Ziff Davis CPUMark 99

Ziff Davis has had CPUMark 99 out there for quite some time. Simple truth is that it only takes a few seconds to run this benchmark and gives you a rough idea of what kind of performance a machine is capable of. A Duron 800 on the AOpen AK33 motherboard scored 66.7. Considering how long the Pentium III has been out it just goes to show that having one year old parts aren't necesarily a bad thing. You can download CPUMark99 from Ziff Davis here.

The Duron 800/AOpen AK33 board scored 2236 and 1090 respectively. Obviously the Duron's higher clockspeed and newer architecture go a long way to raise its performance. You can download Sandra here.

Here's where things get pretty interesting. The Duron 800/AOpen AK33 combo scored 409 and 495 respectively - an all-time high in all of my testing. At first these numbers may seem very low for the AX34 Pro II/Pentium 667 combo we are using for this testing session until you take into consideration that the average Sandra results for a 1 GHz Pentium III on an i820 (RDRAM) board are 325 and 345 respectively. Good old SDRAM at 133 MHz still looks to be performing quite well.

It's not at all surprising that the memory performance of the Duron combo was so high as it was nearly 100 points higher in both measures compared to other KT133 boards that I've tested. As a matter of fact the Duron 800 with an Azza KT133 board only scored 349 and 388 respectively. Obviously the results with this AOpen AX34 Pro II/Pentium III 667 combo show that the Apollo Pro chipset has matured quite a bit since it was first introduced.
