hardware benchmark


Dear fellows,

We have an old computer at work and looks like it is slow, we don't know...This computer is, at least, 8-10 yeras old. It is our first P4 computer.

It is a Pentium 4 (not HT) running at 1.4GHz, FSB 400MHz with 750 MB of RAMBus and PATA disks at 7200rpm. Linux ranked it to 3026.48 BogoMIPS.

Do you know any linux benchmark program that shows its performance relative to others computers of the same class ?

We really need a relative comparative with other "standard" or branded computers, because we don't have any other similar computer here to make a side-by-side comparative.

We want to figure out if it is defective in any way or it is fine and it has a similar performance of others P4@1.4Ghz computers. We already check obvious things like CPU fan and CPU voltages.

We known there is such program in windows, but we can't install windows in this machine just to check this issue.

Even the bogus index, bogomips, may be useful, but we don't have any other reference to compare.

any ideas ?

I suggest trying HardInfo. The program supports uploading results for comparison vs. other systems. It's possible that someone may have submitted results for one similar to yours.

Bullseye !
Hardinfo is just what we are looking for !
I search the net, but I was not luck to find this program.
Nothing like sharing experiences here in LQ. LQ rules !

I installed an run this program in my personal machine and it is a nice program.
We will install this program in the suspicious machine and I will post any interesting results back in this post.

Thanks a lot Marsolin ! Great tip !

Just to close this thread, we realize the computer is not more slow than others computers of same class, thanks to hardinfo comparative ranking.

There is nothing wrong with this computer after all. The others new dual-core computers are too fast, which gave us the impression the P4@1.4GHz is slow.
