Benchmarks: Sandra 2005, SuperPI, PCMark04

SiSoft Sandra 2005 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.

The 2.0GHz AMD Turion 64 processor inside the Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi posts massively higher numbers than the Pentium M processors inside the rival laptops in all but one category: memory bandwidth. Bandwidth is one of the most essential statistics for system performance though, so it will be interesting to see how the following benchmarks go.

Super Pi Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The program allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 thousand to 32 million. Our benchmark is set to 1 Million digits and 19 iterations.

Sony VAIO VGN-T140P 49
Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi 47

All contenders but the much slower Sony VAIO notebook do well in this benchmark. The Gigabyte n512's 1.7GHZ Pentium M actually beats the 2.0GHz AMD Turion64 by a single second.

PCMark04 Source: FutureMark

PCMark04 can be used on desktop PCs, Laptops and even Workstations and tests home and office computing usage. PCMark specifically stresses the CPU, memory subsystem, graphics subsystem, hard drives, WindowsXP GUI (if WinXP is used) and video performance.

The Acer Ferrari 4005 WLMi would not complete the hard disk benchmark, but handily led the rest of the tests.
