Intel Pentium 4 3066 MHz in the test: HyperThreading for the desktop

Madonion 3DMark2000

  • Judging by its release in 1999, the benchmark has long been a thing of the past and when it comes to evaluating a current graphics card, this is definitely the case. Since current cards of the GeForce 3/4 or Radeon 8500/9700 caliber no longer have any problems with the display of the individual sequences, the processor, chipset and memory in particular come into their own. In other words, exactly the components that interest us most in a processor test. A component of 3DMark 2000, the CPUMark , provides this interactionespecially the focus. Here the CPU calculates two game scenes 'in software', so it has to do without the hardware acceleration of the graphics card and thus do very heavy work.

  • There isn't much to see in our 3DMark2000 results , because this graphics benchmark refused to work when using the multiprocessor kernel of Windows XP. We reached an agreement with Madonion about this, and they told us that this was a known problem and that there were no plans to bring out a bug fix for it. The cause of all evil is the integrated system information program. UnderUsing the single processor kernel on our DDR333, we achieved a result of 15160 points, i.e. 310 more than the P4 2.8 with the identical configuration. With Rambus it was already 15663, but the Athlon XP 2800+ cannot be beaten in 3DMark2000.
