I've created a small demo that could be very useful as an SSE benchmark: <A HREF="http://studwww.ugent.be/~ncapens/PhongCar.zip" target="_new">PhongCar.zip</A> (1.3 MB).

It compiles DirectX 9 pixel and vertex shaders to (mainly) SSE assembly code. So no DirectX 9 hardware is required, but SSE support is recommended (else it emulates the SSE instruction with FPU instructions).

I get 23 FPS on a Celeron 1.2 GHz...

33 fps on a barton 2500+ (not touching the mouse after startup, and waiting for the number to stabilize. I could tell you 115 as well looking at the yellow dot :)

I got four.
Cpu is P4 2.8c, run in Win2k, 32bit color, 640 x 480:

1.86ghz(underclock,133mhz x 14) 23fps.
2.8ghz 33fps
3.4ghz(240mhz x 14) 40fps

Now disable HT:
3.4ghz(240mhz X 14) 49fps
Surprise !!

Why??

Why??

Do you have several applications running in the background? With Hyper-Threading enabled, execution time is shared with the background applications. Without Hyper-Threading, it steals nearly all execution time so it performs better.

The demo also doesn't use Hyper-Threading, yet. Once I've implemented it performance might be the same or higher than without Hyper-Threading. Unfortunately I don't have a Pentium 4 system. Any Intel sponsors around? :wink:

I got 44.3 on an AXP Barton 3000+/400 @ 2.2GHz (3200+).

HT on Win2K is generally not a great idea; it works best on WinXP...

That's not my system, it's under repair;-)

Looking at the other results mine seems high, ~50 FPS without moving the mouse.

Am I supposed to see two superimposed, psychadelic car images?

I'm running a Tbred XP1700+ @2.1 Ghz, 140 Mhz FSB, KT133A and SDRAM, Win 98SE, ACPI disabled.

I get 29 FPS with SSE disabled.

<b>Update</b>
I found my problem. One of my games left my desktop at 16-bit color.

Switching to 32-bit color everything looks good and I now get 37 FPS with SSE enabled.

I get ~25.5 fps with "morgan" Duron 1.13 GHz (10 x 113), overclocked from 1 GHz (10 x 100)

Rest of the system:

ABIT NF7 v2.0 (nForce2 Ultra 400)
2 x 256 MB PC2700 CL2.5 DDR working @ sync with FSB, 2.0-2-2-5, dual channel
Windows XP Pro
