600 MHz with Socket 7: The AMD K6-2+

Benchmarks And Discussion

We used the same hardware configuration for all the benchmarks. Even though the test sample of the AMD processor was only specified for 500 MHz, the CPU ran at 550 and 600 MHz without any problems. Below is a list of the results for different clock frequencies, compared to the Celeron 500 and the AMD K6-2/500.

Application Performance

In the application benchmark "Sysmark 2000" the K6-2+ shines with excellent results. At a clock frequency of 500 MHz, it leaves the Celeron with the same frequency standing.

Game Performance

In the OpenGL game benchmark Quake 3 Arena the Celeron 500 leads the overclocked 600 MHz AMD K6-2+.
