Benchmarks: 3DMark05, Comanche 4, UT2003

3DMark05 Source: FutureMark

3DMark05 is the latest version of the highly favoured 3DMark series. It is the first benchmark to require a DirectX®9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shaders 2.0 or higher!

3DMark05
Overall: Points Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) 5666
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) 6017
Athlon64 3700+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) Stock 5879
Athlon64 3700+ 2.81 GHz (255/510) Air Cooled 6036

CPU Points Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) 4878
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) 5970
Athlon64 3700+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) Stock 5015
Athlon64 3700+ 2.81 GHz (255/510) Air Cooled 6165
Athlon64 3700+ 3.22 GHz (293/500) Prometeia 6742

3DMark05 is a very videocard heavy benchmark but in the CPU portion of the test it's amazing to see the air cooled Athlon64 3700+ @ 2.81 GHz outperform the Athlon64 3500+ @ 3.05 GHz! That L2 cache really helps.

Comanche 4 Source: Novalogic

The Comanche 4 benchmark demo is a unique benchmark as it represents a real-world gaming experience. It contains the single player "Eagle's Talon" mission from the game as well as a detailed cinematic. This DirectX 8.1 benchmark demo will measure your system's performance in the standard frames per second format. The benchmark was run with audio disabled.

Comanche 4
Processors: FPS Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) 71.22
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) 95.23
Athlon64 3700+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) Stock 74.45
Athlon64 3700+ 2.81 GHz (255/510) Air Cooled 94.23
Athlon64 3700+ 3.22 GHz (293/500) Prometeia 106.53

Comanche 4 showed some serious improvements due to overclocking. Again we see the benefits of a larger L2 cache, and when overclocked with the Prometeia, nothing can catch the Athlon64 3700+.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

UT2003
Flyby: Points Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) 314.24
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) 412.11
Athlon64 3700+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) Stock 329.14
Athlon64 3700+ 2.81 GHz (255/510) Air Cooled 417.76
Athlon64 3700+ 3.22 GHz (293/500) Prometeia 476.34
Botmatch: Points Ranking
Athlon64 3500+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) 99
Athlon64 3500+ 3.05 GHz (277/498) 127.96
Athlon64 3700+ 2.2 GHz (200/400) Stock 102.39
Athlon64 3700+ 2.81 GHz (255/510) Air Cooled 129.22
Athlon64 3700+ 3.22 GHz (293/500) Prometeia 146.17

UT2003 performance scales very nicely as the clock speeds are raised.
