KryoTech's Cool Athlon 800 MHz

Show Me The Numbers!

To give the user an idea of where the KryoTech Cool Athlon 800 MHz performance sits we tested several platforms. Included in the testing are Intel's Pentium III 550 & 600 MHz processors, and AMD's Athlon 600 & 650 MHz processors. The application benchmarks include SYSMark98 under Windows 98 & Windows NT. To test the FPU performance we used 3DstudioMax under NT. And for the gamers out there, I included results from Quake 3 Arena, Quake 2 and Half-Life.
