Benchmarks: Winbench99, SiSoft Sandra 2003

Winbench 99 V1.2 Source: e-Testinglabs.com

WinBench 99 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a PC's graphics, disk, and video subsystems in a Windows environment. WinBench 99's tests can run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows Me systems.

WinBench 99 v1.2 Benchmark Results
Epox 4PDA2+ Score Ranking
1a. Business Disk - 200/400


1b. Business Disk - 235/376


2a. High-End Disk - 200/400 34300


High-End Disk - 235/376 36600

4a. High-End Graphics - 200/400 1510
4b. High-End Graphics - 235/376 1720

Surprisingly we see a boost in HDD performance when the system is overclocked on the Epox 4PDA2+. Usually performance suffers.

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.

It's not much of a surprise that the Multimedia and CPU portions of Sandra get a boost thanks to the higher CPU speed. Memory gets a nice healthy boost despite running slower.
