AMD Athlon64 FX-60 Dual Core Processor Review

AMD Athlon64 FX-60 Dual Core Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: It's important to note that each core has its own 128KB L1 and 1MB L2 cache; so essentially what we have here are two Athlon64 FX-55's squeezed into one package.

Pure 32-Bit Benchmarks: FarCry, FEAR

FarCry Source: Ubisoft

Real-time editing, bump mapping, static lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows, and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features that the CryENGINE offers. The game was set to Ultra quality and the Ubisoft's Regulator and Training demos were run.

FarCry
Regulator LQ 640x480 FPS Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 156.34
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 191.4
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 @ 2.88 GHz 215.16
Regulator UQ 1024x768 FPS Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 87.64
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 112.92
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 @ 2.88 GHz 128.3

FarCry results show exactly the same trend as the other 3D game benchmarks; the AMD Athlon64 FX-60 rules!

FEAR

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow.

FEAR
Minimum 640x480: FPS Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 244
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 286
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 @ 2.88 GHz 301
Maximum 1024x768: FPS Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 115
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 131
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 @ 2.88 GHz 142

FEAR results are much closer, but the Intel Pentium D 840 trails the AMD Athlon64 FX-60 by 15%.
