AMD AthlonXP 2100+/2000+ Thoroughbred Review
AMD AthlonXP 2100+/2000+ Thoroughbred Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The enthusiast community has long known that the Athlon core does not need the high clock speed a Pentium 4 does in order to do the same amount of work...

SPECviewperf and Super Pi

SPECviewPerf 6.1.2 Source: SPEC.org

SPECviewperf™ is a portable OpenGL performance benchmark program written in C. It was developed by IBM. Later updates and significant contributions were made by SGI, Digital and other SPECopcSM project group members. SPECviewperf provides a vast amount of flexibility in benchmarking OpenGL performance. Currently, the program runs on most implementations of UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 95/98 and Linux. Higher numbers equate to better performance.

SPECviewperf 6.1.2 Benchmark Results
Processor / Test Score Ranking


1. 1.66 GHz (Palomino) 11
2. 1.66 GHz (T-Bred) 11.07
3. 1.73 GHz (T-Bred) 11.69
4. 1.9 GHz (T-Bred) 13.69


1. 1.66 GHz (Palomino) 29.6
2. 1.66 GHz (T-Bred) 29.91
3. 1.73 GHz (T-Bred) 31.92
4. 1.9 GHz (T-Bred) 39.14


1. 1.66 GHz (Palomino) 48.01
2. 1.66 GHz (T-Bred)


3. 1.73 GHz (T-Bred) 51.32
4. 1.9 GHz (T-Bred) 56.35

Here we see that CPU speed does have an affect on professional 3D benchmarks. Please keep in mind that the 1.9 GHz processor has a higher FSB.

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. 1.66 GHz (Palomino) 64
2. 1.66 GHz (T-Bred) 64
3. 1.73 GHz (T-Bred) 62
4. 1.9 GHz (T-Bred) 59

Here we see the power of the AthlonXP FPU. It's 10-15 seconds faster then a P4 at 2.6 GHz !
