At The Last Second: AMD's Trump Card - The Athlon XP 2600+

OpenGL-Performance: Quake 3 Arena

The four time-demo runs from Quake 3 Arena consistently show that the Athlon X 2600+ is unable to keep up with the P4/2533. The reason for this is that the Athlon XP lacks memory throughput, causing the AMD platform to land in the lower ranks. Note: all overclocked processors are indicated by the grey bars and serve as reference only.
