Intel's Pentium II Xeon Processor

Benchmark Results

I am very unhappy to let you know that I am still working on a server benchmarking setup and I'm also still waiting for several multi-threaded benchmarking software. Thus I had to come up with some own ideas on how to benchmark the Xeon CPU properly without this software. I will include server as well as workstation software benchmarks in the near future.

The used system consisted of the following components:

  • Two Intel Pentium II Xeon CPUs
  • Intel Marlinespike MS440GX Slot 2 Motherboard
  • 128 MB Advantage Memory Corporation PC100 SDRAM
  • Adaptec 2940UW SCSI Host Adapter
  • Diamond Fire GL 4000 PCI professional OpenGL graphics card for NT benchmarks
    Diamond next generation professional pre-release OpenGL AGP graphics card (name and specs under non-disclosure) for NT benchmarks
    Diamond Fire GL 1000 Pro AGP graphics card for Windows 95 benchmarks
  • Diamond Monster 3D 2 12 MB add-on 3D Card for Windows 95 Gaming Benchmarks

Winstone is a single threaded benchmark and thus doesn't show much of a difference between Pentium II and Pentium II Xeon. Viewperf is a single threaded OpenGL benchmark, which shows the same results as well.
