Benchmarks: Winbench99, 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.

WinBench 99 v1.2 Benchmark Results
DFI LANParty NF2 Ultra B Score Ranking
1. Business Disk - 200/400 9940
1a. Business Disk - 246/492 9560
2. High-End Disk - 200/400 35400
2a. High-End Disk - 246/492 33900
3. Business Graphics - 200/400 1190
3a. Business Graphics - 246/492 1250
4. High-End Graphics - 200/400 2110
4a. High-End Graphics - 246/492 2160

It's no surprise that HDD performance suffers when the system is overclocked. The graphics portion of Winbench does not get much of a performance boost which is odd considering how high the FSB is.

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.

4. Whetstone SSE - 200/400


4a. Whetstone SSE - 246/492 3479 MFLOPS

Memory Benchmark (FSB)

5. Integer SSE - 200/400 3083 MB/s

6. Float SSE - 200/400 2912 MB/s
6a. Float SSE - 246/492 3349 MB/s

Considering the processor is running at the same speed at stock and overclocked it's not surprising to see that the processor benchmarks are so close. The bandwidth numbers from the motherboard when overclocked though is extremely impressive and I'm sure they'll translate into some good 3D Performance!
