Intel Pentium 4 1.7 GHz: More Power For Less Money


This new OpenGL game comes with all kinds of cool features. It is our benchmark for state-of-the-art 3D-performance.

You can see that this new game is definitely equipped with Pentium 4 enhancements. We will probably find this effect in a lot of new games. Pentium 4 is able to beat Athlon quite comfortably.

The higher resolution doesn't change much. Pentium 4 is still ahead of Athlon.


MDK2 is not one of the latest games and so it is not surprising to see Athlon's lead ahead of the Intel processors.

The picture changes once the resolution has been increased to real-world measures. Once more the graphics card (a shabby GeForce 2 Ultra) is limiting the frame rate scores.
