Benchmarks: SiSoft Sandra, PCMark2002

Sisoft Sandra 2003 Pro 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. Higher numbers represent better performance.

Memory Benchmark (FSB/Memory)


1. Integer ALU - 512MB TwinMOS PC3200 (166/333 MHz) 2517 MB/s
2. Integer ALU - 512MB Corsair XMS3200 LL (166/333 MHz) 2515 MB/s
3. Integer ALU - 512MB Corsair XMS3200 LL (210/420 MHz) 3160 MB/s


1. Float FPU - 512MB TwinMOS PC3200 (166/333 MHz) 2355 MB/s
2. Float FPU - 512MB Corsair XMS3200 LL (166/333 MHz) 2355 MB/s
3. Float FPU - 512MB Corsair XMS3200 LL (210/420 MHz)

2920 MB/s

Since all the memory are using the same timings it's no surprise that at stock the TwinMOS and Corsair memory perform the same at stock. Overclocking brings a very healthy performance boost!

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...

Memory (FSB/Memory)



1 512MB TwinMOS PC3200 (166/333 MHz) 5766
2. 512MB Corsair XMS3200 LL (166/333 MHz) 5773
3. 512MB Corsair XMS3200 LL (210/420 MHz) 6686

Like Sandra we see the same thing here. Stock, both DIMM's have approximately the same bandwidth but overclocking really brings a nice performance increase.
