DDR-SDRAM Has Finally Arrived

Sysmark 2000

Good old Sysmark2000 had to show how much gain DDR-SDRAM is bringing users of office applications.

Those results are rather interesting and I asked for several re-runs until I could completely trust them. The AMD760-platform with Athlon 1200/133 MHz is performing extremely well, scoring almost 11% better than an Athlon 1200/100 on a Asus A7V motherboard. However, the Athlon 1000/100 in Gigabyte's GA-7DX couldn't take much advantage of its PC266/PC2100 DDR SDRAM. Pentium III 933 on VIA's VT8633 reference platform was also able to gain a few points due to the DDR SDRAM.
