I just replaced my Throughbred 2200+, with a Barton 2500+ that i was given. Both CPU's run at 1.8ghz, the Throughbred has a 266 bus, the Barton has a 333 bus. The Throughbred has 256k Cache, the Barton has 512k.
Sandra and Everest and both tell me the same information about the CPU.
When i do a Arithmetic benchmark in Sandra the performance is equal to a 2200+ not a 2500+ so im getting low benchmarks for some reason.
When i do a CPU Multimedia Bechmark, i get similar (but a tiny bit better) than the 2200+ it has in the Sandra database. Nowhere near the 2600+ (which is the closest comparison to the 2500+)
