I have two systems out of which the 486 system outperforms the P100 system in 3dBenchmark. So I wanted to check with the community if it is how it is supposed to be or something is wrong.
- 486dx4-100 , 16MB RAM, 256KB Cache, S3 Trio 64 V+
- Pentium 100, 32MB, 256 Cache, S3 Trio 64 V+
I used 3Dbenchmark with the HAL bouncing letters in the video test and the 486 system outperforms the P100 system which seems odd to me.
The 486 system scored 66 and the P1 scores 50.
Does this seem normal to you? Am I missing something?
I tried overlocking the P100 to 120 (by setting multiplier to 2x instead of 1.5x) but the PC hangs after a few seconds. I also tried changing teh S3 video card to Tseng Labs ET6000 and observered similar results.
I checked the mobo jumpers and the p100 system is set to 66mhz with the 1.5 multiplier. Both systems have 256 cache.
In the system information program the p100 system reports 65Mhz (not 100). The BIOS post shows 100mhz.
Both systems are working stable and are using the same AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files and run 6.22.
Your help is appreciated.
