Benchmarks & Applications used

  • Sisoft Sandra 2004
  • Prime95
  • PcMark04
  • DVD Shrink 3.2
  • 3DMark03
  • Far cry v1.1
  • Unreal Tournament 2004

As we mentioned earlier, apart from the recently released Service Pack 2 for Windows XP, we used a Windows XP 64-bit edition beta, or as Microsoft likes to call it, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Customer Preview, to test our hardware. We were hoping to see a few improvements or changes but it seems not much has changed after all. For the tests we installed a beta version of the 64-bit ATI Catalyst drivers. We were pleasantly surprised to discover than not only the drivers are quite stable, but also on some benchmarks, we even got better results from the 32-bit platform. Of course, we noticed some minor bugs, especially in the 2-D acceleration area, but after all, it's still a beta version, isn't it?
