AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ Processor Review

AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Athlon64 X2 4800+ processor we're testing is based on the 'ACBWE' stepping, and was built in week 17 of 2005 so it's literally hot off the presses!

Benchmark: 3DMark2001, 3DMark05

3DMark2001 Source: FutureMark

By combining DirectX8 support with completely new graphics, it continues to provide good overall system benchmarks. 3DMark2001 SE has been created in cooperation with the major 3D accelerator and processor manufacturers to provide a reliable set of diagnostic tools. The suite demonstrates 3D gaming performance by using real-world gaming technology to test a system's true performance abilities. Tests include: DirectX8 Vertex Shaders, Pixel Shaders and Point Sprites, DOT3 and Environment Mapped Bump Mapping, support for Full Scene Anti-aliasing and Texture Compression and two game tests using Ipion real-time physics. Higher 3DMark scores denote better performance.

3DMark2001SE:
Processors: Points Ranking
Pentium 4 540 (3.2 GHz 925X 200/533) 23249
Pentium D 840 (3.2 GHz 955X 200/533) 22295
Pentium D 840 (32 bit Software / 64-bit OS) 21531
Athlon64 4000+ (2.4 GHz NF4 SLI 200/400) 28265
Athlon64 X2 4800+ (2.4 GHz NF4 SLI 200/400) 28501
Athlon64 X2 4800+ (32 Bit Software / 64 Bit OS) 27166
Athlon64 X2 4800+ (3.14 GHz NF4 SLI 262/574) 33412

It is common knowledge that the Athlon64 has a lot more 3D rendering power, and here we see the AMD-based systems totally dominate. At stock speeds the Athlon64 X2 4800+ performs on par with the Athlon64 4000+ CPU. This indicates that one core on the dual core chip is effectively sitting idle while the program is running.

3DMark05 is the latest version of the highly favoured 3DMark series. It is the first benchmark to require a DirectX9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shaders 2.0 or higher!

3DMark05
Overall: Points Ranking
Pentium 4 540 (3.2 GHz 925X 200/533) 5231
Pentium D 840 (3.2 GHz 955X 200/533) 5593
Pentium D 840 (32 bit Software / 64-bit OS) 5744
Athlon64 4000+ (2.4 GHz NF4 SLI 200/400) 5579
Athlon64 X2 4800+ (2.4 GHz NF4 SLI 200/400) 5592
Athlon64 X2 4800+ (32 Bit Software / 64 Bit OS) 5916
Athlon64 X2 4800+ (3.14 GHz NF4 SLI 262/574) 5735
CPU: Points Ranking
Pentium 4 540 (3.2 GHz 925X 200/533) 4963
Pentium D 840 (3.2 GHz 955X 200/533) 5879
Pentium D 840 (32 bit Software / 64-bit OS) 5728
Athlon64 4000+ (2.4 GHz NF4 SLI 200/400) 5110
Athlon64 X2 4800+ (2.4 GHz NF4 SLI 200/400) 6347
Athlon64 X2 4800+ (32 Bit Software / 64 Bit OS) 7263
Athlon64 X2 4800+ (3.14 GHz NF4 SLI 262/574) 7947

Running a dual core processor seems to help slightly on the Intel side of things however there is no performance boost for AMD users. We do see a slight increase in both Overall and CPU score when running the 32 bit benchmark in a 64 bit OS however.
