Dr. Damage asks: Bench the P4 how?

— 12:41 AM on December 6, 2000

OK, I have a 1.5GHz Pentium 4 box from Intel sitting here for review, and I'm looking for suggestions about benchmarking this thing. Obviously, I can bench it like I have other processors and systems in the past, but the P4 is a bit of a weird bird, so I thought I'd throw this one open to you guys, as well.

How would you like to see the P4 tested?

I'm thinking I'd like a mix of existing apps, traditional CPU benchmarks, and open-sourced benchmarks capable of being compiled with optimizations for the various x86 architectures out there. Post suggestions in the comments, or drop me a line if you prefer.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
