bump. am really interested in someone testing mame89 with this script, no matter what your specs are. you can benchmark everything at once with one batch file (still have to weed through the mame results to see the fps line) but you can run it and walk away and it'll be done in 10 minutes or so to cut and paste the results back here. please try, anyone? thanks.

cool thanks drn, just the man i wanted to see post, but still interested in someone who hasn't tried it to try the benchall.bat out too. i wonder if you had two sticks of memory if that would actually use the full 800fsb, i.e. 400x2.

very curious, even though i've always thought a better cpu would make mame perform better, now i'm wondering if it's NOT the cpu that's making the 3200 outperform the p4 system, i think the 3200 guy overclocked it not more than 100mhz more. The hyper memory and the ati card might have something to do with it but will never know untill someone with a P4, ati, and hyper memory can try (which might be me as a guinea pig, since that's want i'm thinking on getting.) wanted to just take a step away from amd and nvidia for a while. thanks for the run.

EDIT* oh hey, the P4 got a better mrdriller fps, that's good!

Which should be normal. Something to do with a lot of floating point code, which Pentium CPUs perform better at. Why Tekken isn't the same is rather odd though...

There'd probably be a bigger gap on ZN games too.

Where is the batch file needed to do the benchmarks?

Figures are average fps over 5000 frames, run in 1024x768x32 resolution.

mamepp.exe and mame.exe were downloaded from mame.net, mamep4 was from another site. I tried some games with an Athlon optimized mame as well and got similar figures to mamepp.exe, weird.

Chad how do you do that nice table? (*done)

cool, thanks gaz, damn that's fast for a 2Ghz, the video card, l2 cache p4's normally have 1mg, or something else must be playing a part in the speed. The nice table is in automatically from the new board modifications. It seems a bit high in real estate and it happens for every attached file now. unless you are talking about my benchmark table that is made using the "Code" feature of this board while posting. It justifies each character like a real text screen.

Pentium-M CPUs are faster per clock cycle, like Athlons are. So it's probably somewhere around the level of a 3GHz P4.

doesn't seem to make sense that it's SO much faster, if you compare drns numbers 3.2 p4 PALES in comparison to the 2.0 M. sure sold me on a laptop anyway.
