    VIA P4PB Ultra Review - Benchmarks Continued

    (Page 6 of 8 )


    Similar to the results from Sandra, PCMark2002 CPU benchmark shows the P4PB Ultra with comparable scores to the IT7.  That is until we begin overclocking.  With both CPUs at 2.94 GHz the IT7 has a 122 point lead, but that is only about a 1.7% difference.  Also, you'll notice the CPU scores go down as the memory clock is raised.  The IT7 doesn't have this problems.  Is it latency issues with the P4PB Ultra?  Strange that Sandra didn't show the same thing.

    Things start to look normal here until we see the scores with the memory bus at 200MHz.  It is lower than at 133MHz.  Hopefully when we get into the gaming benchmarks this will clear itself up.  Again, the P4PB Ultra matches or outperforms the IT7 at stock speeds but starts to fall behind when overclocked.

    Continuing the trends we've seen so far, the P4PB Ultra outperforms the IT7 at all settings in hard driver performance.  About the only thing interesting on this chart is the score dropping on the P4PB Ultra when the memory bus is set to 200MHz.


    Well it definitely looks like there are some issues when the memory bus is set to 200MHz.  Considering what a memory bandwidth hungry benchmark this is it is really surprising.  Clearly, there are some latency issues here with the memory running that fast on the P4PB Ultra.  As a positive, the P4PB Ultra does manage to outperform the IT7 at stock speeds.


    The performance here mirrored that of 3dMark2001.  There is still a problem with the P4PB Ultra running at 200MHz memory bus.
