Computex: AMD Releases 760MP Chipset For Dual AthlonMP

Windows 2000 Results - Quake 3 Arena

Quake 3 Arena has the famous 'r_smp' switch that enables multi threading and you can see that the scores of dual-CPU systems are improved significantly. We know that the Pentium 4 architecture that is also found in Xeon 4 is able to score particularly well in Quake 3, which is why dual Xeon 4 is the clear winner of this contest.

Things change however, once the processor intensive NV15 demo is used. Now dual AthlonMP is able to get an edge over dual Xeon 4. You should also note the tremendous relative increase in frame rate from single to dual processor operation.
