AMD Athlon64 4000+ Socket 939 Processor Review

AMD Athlon64 4000+ Socket 939 Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Athlon 64 4000+ is not clocked faster than its nearest predecessor, but that doesn't preclude it from obtaining a healthy boost in the benchmarks thanks to 1MB L2 Cache.

Benchmarks: X2: The Threat, AquaMark3

X2: The Threat Source: Egosoft

A completely rewritten 3D engine based on DirectX8 encompasses many visual effects such as volumetric Nebulae (gas clouds) that have a real impact in the game (you can hide in them), many new engine, shield, weapon and explosion effects. Objects cast real dynamic 3D shadows! Dynamic DP3 bump mapping allows a previously unseen level of detail.

X2: The Threat - Benchmark Results 640x480-32bit
640x480 FPS Ranking
Pentium 4 540 (3.2 GHz) 184.172
Athlon64 3800+ 186.751
Athlon64 4000+ (NF3) 203.556
Athlon64 4000+ (VIA) 192.69
Athlon64 4000+ @ 2.72 GHz (VIA) 206.363

Unlike some of the other benchmarks, X2: The Treat shows the strength of nVidia's newest chipset for the Athlon 64 as it pulls ahead, almost equaling the overclocked processor score! Again, there is not much of an advantage over Athlon64 3800+ chip, but the A64 4000+ is still faster.

AquaMark3 Source: Massive Development

AquaMark3 is a powerful tool to determine reliable information about the gaming performance of a computer system. Because the benchmark extensively utilizes DirectX9, DirectX8 and DirectX7 functionality, it represents the requirements of typical gaming applications in 2003 and 2004.

Processors Points Ranking
Pentium 4 540 (3.2 GHz) 10426
Athlon64 3800+ 11246
Athlon64 4000+ (NF3) 10948
Athlon64 4000+ (VIA) 11413
Athlon64 4000+ @ 2.72 GHz (VIA) 12119
Overall Points Ranking
Pentium 4 540 (3.2 GHz) 62489
Athlon64 3800+ 68923
Athlon64 4000+ (NF3) 67336
Athlon64 4000+ (VIA) 69761
Athlon64 4000+ @ 2.72 GHz (VIA) 73209

In Aquamark 3, the nForce 3 Ultra combination does not fare as well as the VIA K8T800 Pro, and in fact boasts about the same results as the Athlon64 3800+ results. Overclocking the Athlon64 4000+ reaps some substantial performance benefits.
