Intel Pentium 4 2.8G (2)
Our test environment
The AOPEN AX4G Pro i845G - a sleek black colour mainboard
In fact, we were already able to detect the P4 2.8G in R1.01 BIOS. We updated it to the R1.05 BIOS to ensure maximum compatibility
The following benchmarks were run on the same mainboard using a P4 2.4B and a P4 2.8G
As memory benchmarks are usually dependent on the RAM and also the FSB you're running at, the results obtained weren't quite a big difference. Anyway, results also fluctuate and we usually take the average among the few readings
CCWS 2002 needs no more introduction. This software has fast become the defacto benchmark of choice by major websites worldwide. The benchmark measures the speed in which how fast the CPU is able to cope with demanding tasks of the content creation tools like adobe photoshop, premiere etc. From the results, we see that there is an increase of 9.16% over the P4 2.4B.
A similarly configured AMD 2600+ running at 16 x 133 on ABIT AT7 KT333 mainboard and the same Corsair XMS3200 512M module at CAS 2, Turbo registers a result of 39.8 on CC Winstone 2002
While CCWS is meant for Content Creation tools, Business Winstone is for measuring more on business applications like spreadsheets, calculations etc. Again we see that P4 2.8G does have a 5.02% increase in performance over the P4 2.4G
A similarly configured AMD 2600+ running at 16 x 133 on ABIT AT7 KT333 mainboard and the same Corsair XMS3200 512M module at CAS 2, Turbo registers a result of 72.2 on Business Winstone 2001
Looks like the results are quite encouraging for the P4 2.4G when pitted against the AMD 2600+.
