Socket 7: Fit For Years To Come!

Office Performance

In the application benchmark Sysmark 2000, the K6-III+ shines again with outstanding results. It very clearly dominates over an Intel Celeron of the same speed. We've already published similar results in our last report on Socket7 .

MPEG-4 Encoding

The latest item in our benchmark suite is Flask Mpeg which allows conversion of MPEG-2 video to MPEG-4. This benchmark impressively visualizes how closely related encoding speed is to L2 cache size. With its 256 kB L2 cache, AMD K6-III+ is an obvious first here. Please note that less is better in this case.
