If this post has attitude, seems to be overly aggressive, rude, distasteful to 99% of the users here, and shows a zealous defense of Intel... It’s probably Spud.

I got 367.2 but I'm pissed off that a CD drive gets weighted in.

Got a nice overclocked overvolted system to keep you warm at night? That's great. Guess I'll have to settle for a woman...

heehee 425.1 hmmm sorry :evil: 

I aint signing nothing!!!

Just as a comparison.
Anything over 300 for a Passmark rating is a reasonable score with current hardware. Scores that are over 400 however are extraordinary. It probably means that the whole machine is full of bleeding edge hardware.

e.g.
Athlon 64 FX-51, ASUS SK8V, Radeon 9800 XT, RAID Disk
PassMark Rating: 456.6

Your test screwed up my puter got a blue screen every time I launch it. I think its related to the fact I have raid 0 as it mentions somthing about my raid driver in the blue screen of death.

Get back to work and get us a better product to try.

If I glanced at a spilt box of tooth picks on the floor, could I tell you how many are in the pile. Not a chance, But then again I don't have to buy my underware at Kmart.
January 20, 2004 3:59:49 AM

I only got 377. For a poor little xp2500+ I guess that's not too bad. The 9600pro helps but pata hdd 32X burner and the ram realy killed me.
January 20, 2004 5:32:42 AM

Hey d00d my recent raid set failed 5 or so days ago got a new drive and FRESH install of xp its all tickity boo.

Their is a bug in this beta progamme.

Like I said what controller you got Ive got buddies with SCSI and IDE expansion card 3rd party integrated controllers with 0 probs with this program. I know when I had my systems memory timings too low when I ran PCMark my system would bluescreen reason was RAID controller.

BTW nice to see people can tell when its connor and when its me on.

Woah dont say that I never once thought that you didnt set it up correctly, didnt even pass my mind actually.

Is that controller from silicon logic (i think thats what the other guy is called) or Promise. Cause I ran back to run this test on my P4T533 and it actually blue screened too off the test. Its just a counter strike server with no tweaks or anything.

Trust me took me ten times to get the dam thing right, so I gotta right to bitch. Not to mention one of the drives failing after I got it all up and running right.

yup sounds like ya got the right version (chipset Sil3112)

Sorry Spud my mistake it's like you said Silicon Image not promise. Maybe my old board was promise I forget but I'm tired and gotta hit the sack.

I am going to fire Maxtor Hard drives Grrr.... they really performed poorly. I still love my Graphics card the GForce Ti4200 :) 

SONY better get their 52X drives up to speed, I ran the benchy with 2 different CD's just to make sure and I did a defrag of the hard drive before doing the benchmark.

Now I wonder how my matched Maxtor 40 Gigs would do in my XP 3200+ system with the installed Sony CD/Burner at 52x24x52.

Now I am real curious about how it is going to perform I guess I will have to load the benchy in and see. Real disappointed with the Maxtor 30 Giger but it is a 7200 RPM and running shielded cable at 133MB but it only has a 2 MB Cach not an 8 I think that is where it fails performance spec with this Bench Mark.

my score is interesting, because its faster than the 2500+ baseline, and only 10% slower on average in the CPU exclusive tests. i wonder if the 2500+ was using dual channel ram.
oh yea, and my 3d score is faster than the 3ghz P4/Ti4200 baseline as well...

ima reboot and try again, i think my HDD wasnt acting right (ive been booted for like 3 days now ;P)

you and taitertot need to learn how to tweak drivers

my crappy old 2000+/384mb/Ti4200 beat yor 2800+/dualchannelram in the 3dMark, and almost kept up with taitertots 3ghz P4/5900nonu

haha!

January 22, 2004 2:14:12 PM

BTW

one thing the program should do is turn off Vsync, when running the full screen 3d tests. it sways the results by a LARGE factor

another question (i doubt youll answer)

how come all the included baselines are so low? i mean a 2500+ has way more than 10% speed (mines at 1.65ghz 256L2 cache, 2500+ is 1.8ghz and 512L2 cache...) increase over my CPU. especially considering the chipset i have


and a P4 3ghz with the same video card gets a lower 3d score? dont think so

You should be sure to tell me how I should go about such things. Since even when i drop image quality and whatnot with the card I dont seem to score any higher.

January 22, 2004 3:21:19 PM

well, you have a GFFX... i was kinda teasing you but honestly i dont know much about how to tweak your card



really, all i did was overclock and enable a few hidden feature via RivaTuner (like an extra culling option, i turned UP mipmap quality, and enabled a few texture filtering options that allowes it to use bi-linear filtering on everything but the first texture stage)


really, i think it has to do with the drivers. i spend a good while tracking down the best driver for my board by searching forums and websites. finally found an old version that is really optimized for the KT333

and i use 45.25 Detonators. GFFX's benifit from newer versions, tho like the FOrcewares

Everything in that XP 2800+ Is tweaked the Monitor is a .20 Horz Pitch Flat screen Syncmaster 955df running at 100MHz refresh rates and the Registry has been tweaked with Coolbits to enhance the Direct 3D drivers for the GeForce Ti4200 card.

The Nvidia Chip set on the motherboard (nForce2) was loaded with the Nvidia overclocking software as the numbers posted for the cards clock settings confirm.

The RAM was set to the best latency timings possible and the CPU was set to 166x12.5 Stock but the CPU Voltage core was set up to 1.70V from 1.65 just to crisp up the CPU efficiency. The fact that the system ran the full set of test a few times and never crashed or had any problems can verify the stability of the OS and the hardware.

