DirectX 8 Hardcore Game: Comanche 4
Comanche 4 is one of the first games on the market to support DirectX 8. With its high clock speed, the Athlon XP 2600+ can basically gain ground and reach the performance of a Pentium 4/2533 with PC800. However, the P4/2800 leads the pack with 58 fps. When older processors are used, such as the Athlon 850, the game can hardly be played.

With the Lame MP3 Encoder, a 178 MB sound file in WAV format is converted to MPEG-1 Layer 3 format under Windows XP. The graphic shows that the AMD Athlon XP 2600+ is only two seconds behind the P4/2800 MHz.
