Benchmarks at Lan party got me a bit flustered.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
At a Lan party the other night I got my three friends to run Performance Test 6.1 on their computers and I did the same on mine. We all have Windows Vista x64 bit. My computer got a 790, My friend with 4gb's of corsair Reaper and a q6600 got a 1220 and my other buddy with 4gb's of Corsair SLI ram and e2180 got a 712. I have run this program before in xp 32 bit and I scored much higher, 983 to be exact, I wasnt aware that vista was such a hinderence on the outcome of my benchmark performance. also does a q6600 with 2gb's of ram more than me really perform 400 points higher? I had no idea that benchmark wise it would be that drastic of a difference even though I am clock almost 4oomhz higher. Is it the cores that made the difference or just the amount of on die cache? also why is it that I barely scored a hundred points more than a computer with 2gb's more ram but at my stock clock of 2.2ghz?

I would guess it's the amount of RAM that you use and the CPU you possess.

That would be my guess too, I would think that an 800mhz overclock would yield a bit of a better improvement than 78 points lol. I guess ill have to get 8gb' of ram up and running soon and see how that improves that benchmark.

Not familiar with Performance Test 6.1.... as with all benchmarks, how does it measure and weight scores? Unless you understand what a benchmark compares, then don't worry about. A simple benchmark might just count your cores or clock. A more advanced one might through some FP calcs at it.

I've used it a couple times myself. Not sure what they really base the numbers off of but I score 1115.3 so I would think you wouldn't be too far behind. I did pull 2 sticks of ram out due to curiosity and it didn't hinder my score one bit.

I wouldn't worry about it though, it's running everything just fine still right?

You score lower in a 64-bit os because of the addressing. And a quad will always smash a dual core. The people who bring the arguement e8400 vs q6600 typically dont need the power of a quad or have never used one.

My computer runs mint, there werent any noticeable difference during gaming play between any of the three pc's really on UT3 but then again its not exactly the most graphically intense game I have seen. I see that the quad is quite powerful, but I have only been able to see that in a benchmark and not really play around with it myself. Although I do look to purchase one at some point or another.

I just reformatted my SATA drive and dumped xp pro, reinstalled ultimate (previously installed on a pata drive) and reran the performance test, I got 838.8, goes to show how much of a difference that just a SATA hard drive made almost 49 points lol.

if its anything like 3dmark a quad core proccessor doubles the points your CPU fetches.

3DMark is actually more of a test for your GPU, hence 3D...even a quad compared to a dual in that test won't alter things much, but if you swap in a new video card, you score will change dramatically.
