please keep in mind that the cpu speed difference in the tests is over 500 mhz.

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. Higher numbers represent better performance.

SiSoft Sandra 2002 Benchmark Results

Memory Benchmark (FSB/Memory)

1. Integer ALU - 256MB GEIL PC3500 (133/333 MHz) 2604 MB/s
2. Integer ALU - 256MB GEIL PC3500 (167/417 MHz) 3270 MB/s
3. Float FPU - 256MB GEIL PC3500 (133/333 MHz) 2605 MB/s
4. Float FPU - 256MB GEIL PC3500 (167/417 MHz) 3271 MB/s

Sandra is a good tester of theoretical bandwidth available but as we've seen in the past, just because a stick of memory has a lot of bandwidth doesn't mean it'll perform well!

PCMark 2002 Source: MadOnion

PCMark is a new benchmark from our pals at MadOnion which a whole system benchmark. It can be used on desktop PC's, Laptops and even Workstations and tests everyday computing from home to office usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used), video performance and even laptop batteries.
