PCMark™04 - Released!

Futuremark is pleased to announce the release of PCMark04. PCMark04 features both system and component level benchmarking. System level benchmarking produces a measure of the PC’s overall performance. It is a single number that is easily comparable to that of other PCs. However, advanced users and professional testers may want to further explore the performance of individual components such as the CPU, the memory, the graphics subsystem, and the hard disk. Component level benchmarking helps them to isolate the performance of individual components, exposing their strengths and weaknesses. PCMark04 even includes the ability to create custom benchmarks by putting together tests tailored to specific needs.

That score was only 275fsb 5:4 2-3-2-5, nothing huge. It didn't seem to be stable with my 3DMark settings.

all installed?

Ah, I see now. I installed the Windows Media Encoder 9, and now all is well.

Not too bad for this old 2.5A I suppose. I also had some stuff running in the background, so that might have made a bit of a difference. I'll try a few more times and see what I get.

Man, that's a nice score...wish I could get something like that. I can't manually overclock my CPU (can only flash it), so I don't want to take that risk after nearly frying my friend's computer doing it.

I'll just wait 'till the next computer, I guess.

AsianBatman
12-31-2003, 10:33 AM
Btw seranox..whats your system specs...because i to can not oc my cpu.

SearanoX
12-31-2003, 10:38 AM
Specs?

Pentium 4 2.5a
Radeon 9800 128 Pro
512 PC3200 RAM
Old Gigabyte GXG motherboard (I was going to upgrade it, but that has been postponed)

That should be all you need to know...I don't have the latest version of my BIOS, which may be it, but I don't want to go through the whole e-mail process with Award.

Soulburner
12-31-2003, 11:46 AM
Pentium 4 2.5a
Your CPU is 100x25?

SearanoX
12-31-2003, 11:50 AM
Yeah, that's right. I can flash it up, but it's too risky. I'd like to bring it up to around 2.8, but that's not going to happen until I get a new motherboard. Once I get a new motherboard, I'm also going to try for another 512 stick of PC3200, because I have only one stick of 512 right now, so I can't take advantage of Dual Channel.

Soulburner
12-31-2003, 11:57 AM
Flash? You are referring to the BIOS on your board right?

2800mhz would only require 112fsb, can your memory handle that? You said you have PC3200, that would be a huge underclock...

And your board doesn't support dual channel so two sticks would only add more RAM.

SearanoX
12-31-2003, 12:20 PM
I'm talking about getting 2 sticks when I upgrade the motherboard.

Yeah, I'm going to try flashing it up to that. I nearly messed up my computer earlier trying to flash it, though, so I'm worried...I put the multiplier up to 110 just to test it out, and I couldn't get it booted up to BIOS for nearly two hours.

Still, I'll try it out soon and see if there's a worthwhile increase, but I doubt there will be a huge one due to my motherboard bottlenecking me.

EDIT: Okay, I brought it up to 2.8, ran PCMark 2004, and saw an increase of about 300 points to 3690 (approximately). Do you think it would be safe to bring it up to 3.0? I don't have any extra cooling right now, buy my case has quite a bit of empty space in there, and has pretty good ventilation, with vents on the back and both sides.

I'd rather be safe than sorry, so unless it's not going to darastically decrease my CPU's life span or cause it to fritz out in stressful situations, I won't put it any higher without any extra cooling.

AsianBatman
12-31-2003, 12:23 PM
I think it should be fine unless you up the v-core.

SearanoX
12-31-2003, 01:24 PM
Okay, I overclocked up to 3.0, and I'm going to leave it there. CPU doesn't seem all that hot for now, and I'm going to get a new fan in there just to be on the safe side. Here are my final scores. Not amazingly high, but it's a good increase, especially for the more CPU-limited games like the UT2003 botmatch, Counter-Strike, and Raven shield. All tests were run using default settings.

PCMark 2004: 3911
3DMark 2001: 15900
3DMark 2003: 5582
Aquamark 3: 38498
UT2003 Flyby: 205.27 fps
UT2003 Botmatch (more CPU bound): 65.25 fps

Good increases on everything, and while it's not uberly high, it's still more than I expected for the most part. UT2003 should also be staying above 50 fps nearly all of the time, which is really all that you can notice. Anything above that is just gravy (at least for me).

3DMark 2001 didn't show a very big increase for some strange reason...at least, not as big as I would have though. Still, it's most likely the motherboard dragging it down somewhat.

Thanks for all of the help.

Wiggo

Quite frankly until the P4 supported HT and went to the 200MHz FSB they didn't perform that well at all. :beer:

SearanoX
01-01-2004, 12:28 AM
I know this is kind of the wrong place, but it pertains to my last post(s). I've noticed that while playing UT2003 and Raven Shield, I've had much higher framerates than what the benchmarks betray. In UT2003, my highest was around 120, lowest was 40 in some cases. Now, under the exact same situation, I'm getting 150 high, 80 low. I use a slightly lower texture resolution (Higher as opposed to Highest) as there's virtually no way to tell the difference between the two (even if you compare side by side, there's a very slight difference), yet gives quite a big fps boost.

Maybe I'll run some custom benchmarks...speaking of which, perhaps we could start a UT2003 benchmark thread? Not everybody has it, but it's used with virtually every test these days, and is an excellent way to guage system performance.

Soulburner

For UT2k3 I use the Flyby and Botmatch benches.

I ran PCmark04 with the initial settings in my sig, and I got 3254.

I did it again with the settings at, 14x148 2072ghz and got a score of 3291.

The third time I set it at 15x140 2100ghz and got 3278.

I thought it was wierd that the third score was lower. well, good thing for PCmark04, now I now what to run at until I get decent ram:rolleyes:

02-07-2004, 05:39 AM
Thats because your CPU speed increase of 28mhz was not enough to overcome the loss of FSB (and memory speed).

Ok, i ran PCmark04 again. I havn't changed any settings since the last time i ran it. I got a 3308, last time I got a 3291. why did it go up? I figured it would have gone down since the last time I ran it.
