Last Passing Maneuver: Tualatin 1266 With 512 kB Versus Athlon And P4


With later-generation games like Aquamark, the greater complexity of the Triangle setup requires more computer power from the floating point unit (FPU). This is where the Athlon clearly has the superior architectural prerequisites.

At both resolutions, the P4 1800 takes the limelight: It is slightly above the Athlon 1400. In the Intel model, this is more likely owing to the higher clock speed than to superior architecture.
