Benchmarks: Winbench 99, SiSoft Sandra 2004

Winbench 99 V1.2 Source: e-Testinglabs.com

WinBench 99 is a subsystem-level benchmark that measures the performance of a PC's graphics, disk, and video subsystems in a Windows environment. WinBench 99's tests can run on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and Windows Me systems.

Albatron K8X800 Pro II Score Ranking
1a. Business Disk - 200/400


1b. Business Disk - 245/407


2a. High-End Disk - 200/400 35100


High-End Disk - 245/407 35800
3a. Business Graphics - 200/400 1370
3c. Business Graphics - 245/407 1440
4a. High-End Graphics - 200/400 2160
4b. High-End Graphics - 245/407 2340

It's surprising to see that HDD performance goes up when the Albatron K8X800 Pro II is overclocked as performance usually goes down.

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.

Multimedia Benchmark

1a. Integer SSE2 - (200/400) 14791 it/s
1b. Integer SSE2 - (245/407) 14595 it/s
2a. Floating-Point SSE2 - (200/400) 19314 it/s

Floating-Point SSE2 - (245/407)

CPU Benchmark

3a. Dhrystone SSE2 - (200/400) 8270 MIPS
3b. Dhrystone SSE2 - (245/407) 8125 MIPS
4a. Whetstone SSE2 - (200/400)

3127 FPU/4084 SSE2 MFLOPS

4b. Whetstone SSE2 - (245/407)

3076 FPU/3897 SSE2 MFLOPS

Memory Benchmark

5a. Integer SSE2 - (200/400) 3055 MB/s
5b. Integer SSE2 - (245/407) 3006 MB/s
6a. Float SSE2 - (200/400) 3056 MB/s
6b Float SSE2 - (245/407) 3007 MB/s

CPU scores are in line with what we expect for the Athlon64 3200+, but the Multimedia scores are not. They're about 5000 or so points lower than the reference Opteron 1.8 GHz processor which is quite surprising. I'm also surprised to see that bandwidth doesn't go any higher despite running at 245 MHz FSB!
