    woot-mobile-woot

    not as fast as fastgame had it (due to cheap memory) but running the equivalent of a Pentium at 3554(?) Is cool

    Well, it's my desktop. I have Fastgame to thank. My computer is so much better (faster) now. I will never buy a computer now (unless a laptop) when its fun to build them.

    umm...

    you mean performance rating....

    My old p4 3.2ghz had a pr rating of 4390

    The PR rating system was developed by AMD in the mid-1990s as a method of comparing their x86 processors to those of rival Intel. The letters PR stood for "Performance Rating", but many people make the mistake of thinking that it stood for "Pentium Rating", as the PR rating was often used to measure performance against Intel's Pentium processor.

    read the full info here,

    nice computer you have lynch

    I don't know what a "pr" rating is but the pic shows "P-rating" - whatever that is.

    **edit - oh. Why would your P have a P rating? It's for AMD to compare to P.

    Good question LK, your well on the way of being an AMD fanboy. Challenge the competition at every opportunity

    Actually the "P" rating is for AMD not Intel
    P-rating
    A microprocessor naming convention used by AMD and other non-Intel chip manufacturers for a few years in the late 1990s. Chips used a Processor Performance Rating, or P-rating, to indicate the same overall performance level as an Intel Pentium regardless of clock speed or other variables. Version 1.0 of the P-rating specification advised using Winstone 96 benchmarks to ascertain a chipís P-rating versus a similar system with a Pentium. An example is P100, which indicates the equivalent of a 100MHz Pentium. AMD later revived the P-rating concept in 2001 with its XP naming convention.
    XP chip rating
    AMDís naming convention debuting with the Athlon XP in 2001. At the time, AMDís microprocessors had fallen behind Intelís in clock speed (measured in MHz and GHz) yet generally did more work per clock cycle (instructions per clock or IPC). AMD branded its chips to reflect performance correlations to Intelís Pentium 4s. As an example, the 1.53GHz Athlon XP 1800+ was marketed as roughly as fast as a 1.8GHz P4.

    sisoft sandra displays the mhz plus a pr rating so it actually disaplays it for the p4

    so it gives a pentium equivalency rating for a pentium?

    so a pentium 3.2 is equivalent to a pentium 4.3 - interesting -

    the p4 3.2 ghz cpu has a performance rating of 4323 based off of the same benchmarks.

    Fastgame, I heard if you use slot 2 and 3 instead of slot 1 and 3, you can clock a little more the FSB - true?



    Sorry Egghead - but the performance rating, as per Fastgame stated, is for AMD and other non-Intel chip manufacturers only. If you plug in an AMD at 3.2 it would probably give the same value. It's maybe only paying attention to the CPU speed, not the manufacturer, and giving the rating - considering it's not an Intel chip. (speculation)

    AMD at 3.2 ghz = Pentium at 4.3

    Because we know that:


    AMD at 2.4 is equal to a pentium4 at 3.5 (or whatever "P" means)


    Here's SS graph that shows AMD at 2200 = 3200 - http://www.sisoftware.co.uk/?dir=qa&...pu&langx=en&a=

    Reading this backwards shows a P43.2 is a "pr rating" of 3200 for the athlon -

    Athlon XP/MP 3200+ 512L2 2200=11x200 3200+ Pentium 4 3.2GHz





    *edit - I just took the test. Does it matter if I have 55 other processes running while this test is running?
