CINEBENCH 2003 is the free benchmarking tool for Windows and Mac OS based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D R8. The tool is set to deliver accurate benchmarks by testing not only a computer’s raw processing speed but also all other areas that affect system performance such as OpenGL, multithreading, multiprocessors and Intel’s new HT Technology. Again, higher Frames/Second and lower rendering time in seconds equal better performance.
Results: Here the Intel 770 processor scores the same on both platforms. When overclocked the Dothan actually beats out the A64 4000+ and the Intel 660 processors.
Science Mark 2.0 is an attempt to put the truth behind benchmarking. In an attempt to model real world demands and performance, ScienceMark 2.0 is a suite of high-performance benchmarks that realistically stress system performance without architectural bias. For the Memory Testing, higher numbers represent better performance. On the remaining tests, lower seconds represent better performance.
Results: Here we once again see the “adapted” Pentium M test system out perform the 855GM board. The Pentium M also tries to hang tough with the other desktop processors.
