AMD's Thunderbird finally fully fledged

3D Gaming Performance, Continued

In Expendable the picture is similar once more. Thunderbird is able to leave its predecessor as well as Intel's Coppermine behind it, as long as this processor does not run on the BX133-chipset.

Unreal Tournament is known as a very CPU-intensive 3D game and Thunderbird can almost reach the performance of Pentium III on BX133. Again, the whole 'official' competition is left behind.
