Behind The Silicon Curtain: Exclusive Test Of The P4/2666 With 533 MHz Rambus

3D-Rendering Performance: SPECviewperf

In the highly sensitive SPECviewperf test, CPUs with 533 MHz memory take the lead. The Athlon XP 2000+ overtakes the Intel Pentium 4/2200 with the Northwood core - here, the memory performance is simply too low (100 MHz FSB, 400 MHz memory clock). All chips that are not yet available on the market are indicated in red.

3D-Rendering: 3D Studio Max 4.2

In this benchmark, 10 images from the "Rabbit" scene at 800 x 600 pixels are calculated.
