Exclamation Perpetual benchmark thread...

Edit: When you all run your benchmarks, please put "FullBench=1" in prime.ini...


Code:
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.00GHz
CPU speed: 1994.12 MHz
CPU features: RDTSC, CMOV, PREFETCH, MMX, SSE, SSE2
L1 cache size: 8 KB
L2 cache size: 512 KB
L1 cache line size: 64 bytes
L2 cache line size: 64 bytes
TLBS: 64
Prime95 version 22.8, RdtscTiming=1
Best time for 256K FFT length: 12.229 ms. 
Best time for 320K FFT length: 16.104 ms. 
Best time for 384K FFT length: 19.537 ms. 
Best time for 448K FFT length: 23.448 ms. 
Best time for 512K FFT length: 26.311 ms. 
Best time for 640K FFT length: 34.176 ms. 
Best time for 768K FFT length: 41.644 ms. 
Best time for 896K FFT length: 51.129 ms. 
Best time for 1024K FFT length: 55.390 ms. 
Best time for 1280K FFT length: 79.667 ms. 
Best time for 1536K FFT length: 97.379 ms. 
Best time for 1792K FFT length: 121.184 ms.
CPU - 2GHz Intel P4 (100MHz)
HSF - AVC Sunflower II
RAM - 1GB Crucial DDR (133MHz)
Chipset - Intel 845GL
Storage - 2x 120GB Western Digital WD1200JB
Video - 128MB ATI Radeon 8500 (275/275)

I'm pretty sure the memory is asynchronous on this board... One interesting characteristic of the 845GL chipset is it will not tolerate ECC memory at all... In the past I have run ECC memory in most of my motherboards and usually, if they could not use it, they'd ignore it... That is not the case with the 845GL... It will POST but it will not go any further...

The 845GL also has the ICH4 southbridge which means USB 2.0 and some other goodies... The onboard video is actually pretty good and doesn't slow down things too much, like previous integrated video solutions did... I run a regular video card though...

SIS645DX, DDR333 2.5/3/3/7/2

Annoyingly, my 4096K times seem to run between 270 and 276ms, based on the alignment of the planets. It's not a large difference, but the randomness and sub-optimality of it pisses me off.

I noticed something similar with my KG7-R / Athlon 1400 and a lower range FFT.

Sometimes, it seems to be running fast at optimum speed and sometimes, it's a bit slower (a few ms). This can change while the PC is running for nearly no reason (but after I use the PC). If I start from a fresh boot, it can be either "slow" or "fast". I then run some programs and let Prime95 run again by itself and sometimes it gets better. And vice versa.

I have no explication for this behavior. Taskinfo doesn't show anything special. Maybe the program interacts differently with the cache ? I have no idea.

Anyone noticed this ?

I think the benchmark should run a bit longer than it does... It is so short right now that any activity on the box will make the result invalid... If it ran each FFT size for maybe one to five minutes it would average out all these irregularities... What I do now is run the benchmark a few times and take the best one...

This is a P4 1.8A overclocked to 2.52GHz/140MHz FSB using 1.575v. Stock Intel Cooler. This chip does 2.7GHz requiring 1.65v but I dont want to run it on a 24/7 basis. Motherboard is Asus P4T533-C with 512MB RD1066 Memory.

It seems like with the newer P4 C1 stepping there ARE some clock to clock improvement over the current B0 stepping. Currently this includes the P4 2.66GHz and the 2.8GHz.

Xyzzy: I think the Intel 845x chipset does NOT support ECC at all. Thats why you will have problems when using ECC memory. Either not POST or not 'using' the ECC function.

Daffy: I do notice this. Sometimes notice that Prime95 is running slower than it should be. No idea how it happens it just happens.

The P4 will automagically slow down if it is too hot

Hi! I know that curiosity killed the cat, but here in Italy is virtually impossible to find some sticks of PC1066 memory: so, where didi you find 'em? Thanks!

The same is happening to me as well and no ideas too :-((

It isnt the heat causing the thermo throttling of the P4. It ALSO happens on an Athlon XP system that I have.

I got the CPU, MOBO and Memory in Hong Kong :) They are Kingston PC1066 ECC.

The 845 and 845E will allow ECC... Only the 845G and GL will not... I posted earlier that mine was an 845GL but in fact it is an 845G...
