Pentium 4 560 and 3.4 GHz EE LGA775 Processor Review

By Vince Freeman :  June 19, 2004

SiSoft SANDRA 2004 SP1 Performance

SiSoft SANDRA 2004 SP1 is the latest revision of this popular system benchmark, but it sticks to its roots and supplies a wide range of individual benchmarks and system utilities. These include processor, system, network, hard drive benchmarks and many other performance tests. The integer and floating-point memory bandwidth tests are the most popular section of the SiSoft SANDRA benchmark suite, and highlight the potential performance levels of the CPU-memory subsystem.

While we saw Intel moving up the chart in PCMark 2004, the trends are not the same in the SiSoft SANDRA 2004 SP1 memory bandwidth scores. Here we see the new LGA775 Pentium 4 560 falling back a bit from the Pentium 4-3.4E GHz results, while the Pentium 4-3.4 GHz EE (LGA775) posts a slight improvement over its Socket 478 sibling. It's tough to read anything concrete into the SANDRA scores, but it's obvious that the individual tests are not as conducive to DDR2, as the PCMark 2004 ones.

The SiSoft SANDRA 2004 Floating Point Bandwidth scores show the same basic trends at the Integer results, and we still see the same contradictions between the LGA Pentium 4 560 and 3.4 GHz EE, and their Socket 478-based counterparts.

CINEBENCH 2003 Performance

CINEBENCH 2003 is a system benchmark that uses CINEMA 4D for both CPU and video-based testing. As this is a processor review, we're concentrating on the CPU score, which incidentally, supports both multi-processing and Hyper-Threading.

CINEBENCH 2003 really shows off the benefits of Intel Hyper-Threading, but the 925X vs. i875P comparison doesn't give a real advantage or disadvantage to either platform. For direct comparisons, HT gives an approximate 1.2X increase in overall CINEBENCH 2003 performance..
