Here's the link to my PC Pitstop results
for my 8887. At first I had a score of 1366. I followed their tips and ran again and got the final score of 1422.
If you want to see all the details of my 3Ghz 8887 with the HT enabled, click the 'detailed summary' on that results page and it will show all the goodies! It would appear that the hard drive transfer rates are incorrect. They are obviously way too high on this test. I would guess the hyperthreading is causing the error.
Later on I'll redo my Windows XP with hyperthreading off to see if there's a difference in the test results This is a link to my PC Pitstop results
for my all-SCSI desktop workstation. It's an Athlon XP 1800+ with less memory (took some out to test another computer) and an old Geforce3 videocard, but it slays my 8887 in every way, shape and form except with 3D gaming. This is mostly due to the high speed hard drives I have in the desktop. But the test score is a lot lower than my 8887, showing that it's not a foolproof way to compare different computers. I Just wanted to point out that you shouldn't feel bad if you decide to test your laptop and desktop and find the results aren't what you're expecting
Thanks for the link to that site, GaitherStephens! I'll use it to tune up the computers at work
