Added a bracket for the Netburst platform for overall scores. Some will like it some will hate it. I dont care.

Your thread, your rules 😎

Please use the "quote" option if asking questions to what I write - it will really up the chances of me noticing 😀

I might actually come back with one soon enough - P4 2.8GHz, Radeon M10 (Mobility 9600). Desktop chip, socket 478. Will update this post once done.

Main PC: i5 3470, GB B75M-D3H, 16GB RAM, 2x1TB
98SE : P3 650, Soyo SY-6BA+IV, 384MB RAM, 80GB

Well, this is the best I could do before GPU started spazzing out, unfortunately.
I would have gone back to redo it with a GPU-Z window attached but considering the power brick was at its limit (this one requires a 6.3A charger and the only one I have is a 4.7A) I figured I should not push my luck...
Specs:

  • ECS Green 736 laptop
  • Pentium 4 2.8GHz Northwood, SL6Z5 (yes, this absolute bricc of a laptop runs on a desktop SL6Z5. No wonders it gets atrociously hot.)
  • 768MB DDR-333 (1x512MB + 1x256MB)
  • 80GB Samsung HDD
  • 15 inch 1440x1050 LCD
  • XP SP3

2003 crashes the GPU on me, 2000 will not even run.

Here's a completely pointless run on my WinBook X4 (ECS Green550).
CPU - Pentium 4M (Northwood) @2.0Ghz, socket 487 mPGA
GPU - Chipset integrated graphics, SiS 651, SMA VRAM
RAM: 512MB
3DMark 2000 Score: 3172

Now I'm going to go bench my Inspiron 9100, which I suspect will do much better with proper ATI graphics and a full desktop prescott chip inside. I'm curious to see whether it or PCBytes' G736 will do better.

9100 run is done.
CPU - Pentium 4 (Prescott) @2.80GHz
GPU - ATI Mobility Radeon 9700
RAM - 768MB
3DMark 2001 Score: 9877
Ran at native 1280x800.

Might also bench my ThinkPad T30 at some point.
What about my Pentium D (Presler) desktop? Those are netburst after all.

Personally, I'd say it should be since it's Netburst as well. (actually, everything from Willamette up to Presler should be Netburst architecture, IIRC)

But I'd wait and see what @supercordo has to say.

To everybody who thinks their Williamette system is too slow, remember me.

Yes I know, this board should have a lot more potential and i'm sure it has. However, this comes closest to my computer i had when this was considered modern 😀

Asus P4T
i850 chipset
Socket 423
128MB RDRAM (2x 64MB and 2x terminator)
Massive 1,5GHz Pentium 4
Asus V7100, GeForce 2 MX400 with 32MB

No OC effort 😀

Stuck at 10MHz...

I have a quite a few Abit motherboards supporting P4. My question is: Cedar mill is allowed or only Willamette/Northwood/Prescott?

All of netburst. Ill make new brackets as the benchmarks come in. With that said, you still need to participate in aiming for the stars. Stock benchmarks will no longer be accepted. Put some effort into overclocking the system.

Overclocking this board should be easy with CPUFSB. With a little FSB overclocking, you'd qualify for a ranking under supercordo's latest rules, waterbeesje.

The Asus P4T has overclocking options in the bios un less its an HP oem version.

How does one overclock a laptop I wonder? Would my 9100 even support it? I don't think I should try until I get around to tearing it apart and replacing the thermal paste... and I'm all out of thermal paste...

The biggest hurdle would be cooling if you could manage to figure out how to overclock it.

Its manual describes options for setting the FSB, Vcore and multiplier. Wow, I didn't know of any Pentium 4 motherboard that allows the multiplier to be changed!

A few minutes of web searching revealed some clues: The GPU seems overclockable, but the CPU does not seem overclockable because its PLL is not supported by software-based FSB-setting software.

To be honest I wouldn't attempt doing a OC on the ECS G736.
It runs hot as it is now - OC-ing on it would likely require radioactive liquid nitrogen cooling 🤣

You can change it if you have an unlocked P4. Which is very rare. I think Engineering samples were unlocked.

Oh wait, this happened some time I wasn't looking at the rules? Had this page open for a few days, so must have missed it 😮

Reboot is on its way one of these days