I think wusy's overclocked XP 2500 choked on the benchy as he posted something but it was a complaint and not a Score ;) 

The graphics card scored excellent scores considering that is almost 2 years old and played thousands of hours of Online Multy Player games the card is still rocking.

It would seem the only places the system dropped in scoring was 2 things I cant do anything about the MAXTOR hard drive even at 7200 rpm but only a 2 MB cach failed miserably even using protected overclockers round 133MB cable.

The SONY 52X CD ROM drive puked up a terrible score and both the Hard Drive and CD-ROM do not have a firm ware update that I am aware of.

However my AMD 3200+ Using 2 Maxtor 40 Gig 7200 rpm with 8MB caches and the New CD-ROM Burner @ 52x24x52 ripped up that benchmark and nearly scored what a AMD 64 got.

So in closing the XP 2800+ and the 3200+ Both tore up that benchy there is nothing at all wrong with either the Ti 4200 Graphics card or the FX5900 cards from Nvidia they both nearly maxed out the top speeds.

It would appear the operating systems for both computers are rocking and were only held back by a CD test... I have no idea why it is a benchy anyways.....and hardware that cant be updated such as the Primary hard drive in the XP2800+ machine.

I do not believe in installing a fresh OS to run a bench mark if a computer is up and running with no known issues and fully updated and configured/tweaked the way you would use it to play your favourite game online and you kick holy ass doing it then that is the OS/hardware I want to benchmark not a fresh lame install. A Computer is like a fine wine after it runs for a period of time stable with no bugs/properly maintained.

TO ANSWER taitertot
In the case of the XP 2800+ I had to type the whole list out here to post and all numbers are accurate as anyone who runs a similar rig will appreciate and confirm.

Taitor what in hell are you posting your score numbers are higher then the benchys top ratings please check your chit when you are typing in numeric numbers son!!!!

Look at the first line you have for scores in your post ? Explain the CPU Integer Math 276.1/150.6 <---Line it should read 276.1 of 200 BUT!!not more then the top bench setting of the benchy 200 as that is not possible.

In any case your scores looked fooked and none readable according the the bench marks base lines.

Your system definately beats mine in a few areas... but not by much. Considering your PR is 3200+, a 2.53GHz P4B shouldn't stack up as well as mine does to a 3200+. This should tell you all that you don't want SoD to build your next computer.

Oh and yeah, the graphs scale according to how your system scores... there is no 'maximum'.

Idiot.

What is funny about that.

I know you are a very knowledgable person. Who for the most part just likes stiring the pot, but we don't see facial expressions or hear the tone, so somtimes it's hard to take.

I dunno maybe if you are just clowing around an LOL needs to be put in.

Wussy, I'm sorry for over reacting.

Oh yeah, I should add LOL to my post :-)

As in my Post you did well on your tiny Intel Rig Zoron and your 399.1 did beat my XP2800+ system but since that one was built out of spare parts and my wife only uses it to surf web pages.....

However If you had read the post you would have seen I posted back before you that my primary computer Scored this and that buries your little Intel rig!!

My XP 3200+ after a good defrag of both Maxtor 40's and some good solid house cleaning and minor tweak settings scored 435.2


Yes read back Zoron :)  you will see the original post.

A difference of 36.1 points... not huge considering you have a 3200+ and I have a lowly P4B. That's what I was comparing.

You had better have a clean win-install when you try or I'll be all over you. LOL

Yes but you are forgetting Vapor that I ran the benchy on an XP 2800+ and a XP 3200+ an some of the other guys ran on Intel rigs and even the provider used a AMD 64 and you get the same baselines for all those systems. Of course if they did not use the same baselines for all kinds of computers then they could not very well call it a bench mark could they because everyone's readings would only be for that specific computer.

If you pull your head OUTA your ass dude you might have thought of that before you posted your dumb ass all over the internet.

Oh so its ok for you to compare your P4B against my wifes little XP 2800+ but as soon as I WOOP OUT MY BIG GUN my computer and boot your Intel rig all around the school yard then its not fair ?

LOL dude its ok you won the Intel P4B over my little XP 2800+ but my XP 3200+ bounced your Intel rig out the back fence into the parking lot.

Its ben fun goto go take the wife for an MRI scan late machine time is hard to get we been waiting for a month goto go have fun.

Zoron was wrong on two counts first he thought he was benching against my 3200+ when in fact I posted for my wife's 2800+ built out of spare parts.

Then when I had him read back and he saw the scores fro my 3200+ and that they whooped his Intel rig he has not posted back at all.

It would seem that it was ok for Zoron to jump all over my little 2800+ with his P4B when he got a better score but he doesn't think its fair for my XP 3200+ rig to bounce his itty bitty Intel rig around the ring.

I told you all if you want a game computer get an AMD it has nothing to do with price guys that is where you all fail to realise that an Intel CPU has no balls for online games its AMD that paves the way to a gamers paradise.

In fact in Vegas they had the TEAM COUNTER STRIKE matches this month and all teams used their own keyboards and mouse on yes you guessed it ALL LAN computers sporting AMD CPU's with a big fat AMD logo about 8 x 4 across hanging from the ceiling over the game platforms.

Why is it Intel never shows up when the chips are on the table ? I mean it was only the World Counter Strike Championship...............

He was always comparing his 2.53B against your AXP3200+. He expected you to have a better score with than 435 considering his score, that's all.
