The two dual-Athlon systems here are nearly identical in memory speed as the processors do not effect them. The Epox 8KHA+ and the Athlon XP 1800+ are having a great advantage in the synthetic memory test here.
At last the Athlon MP 1800+ system is showing to have a nice lead over the family competition. The 1.53 GHz MP processor beats the 1.2 GHz MP processor by over 27% and takes the single processor board to school by taking a 98% lead!
Due to the way in which the Athlon MP processors can share cache, we see some minor improvements here. The Athlon MP 1800+ dual-Athlon system can outpace a single processor by about 30% — and given proper program and utilization of this fact, many programs will see an advantage with the AMD-760 MP powered system.
