Here the new Athlon XP comes out about 5% faster than its 1.4 GHz competition. As of this release of the 3D Mark 2001, it did not recognize the processor as being anything more than an AMD product, which may mean that any SSE enhancements the program uses may not have been activated during these tests.
Quite some differences are seen here in terms of ALU memory performance. The Athlon XP processor is almost 20% better than the 1.4 GHz Thunderbird but only about 2.5% better in terms of FPU memory performance. These scores show that the new XP CPU can affect system memory performance somewhat.
The advantages of the new QuantiSpeed core in the Athlon XP processor give its FPU score a nice 10% advantage on the Thunderbird and almost a 10% advantage on the ALU score on the SiSoft synthetic tests.
