Benchmarks: Winstone 2004, Winbench 99, SiSoft Sandra

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.

In Winbench 99 the VIA PT894 does quite poorly in the HDD tests, but again this might be due to immature drivers. In the graphics portion of the benchmark we see that the VIA PT894 has a lot of potential 3D power.

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system as well as the individual components. The results are also purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance.

Units:

Processor numbers are about the same in Sandra, after all the CPU is clocked at the same speed for all platforms. Bandwidth is a bit on the low side though.
