AMD Athlon 3000+

4. PCMark Tests

PCMark04 & PCMark05: 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.

Great performance with the Intel CPU, outscoring the AMD CPU by 1500 or so marks...

More analytically the tests:

  AMD 64 3000+ Intel P4 530
File Compression (MB/sec) 2,6
4,1
File Encryption (MB/sec) 28,0
54,6
File Decompression (MB/sec) 22,8
36,5
Image Processing (MPixels/sec) 11,0
14,7
Grammar Check (KB/sec) 5,3
4,4

2357,7
WMV Video Compression (FPS) 42,6
52,1
DivX Video Compression (FPS) 56,7
69,9

Grammar Check and Audio conversion were the only tasks in the test suite where the AMD CPU managed to perform better than the Intel.

Same performance with the PCMark 04 Benchmark. The Intel CPU is first once more.
