YOYOTech Water Dragon 940

Sisoft Sandra & SuperPI Results

Sisoft
 
SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC. Each of the benchmarks below were run a total of five times with the highest and lowest scores being discarded and an average being calculated from the remaining three.
 
 
 
 
 
SuperPI
 
SuperPI is the benchmark of choice for many overclockers as it's lightweight to download and can give a quick indication on how good a system is at number crunching. A test of 8 million itterations was performed a total of 5 times with the highest and lowest times removed from the results and an average calculated from the remaining three.
 
 
 
Result Observations
 
Going by the results from Sisoft Sandra and SuperPI, early indications would suggest that the Water Dragon 940 isn't quite up to the performance of its cheaper counterpart; the Spartan 300. This may seem strange considering the AMD X4 940 used in the Water Dragon is indeed quad-core and overclocked to 3.6GHz (compared to the dual-core Intel E7200 running at 3.5GHz in the Spartan), but a quick glimpse back at CPU-Z reveals that the Spartan 300 has a much higher clocked FSB and Memory; possibly explaining it's higher performance in these benchmarks.

Nice nice.

Though I think people will still prefer the Spartan 300 if they don't care about looks, don't care about a few extra fps and want to save money.

Anyone else agree?
