Workstation Benchmarks

SiSoft Sandra 2004

Winstone 2002 Source: Zdnet

Business Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's top-selling Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000 (SP6 or later), Windows Me, or Windows XP. Business Winstone doesn't mimic what these packages do; it runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete those activities to produce its performance scores.

Points Ranking

2x 256MB Samsung PC4200 (200/533)

2x 256MB Crucial PC4200 (200/533) 37.6

2x 256MB Crucial PC4200 (216/575)


At stock speeds the Crucial DDR-2 memory performs the same as the Samsung PC4200 DDR-2, which shouldn't be much of a surprise. Overclocking boosts Business Winstone 2002 scores just slightly.

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.

At stock speeds the Crucial PC4200 DDR-2 memory has a bit more bandwidth than the Samsung PC4200 DDR-2 memory. When overclocked, the bandwidth increases about 400MB/s.

PCMark 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.

Those are very high stock PCMark2002 memory scores indeed! 12,000 with a slightly overclocked system is also very good!
