Benchmarks: PCMark 2002, 3DMark 2001

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. 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 comparisons sake...

PCMark2002 Benchmark Results
Processor PCMarks Ranking
1. XP 2700+ (2.16 GHz) 6469
2. P4 2.4 GHz 5941
3. P4 2.8 GHz 6971
4. P4 2.66 GHz 6570
5. P4 3.26 GHz 8005

At stock speeds, the P4 2.66 scores just a bit lower then the P4 2.8 GHz processor and it's just a tad higher then the XP 2700+.

3DMark2001 SE Source: MadOnion

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 performance.

3DMark2001 SE Benchmark Results
Processor 3DMarks Ranking
1. XP 2700+ (2.16 GHz) 14371
2. P4 2.4 GHz 13919
3. P4 2.8 GHz 14765
4 P4 2.66 GHz 14347
5. P4 3.26 GHz 15650

Like we've seen in the other benchmarks, the P4 2.66 performs very close to the P4 2.8. When overclocked it totally beats everything else running at stock (it's running at a faster clock speed so this isn't much of a head scratcher ;-).
