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

OpenGL-Performance: Quake 3 Arena

In the four Quake 3 Arena timedemo runs, all of the Intel CPUs with 133 MHz FSB clock speed are ahead of the processors with 100 MHz. A record-breaking score is achieved by the Intel Pentium 4/2666, which achieves almost 340 frames per second. An Athlon 850 is just barely able to make 143 fps. The Athlon XP lacks the memory power, so all AMD platforms end up lagging behind. All chips that are not yet available on the market are indicated in red.
