Test System Specs: and benchmarks

Test System Specs:
Computer: Pentium !!! 1 GHz SL4C8 (cC0 Stepping) at 1.15 GHz (7.5 x 153 MHz)
Iwill BD133
256 MB PC-100 Apacer Ram (CL2 at 153)
MSI StarForce 822 (GeForce 3 200/460)
30 GB Quantum Fireball AS
Software: Windows 98 SE
DirectX 8.1 Beta
Detonator 12.90
Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra 2001 SE
HD Tach 2.61
3DMark 2001

On a side note, yes, I'm well aware that Iwill states that the BD133 has a maximum bus speed of 150 MHz. However, with a newer official BIOS revision, it allows you to scale all the way up to 200 MHz.

Of course, Sandra starts off our tests...

Sisoft Sandra: CPU Benchmark
Setting: MIPS: MFLOPS:
1.
7.5 x 133 MHz
2702 1339
2.
7.5 x 150 MHz
3051 1511
3.
7.5 x 153 MHz
3115 1548

Sisoft Sandra: Multi-Media Benchmark
Setting: Integer: Floating Point:
1.
7.5 x 133 MHz
5421 6632
2.
7.5 x 150 MHz
6120 7748
3.
7.5 x 153 MHz
6246 7642

Sisoft Sandra: Memory Benchmark
Setting: ALU: FPU:
1.
7.5 x 133 MHz
411 472
2.
7.5 x 150 MHz
465 533
3.
7.5 x 153 MHz
480 545

As we see, the board, CPU and ram scale quite nicely. This is pretty much to be expected as obviously, the higher the FSB, the faster the computer.

Next we see how the harddrive handles it this drastic change in speed... Do IDE controllers like to be overclocked? Do they perform better? Well, let's find out!
