Behind The Silicon Curtain: Exclusive Test Of The P4/2666 With 533 MHz Rambus

Office-/Internet-Performance: Sysmark 2002

The new Sysmark benchmark version 2002 serves to test all of the 22 processors on the different platforms. In each of the three categories, the Pentium 4 processors with 533 MHz memory clock are ahead of the competition. In Office Performance, the Pentium 4/2666 reaches a new high score of 187 points. Again, it's clear that the P4 CPUs are able to increase performance through a change in the FSB and memory clocks. One comment about the AMD Athlon XP CPUs: due to the lack of optimization, their performance is relatively weak compared to the Intel CPUs. All chips that are not yet available on the market are indicated in red.
