We used different benchmarks to obtain a complete and balanced picture of the extremely overclocked Intel Pentium 4 GHz. The benchmark test results for 24 different CPUs provide a clear overall picture.

We tested OpenGL performance with four different Quake 3 tests. We tested Direct3D performance in the DirectX package with 3D Mark 2000 Pro (Version 1.1 based on DirectX 8) and 3D Mark 2001 SE (based on DirectX). The various MPEG encoding benchmarks provide us with a wealth of test scenarios. We encode a 178 MB WAV-File into MPEG-1 Layer 3 format using the Lame MP3-Encoder and MP3 Maker Platinum. The MPEG-4 test is one of our more established tests where we convert a 1.2 GB DV format file to MPEG-4 using VirtualDub and Divx-Codec 5.02 Pro. We also create an MPEG-2 file using the new Pinnacle Studio 8 video editing software. Our standard test repertoire includes measuring rendering performance with Lightwave with version 7.5 of Newtek, 3D Studio Max version 5, and Cinema 4D XL 7.303. Of real practical relevance is the zipping of files, which we carry out with the new WinACE 2.2 zip program. We use the Sysmark 2002 benchmark to measure Office performance. The new SPEC Viewperf, version 7, provides us with a comprehensive 3D benchmark suite. And last but not least, we have the faithful SiSoft Sandra 2002 SP1.
