SFF PC Benchmarks: Office Productivity, SiSoft Sandra, Super Pi

Office Productivity Source: Zdnet

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.

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.

The MSI Mega mPC 945 SFF PC does fairly well in the Office Productivity tests as well, although Business Winstone 2004 numbers are a hair lower than expected.

The memory bandwidth figures, and the performance of the MSI Mega mPC 945 system in general are very good here in SiSoft Sandra. Size definitely doesn't affect system performance when the onboard integrated Intel GMA950 videocard will get you by.

Super Pi Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The program allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 thousand to 32 million. Our benchmark is set to 1 Million digits and 19 iterations.

Foxconn 975X7AA-8EKRS2H (975X 200/667) 41

Super Pi numbers rely heavily on memory bandwidth and CPU performance, both of which are present with the MSI MEGA mPC 945 and the Intel Pentium D 840 processor used for testing. An Intel Core 2 Duo processor would posted even quicker results.
