View Full Version : Which is better: P2 350 or AMD k6-2 500

I compared my computer(k6-2) with my sister's. I tried chrono cross in vgs with them. But they are almost equal. I think its a bit faster in the p2 350. My videocard is tnt2 m64 while the p2's vidcard is an ATI rage 4mb(i think). So, w/c is supposed to be better?

Well, the Pentium 2 is superior to the K6-2 but your K6-2 has the advantage of a faster clock, which accounts for the results.

The PentiumII has a much better floating point unit than the K6-2.

The PII fpu is not _much_ better than a K6, but it is superior. If the program takes advantage of the 3DNow! instructions on the K6-2 then it will be faster at the same clock speed. Of course, the fact that in this case the K6-2 is clocked 150Mhz higher will mean it'll probably win most benchmarks anyway. Important also is the amount of L2 cache on the Super Socket 7 mobo used.
