Computex: AMD Releases 760MP Chipset For Dual AthlonMP

Windows 98 Results - 3D Games, Continued

In Quake 3's demo001 Palomino is once more able to leave Thunderbird behind, but the difference is still not very substantial.

The NV15-demo doesn't change the picture much. Thunderbird is about 5% slower than Palomino.

In Unreal Tournament the difference between Thunderbird and Palomino is minimal.

Altogether, we saw that Palomino is about 2-8% faster than Thunderbird under Windows98 as well as Windows2000. This is not as much as the promised 15%, but in some benchmarks almost as much as one speed bin.
