Babco SySmark 2000


SYSmark 2000 contains twelve application workloads and a "workload manager" application responsible for setting up the workloads, timing their execution, and reporting performance results. Each SYSmark 2000 workload consists of a real application (for example, Adobe Photoshop) and a test script that sends commands to the application.

The workloads are divided into two categories. The Office Productivity category contains CorelDRAW 9, Microsoft Excel 2000, Dragon Systems, NaturallySpeaking Preferred 4.0, Netscape Communicator 4.61, Corel Paradox 9, Microsoft PowerPoint 2000, and Microsoft Word 2000. The Internet Content Creation category contains MetaCreations Bryce 4, Avid Elastic Reality 3.1, Adobe Photoshop 5.5, Adobe Premiere 5.1, and Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 4.0.

I was not impressed with these numbers. The Pentium III manages to perform better in most of the SySMark benchmarks, and the Pentium III runs at 500MHz slower than the Pentium 4. Looks like the Pentium 4 at this moment is not the best solution for the average Office user.

There is no big difference under high loads due the limitation of the GeForce 2 Ultra chip.

I believe the numbers of the Quake3 Arena Benchmark speak for them self's. The Pentium 4 is the CPU for you if Quake III is your interest.
