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. This benchmark was released March 12, 2002 and can be downloaded from
Madonion if you would like to give it a test run on your computer for
because the CPU speeds are about the same, the scores here remain pretty much flat.
In the memory portion of the benchmark we see the benefits of a synchronous bus speed.
3DMark2001 SE is the latest installment in
the 3DMark series by MadOnion. By combining DirectX8 support with completely new
graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE
has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor
manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite
demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test
a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders,
Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping,
support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests
using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better

always loved high FSB systems and here we see that the KT4 Ultra gains about 700
points! Not too bad!
