Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Intel Pentium D 940 3.2GHz Dual Core Processor Review

Intel Pentium D 940 3.2GHz Dual Core Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Built on Intel's 65 nanometer manufacturing process and with two physical processing cores running at 3.2 GHz each, backed up by 2MB of L2 cache, the socket 775 chip certainly makes quite a splash.

Pure 32-Bit Benchmarks: FEAR

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 4000+ 268
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 286
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 243
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 277
Intel Pentium D 940 212
Intel Pentium D 940 (Overclocked to 4.4 GHz) 263
Maximum 1024x768: FPS Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 115
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 105
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 131
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 99
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 103
Intel Pentium D 940 98
Intel Pentium D 940 (Overclocked to 4.4 GHz) 122

At stock speeds the FEAR framerate results are kind of low... relatively speaking. Overclocking boosts framerates very nicely, to 122FPS, so if you're a Pentium D gamer you'd do well to overclock your system.

Next up we're going to load the test system with Microsoft WindowsXP x64-Edition and retest the Intel Pentium D 940 processor with a series of pure 64-bit benchmarks, compared against several 64-bit benchmark results of AMD Athlon64 processors.
