The essential guide to IT transformation

Pete Sherriff has been slaving in his fab lab to produce a new RegMark™ to account for the existence of Athlon AMD processors and has come up with a formula he describes as the RegMark™ Lite®. According to Sherriff, he is unable to find a multimedia mark for the Athlon K7, so he has invented a way to use the Lite figure to compare all four processors on just two benchmarks. Said Sherriff: "This way the PIII/500 scores higher than the Athlon/600 which beats the PIII/600, but the Celeron still walks away with it." Mr Sherriff adds that he has been grateful for suggestions which will allow him to further tweak and improve his figures, and is currently attempting to incorporate those refinements into his calculations.
