We test every processor in 4 ways: memory bandwidth (and how the performance flaw affects it); 16 bit DOS using our own CBENCHP benchmark; Windows 95 using the standard real application benchmark Winstone 97; 3D and Floating point (=arithmetic calculations) using Quake.
System configuration: Intel Pentium II-233 on
Intel's FX chipset with 64 Mb EDO memory, Matrox Mystique 4 MB graphics
card, Quantum Fireball 3.2 hard disk.
I' Bandwidth and Performance flaw
The 'normal' rate
is the rate which is achieved with the best
normal way possible.
The 'innovative' rate is achieved by knowing the performance flaw and applying our workarounds.
The source of this chart is Membench. For more information click on the chart.
In our 16 bit (DOS) CBENCHP benchmark Pentium II scored: loop 0.44, program 0.53, transfer 157480 (due to its fast 512K on board secondary cache), video 25470, resulting in it being 340 times faster than IBM PC/XT.
III' Windows 95 benchmark
On Business Winstone 97 Pentium II-233 scored 57.8 outperforming all processors (Pentium MMX, AMD K6, Cyrix 6x86MX). It should be noted though, that a K6-233 reaches 55.3 and a 6x86MX PR233 (188 MHz) reaches 56.7 !
IV' 3D/Floating Point benchmarks
Pentium II is very good on Quake (due to its next generation floating point unit), it reaches 25 frames per second while the best of the rest, Pentium MMX-200, reaches only 15.7 .
