Intel Pentium 4 1.6A GHz Review
Intel Pentium 4 1.6A GHz Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The gem of a processor operates at 1.6GHz and is based on the newer "Northwood" core which takes advantage of the 0.13 micron manufacturing process.

Benchmarks: SuperPI, Sisoft Sandra

SuperPI Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The benchmark is fairly diverse and allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 Thousand to 32 Million. The benchmark, which uses 19 iterations in the test, is set 1 Million digits.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

Super PI (1 Million digits) Benchmark Results (Lower is better)
Processor seconds Ranking
1. P4 1.6A - 100 MHz 105 sec
2. P4 1.6A - 163 MHz 75 sec

Even though the P4 has a relatively weak FPU, at 2.61 GHz, it goes through SuperPi quite quickly!

Sisoft Sandra 2002 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 2001 Benchmark Results
Albatron P4X845EPro Score

Multimedia Benchmark (FSB)

1. Integer SSE2 - 100 MHz 6402 it/s
1a. Integer SSE2 - 163 MHz 10359 it/s
2. Floating-Point SSE2 - 100 MHz 7823 it/s
2a. Floating-Point SSE2 - 163 MHz 12678 it/s

CPU Benchmark (FSB)

3. Dhrystone ALU - 100 MHz 3094 MIPS
3a. Dhrystone ALU - 163 MHz 5033 MIPS
4. Whetstone FPU - 100 MHz 841 FPU/1973 SSE2 MFLOPS
4a. Whetstone FPU - 163 MHz 1363 FPU/3188 SSE2 MFLOPS

Sandra is a good tester of theoretical power and the P4 1.6A at stock speeds doesn't perform very well, but once it's overclocked to 2.61 GHz it scores quite high.
