500+ @ 3.05 GHz is able to crack the 30k barrier in 3DMark2001SE with the videocard at stock speeds!
