FutureMark; Bapco SYSmark2004:
SYSmark2004 provides an application-based benchmark that accurately reflects usage patterns for business users in the areas of Internet Content Creation and Office Productivity.
Results: Intel dominates across the chart on SYSmark2004! The Extreme Edition processors led the pack closely followed by the Prescott and then the Northwood.
ScienceMark 2.0 Beta:
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.
Primordia “calculates the Quantum Mechanical Hartree-Fock Orbitals for each electron in any element of the periodic table.” We ran the benchmark on default using Argon as our element.
Results: We found that the Prescott had a hard time during this benchmark and actually ended up being the slowest of the seven processors we benchmarked.
