Coppermine benchmarks from ZerO
Date 17th October 1999

Manufacturer Intel


17-Oct-99 - ZerO sent in some Coppermine benchmarks!

We just got some Intel PIII coppermine CPU engineering samples at work
and thought I would run off a few benchmarks for you guys.


These benchmarks were taken on a PIII 667 rated coppermine slot 1 CPU on an MSI 6163PRO with 128MB PC-100 7ns. Fujitsu ide hard disk and TNT2 U @ 175/205. The only cooling used was a really stock standard OEM PIII heatsink and single fan combo. It is a very small heatsink and crappy fan but the CPU didn't come with either and it was the best I had on hand. I can get this thing to post at 9x100 and get to splash screen but then it hangs. This is all on default 1.65V setting BTW.

I have an Alpha P3-125 heatsink on order from US which should be here next week. May be able to hit 1000Mhz without delving into more unconventional cooling.





Thanks ZerO! Now, everyone else - before you say "That's nothing compared to the Athlon" - it's not bad for a badly-cooled chip. Imagine one of these in a watercooled peltier sandwich! With a bit of luck you may not need to imagine for much longer.. :)
