Our low-end machine continues XP's winning streak, but with a smaller margin than the high-end box. Windows ME's core shows its age, placing a distant third.
The situation is repeated on the low end; WinXP loses to 2000 by a small margin, while WinME brings up the rear.
Next we move our testing parameters to the world of number crunching with ScienceMark. Running simulations of things I haven't a prayer of understanding, ScienceMark at least produces some results that are easy to read. Let's take a look.
With our low-end hardware, the high-end trend persists as 2000 and XP are too closely matched to call. ME's 9x core prevents ScienceMark from leveraging the full computational potential of the hardware, and it stays in last place.
From scientific math to 3D rendering, the POV-Ray test measures the time required to perform a raytrace rendering.
