Hyper-Threading Performance Analyzer

i was over at vr-zone reading about the new P4 3.06 review and they pointed me to this Hyper-Threading Performance Analyzer . decided to run it on my 1.6 oc'ed to 2.6ghz. i was wondering how accurate this tools is.

That all depends on what you mean by accurate! It's a synthetic benchmark, which generally means it doesn't reflect real life.

From what I've read about it, it's basically designed as a multi application tester, doing "common" tasks in parallel. (IE, Office suite applications). Roughly, it runs several tasks in parallel, and measures the time taken to complete the tasks.

I don't know how repeatable the results are. I don't know how realistic their environments are. In theory, it should show how well the machine copes with true multi-tasking. (SMP)

Of course, how well "hyper-threading" responds to that depends on what compiler optimizations were done, what other tasks are running and the length of the day.

Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
