Canada Computers Content Creator X2 Workstation System Review

Canada Computers Content Creator X2 Workstation System Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Built around a e 2.4GHz dual core Athlon64 X2 4800+ CPU, and pre-installed with Microsoft WindowsXP Professional, the system should have plenty of potential pixel kicking power.

Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra 2005, PCMark04, PCMark05

SiSoft Sandra 2005 Source: Sandra

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.

SiSoft Sandra numbers from the dual core Canada Computers Content Creator X2 system is very impressive indeed. The processor numbers are double what we usually see from the Athlon64 4000+ which is already a very powerful processor. Memory bandwidth is a bit lower than we expected however, most regular Athlon64/NF4 setups are around 6000MB/s. The HDD File system benchmark is also quite impressive, a 10,000 RPM WD Raptor scores around 55-60MB, here the two WD 250GB Serial ATA II HDDs get around 90MB/s!

PCMark04 Source: FutureMark

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
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 6615
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 6600
CPU Points Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 6618
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 6667
Memory Points Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 4674
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 4668

PCMark04 does not care whether WindowsXP 32-bit or WindowsXP Professional x64 Edition is used as the scores are within the margin of error on both platforms. Still, the numbers are pretty good and the CPU score is about 50% higher than we'd see on a regular Athlon64 4000+ processor. Memory bandwidth is still on the low side however.

PCMark05 Source: FutureMark

PCMark05 is a premium tool for measuring both normal home use and simple 3D performance of the latest PC hardware. There are 11 system tests - each one is designed to represent a certain type of PC usage. By running these tests, PCMark05 stresses the components in a similar manner as they are stressed in normal home usage.

PCMark05:
Overall Points Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 3853
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 2167
CPU Points Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 4842
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 4834
Memory Points Ranking
CC Content Creator X2 32 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 3943
CC Content Creator X2 64 Bit OS/32 Bit Software 3781

PCMark05 numbers are pretty good especially when compared to systems on FutureMark's Online Result Browser. It seems however the benchmark has a problem running in a 64 bit environment, something I'm sure FutureMark is aware of.
