These scores have emulated what we have consistently seen in this benchmark – it does not use more than one processor and since the memory bus on the Tyan board is slower, it simply doesn’t have a chance to win.
Same comments here as for the SiSoft memory results. These scores have nothing to do with processor performance and this shows off the lack of tweaking and options that the memory bus on the Tyan Tiger MP board has. The Epox 8KHA+ has a considerable 30% lead here.
This has not turned out to be a good page for the Athlon MP 1800+. While the test obviously shows that the increase in frequency from 1.2 GHz to 1.53 GHz in the Athlon MP chips improves performance, the ScienceMark does not have any SMP support thus it treats the Tyan board like it were a uniprocessor setup.
