CPU History Tour (2001 - 2003)

Published: (last update )

Third part of the CPU benchmark project. This time starting with early Pentium 4 and Athlon XP Palomino and following the CPU development up to the end of 2003 when Athlon 64 launched.

Athlon XP (Socket A, VIA KT133A)

Athlon XP (Socket A, VIA KT266A)

Athlon XP (Socket A, SiS 745)

The ECS K7S6A was probably patrially defective and couldn't enable DMA mode for HDD. Because of this some scores might be worse than they should be, in case of too large difference I discarded them completely. The K7S6A results don't count towards the total performance summary.

Athlon XP, Duron (Socket A, Nvidia nForce2 Ultra 400)

Dual Athlon XP (Socket A, AMD 760MPX)

Athlon 64 (Socket 754, VIA K8T800)
