Intel  Pentium MMX-200 MHz

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 MMX-200 on Intel's TX chipset with 64 Mb EDO memory, Matrox Mystique 4 MB graphics card, Quantum Fireball 3.2 hard disk. All three socket 7 processors (Pentium MMX, AMD K6, Cyrix 6x86MX) have been tested on exactly the same computer.

I' Bandwidth and Performance flawINFO

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.
As you can see from the chart, Intel Pentium MMX processors have generally normal rates compared to the other processors and all rates are very good when our workaround is applied (they almost double!).

II' DOS benchmarkINFO

In our 16 bit (DOS) CBENCHP benchmark, Pentium MMX-200 scored: loop 0.54, program 0.58, transfer 62890, video 81300, resulting of it being 291.5 times faster than IBM PC/XT.

III' Windows 95 benchmarkINFO

On Business Winstone 97 it scored 50.2 which is the lowest of the four (Pentium MMX, AMD K6, Cyrix 6x86MX, Pentium II).

IV' 3D/Floating Point benchmark INFO

On Quake Intel Pentium MMX-200 achieves 15.7 frames per second which is considerably better than AMD K6 and Cyrix M2.
