ATHLON XP 3200 ATHLON XP 2500 SEMPRON 2200

COMMENT "The FPU Single and Double Precision tests favour a high clockspeed so it was no surprise that the Athlon XP 3200 is ahead of the Athlon XP 2500 by 18% and the Sempron 2200 by 33%."

COMMENT "We are now testing memory performance so clockspeed doesn't effect the results too much but the FSB will effect the score. This is why the Athlon XP 3200 outperforms the Athlon XP 2500 by 12% and the Sempron 2200 by 16%. The Athlon XP 2500 has a narrow victory over the Sempron 2200 of only 6%."

ATHLON XP 3200 ATHLON XP 2500 SEMPRON 2200

COMMENT "We are now using the benchmarks which really favour the clockspeed and the Athlon XP 3200 outperforms the Athlon XP 2500 by 17% and the Sempron 2200 by 33%. I wouldn't recomment using the Sempron 2200 for any Raytracing or similar uses."
