The New Athlon Processor: AMD Is Finally Overtaking Intel

The Results B - Floating Point Benchmarks

I'm still convinced that there's hardly a better floating point benchmark than 3D-rendering software. 3D Studio Max has served us well for quite a while and although it is optimized for Intel's P6-architecture, it's still a highly realistic test. 3D Studio Max was of course ran under Windows NT.

Well, you may see why this is my favorite benchmark out of them all. Athlon 600 is no less than 45.3 % faster tha
