IBM's Data Explorer favors Giga-Athlon or Giga-Pentium III on i840, which is now winning this competition as well.
The ray-tracing/radiosity software Lightscape requires quite a bit of FPU-power, but i840s superior memory performance can make up for the inferior FPU of Giga-Pentium. Giga-Athlon won this competition before i840 entered the scene, but now it shows quite clearly that Giga-Athlon is in the urgent need of a high-end platform that doesn't cripple its performance anymore.
