According to tests carried out by Intel Corp with Pendragon Software Corp’s Java applet, Java runs fastest and most effectively on Intel’s processors. The findings have been published in an Intel white paper, and the company says the 100MHz Pentium processor-based system was one-and-a-half to two times faster than systems with similar processors from other companies. However, Pendragon, Buffalo Grove, Illinois said Cyrix Corp’s equivalent processor appears to execute more raw instructions per second than a Pentium 100, but fewer than a Pentium 120. Pendragon’s CaffeineMark Java applet measures the performance of a system, and is being seen as a Java industry standard benchmark. Intel says the test results will be very good news for personal computer game players, who will apparently be the first group of users to benefit from Java applications running on Intel processors.
