3dmark03 cpu question

11 Mar 2004
Got a question i am a bit confused and was hopeing some one could help me out.

Recently put in a Xp 2600 from a 2400

Shoudnt the external clock be running at 333 MHz? 3DMark 2003 shows it as 166. I have my RAM set as 333MHZ in BIOS.

Also i got a 4653 is that decent. Seeing that i got about 120 lower than that using the 2400.

well the external clock (front side buy) is really 166x2 (close enough to 333mhz), and youll find in your bios that the ram multiplier setting is 2x fsb (the fsb being 166).
You should really get more marks, you might wanna try testing a few times and then averaging the scores.
3dMark03 is a DX9 benchmark. The score is driven mostly by your video card, not your processor. I recently upgraded CPUs, my CPU bench went up 50% and my 3dMark03 only went up 5%.
3dMark is basically a Video Card bench test. I have seen P2's hit high scores and low end systems. You need to run their hardware benchmark program.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
