KryoTech's Cool Athlon 800 MHz

3D Game Performance Under Windows 98

Looking for the fastest system for Quake 3 Arena? Look no further. The KryoTech Cool 800 MHz Athlon simply screams.

No surprise. The Athlon 800 MHz processor achieves the fastest score in Quake 2. However, you can notice that the bottleneck is quickly becoming the video board, even with the CRUSHER.DM2 demo.

You'll notice we have never included Half-Life in our Suite of benchmarks when we do 3D graphics board reviews. Why? Because the CPU is the bottleneck with this game. Half-Life is a great benchmark for displaying CPU overall performance. Looking at the 36 FPS score, Half-Life enjoys the extra frequency of the Athlon 800 MHz.
