How fast is your AMD K6-2/3
Hi, I just want to know how my AMD K6-2 500MHz with 72MB EDO RAM on a 83MHz FSB compares to other systems. Here are my Sandra 2000 numbers:
AMD K6-2@500MHz 72MB RAM
1847 3D Now
K6-III 450@500 on FIC PA-2013 2MB rev2
Integer MMX 1232 it/s
Floating Point 3D Now 1815 it/s
CPU 163 MB/S
FPU 166 MB/S
CPUMark 99: 57,4 - 57,7
FPUMark 99: 1690
I'd say that the real variable here is your motherboard. Get a 'notherboard that will go higher than 83fsb, or at least set it to 6x. 2x=6x w/ a K6. That would at least put you at 500.
For example: My K6-2 500 at 600 slightly out-performs Rapael's K6-3 shown above.
I'm running two systems with the K6-2 CPU
First is an EPOX G2 mobo with a 500 chip o/c to 5x120 with 2x128 pc133 ram
Second is a 450 chip on a PCChips M570 o/c (lol) to 6x83 (500) with 4x16MB EDO sims.
The difference between the two systems is ermmm.... zero!
Benchmarks will score far better on the first system but the differences you see are nothing. Only bandwidth hungry apps (like photoshop) will be slower but not much to justify the expense of a new m/b. As far as games are conserned.. well I have a ATI rage PRO 8MB and an ATI rage 128 PRO 32MB. Whichever system has the later card better in games, so if you are a gamer spend you money on a good card that will last to your next upgrade as well. Something sensible (not a GFORCE) like a matrox g400, just DON'T buy ATI.
K6-2 550@600,Shuttle 591p
Integer MMX 1592 it/s
Floating Point 3D Now 2210 it/s
how is everbody getting such a high 3d now score
heres mine amdk6\3 450 @523
floating p 1041
I think you are using Sandra 99. Download 2000.
gonna do it now!!
is it true what i heard about you have to doubble the bench in sandra if you are doing a mem bench cuz it counts wriong?
That's only true for us K6ers. Ahahahahah
Comparing different systems with sandra is not fruitful (mildly put).
I have sandra reporting my K6-2450 (@500) (on a 83 Bus) faster than the k6-2 500 (@500) on a 100Mhz bus. Considering the former setup had a multiplier of 6 and the later of 5, this is enought to make the former slower (longer wait cycles).
You can use sandra to check between different overclocking set ups of the same system.
Well, I my webspace provider doesn't allow IMG tags, so I'll just say it's very very very very slow.
