Benchmarks: Winstone 2004, Cinebench 2003

Winstone 2004 Source: Zdnet

Content Creation Winstone 2004 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications in Windows XP. Business Winstone 2004 runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete these activities to produce its performance scores. Higher numbers are better.

These benchmarks do not work on Windows XP 64, so the results have been omitted.

Winstone 2004 Benchmark Results
Business Winstone 2004: Points Ranking
Pentium 4 540 24.4
Athlon64 4000+ 32.2
Athlon64 X2 4800+ 31.8
Pentium D 840 24.8
Pentium D 840 (4.02GHz) 27.8
Content Creation 2004: Points Ranking
Pentium 4 540 29.6
Athlon64 4000+ 39.7
Athlon64 X2 4800+ 41.4
Pentium D 840 32.6
Pentium D 840 (4.02GHz) 38.3

The Intel Pentium D 840 derives very little advantage from dual-core operations in Winstone 2004, though it may have received a small boost to the Content Creation score. Without its dual core advantage, the Intel Pentium D 840 achieves scores equivalent to its 3.2GHz single-core sibling, the Intel Pentium 4 540.

Overclocking provides a small performance advantage, but the AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ again proves faster by 22-23%.

CINEBENCH 2003 Source: Cinebench

CINEBENCH 2003 is the free benchmarking tool for Windows and Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D RX. The tool is set to deliver accurate benchmarks by testing not only a computer's raw processing speed but also all other areas that affect system performance such as OpenGL, multi threading, and multiprocessors. Higher numbers are better.

OpenGL HW-L Points Ranking
Pentium 4 540 3319
Athlon64 3800+ 4043
Athlon64 4000+ 3837
Athlon64 X2 4800+ 4366
Athlon64 X2 4800+ 64-bit 4317
Pentium D 840 3547
Pentium D 840 (4.02GHz) 3938
Pentium D 840 64-bit 3538

Cinebench 2003 supports multiple processors, and in the 2-CPU section of this benchmark we see the Intel Pentium D 840 come into its own in rendering power. Oddly, it scores slightly less than the Pentium 4 540 in the other single-core benchmarks. Overclocking provides a good performance boost, especially in the shading benchmark.

The Intel Pentium D 840 still lags behind the AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+, providing scores that are again 15-20% lower in Cinebench 2003.
