AMD Athlon 1.4 GHz and Duron 950 MHz Review - Processors  1

Please excuse the mess on this image, I was having problems with Photoshop. 🙂 In all the tests except the Drv-07, the CPU clock speed has a fairly large impact on the results. Drv-07 is very graphics-processor based, so clock speeds don’t show a change at all. Also, once again the 1.33 GHz Athlon is able to beat the 1.4 GHz on one of the tests.

AMD Athlon 1.4 GHz and Duron 950 MHz Review - Processors  2

This test shows some different results when compared to the SiSoft Memory scores. Here the Duron 950 MHz is very close to the 1.33 GHz Athlon in terms of Read and Write scores. Yet, the 1.4 GHz still manages to pull slightly ahead of both and take the lead here.

AMD Athlon 1.4 GHz and Duron 950 MHz Review - Processors  3

The Duron suffers hard here, as the score of 100 is equal to a 1.2 GHz Athlon on a DDR system. It would seem that falling .25 GHz behind that speed pushes the results down a bit from its competitors. Notice the 1.4 GHz Athlon nearly crosses a score of 110 on both of its motherboards, ahead of the 1.33 GHz on the AMD 760. Memory would seem to not be an intensive factor in ScienceMark.
