Sandra 2001 Pro Memory Streaming benchmark
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.
