Pure 32-Bit Benchmarks: 3DMark06, Doom 3

3DMark06 Source: FutureMark

3DMark06 is the worldwide standard in advanced 3D game performance benchmarking. A fundamental tool for every company in the PC industry as well as PC users and gamers, 3DMark06 uses advanced real-time 3D game workloads to measure PC performance using a suite of DirectX 9 3D graphics tests, CPU tests, and 3D feature tests. 3DMark06 tests include all new HDR/SM3.0 graphics tests, SM2.0 graphics tests, AI and physics driven single and multiple cores or processor CPU tests and a collection of comprehensive feature tests to reliably measure next generation gaming performance today.

Overall: Points Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 4212
Intel Pentium D 940 4346
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 3886
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 7410
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 4483
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 4551
AMD Sempron 3600+ 3617
AMD Sempron 3600+ (2.5 GHz) 3815
CPU: Points Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 1685
Intel Pentium D 940 1590
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 947
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 1981
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 1939
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 2147
AMD Sempron 3600+ 783
AMD Sempron 3600+ (2.5 GHz) 842

3DMark06 benefits from dual core processors, and L2 cache seems to make a difference here especially in the CPU section. Even though the Sempron 3600+ is running faster than the Athlon64 4000+ when overclocked, it scores much lower.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limits. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

Doom 3:
LQ 640x480: FPS Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 128.3
Intel Pentium D 940 138.4
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 128.9
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 160.1
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 141
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 168.9
AMD Sempron 3600+ 91.4
AMD Sempron 3600+ (2.5 GHz) 109.2
HQ 1024x768: FPS Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 110.7
Intel Pentium D 940 135.8
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 127.9
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 159.3
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 141.6
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 158.6
AMD Sempron 3600+ 91.1
AMD Sempron 3600+ (2.5 GHz) 108

L2 cache plays a large role in how a CPU performs under the benchmarks, this is why the AMD Sempron 3600+ comes in last. The numbers are decent overall because the rest of the supporting hardware is strong but this system is definitely CPU limited by the 2.0GHz Sempron 3600+.
