Old processor it is but it certainly is still available for a little less than RM 200 at your local stores. Does it do the job well as a processor?
Here’s a CPU-Z screenshot.
Due to time constraint, I haven’t overclocked the processor. 😀
Super PI 1.5 Mod
The value chosen for Super PI was 1M.
|* Lower the better|
|Rendering (Single CPU)||2212||2733|
|Rendering (Multiple CPU)||4317||5172|
|Shading (OpenGL Standard)||2831||3794|
The benchmark was done with default settings. Here’s where you can download MAXON CINEBENCH R10.
Simply put, it is a reproducible measure of fast your machine can encode a short, HD-quality video clip into a high quality x264 video file. It’s nice because everyone running it will use the same video clip and software. The video encoder (x264.exe) reports a fairly accurate internal benchmark (in frames per second) for each pass of the video encode and it also uses multi-core processors very efficiently. All these factors make this an ideal benchmark to compare different processors and systems to each other.
|v0.58.747 (1st Pass)||26.45||27.95|
|v0.58.747 (2nd Pass)||6.31||7.4|
|v0.59.819M (1st Pass)||27.38||31.32|
|v0.59.819M (2nd Pass)||6.63||8.27|
Tests were done with the stock heatsink.
Bear in mind that they both come with different stock heatsink, thus thermal comparison is just for reference sake. 🙂
Those benchmarks – they either mean something to you or they don’t.
Generally it’s a good enough processor, if you’re on a budget and need something that does the job that it’s good to go. I’m currently using this processor for my graphic design work and occasional computer gaming.
