Intel Pentium 4 660 3.6Ghz

4. PCMark04

PCMark04 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results. As far as possible, PCMark04 uses public domain applications whose source code can be freely examined by any user.

PCMark04 includes 4 categorized suites for benchmarking your computer. These include CPU, Graphics, Memory and a Hard Disk Drive benchmark. In our case, we selected only the CPU test suite.

Intel's 660 CPU achieved the highest score among the three CPUs. The P4 530 had slightly better performance than AMD's 3800+.

The results in greater detail:

  Intel P4 660 Intel P4 530 AMD 3800+
File Compression (MB/sec) 5.3 4.1 3.3
File Encryption (MB/sec) 65.6 55.8 37.2
File Decompression (MB/sec) 42.9 36.5 28.9
Image Processing (MPixels/sec) 16.9 14.8 14.6
Grammar Check (KB/sec) 2.4 2.2 6.5
File Decryption (MB/sec) 102.3 86.4 74.2
Audio Conversion (KB/sec) 2779.1 2356.1 3171.9
WMV Video Compression (FPS) 59.7 52.1 56.2
DivX Video Compression (FPS) 77.6 69.7 71.8

In almost all the tests, the 64bit processor from Intel seems to lead. The AMD 3800+ was better in the grammar check and audio conversion.
