CPU Load Benchmarks: 3DMark05, Doom 3

3DMark05 - 100% CPU Load Test Source: FutureMark

3DMark05 is best suited for the latest generation of DirectX9.0 graphics cards. It is the first benchmark to require a DirectX9.0 compliant hardware with support for Pixel Shaders 2.0 or higher! By combining high quality 3D tests, CPU tests, feature tests, image quality tools, and much more, 3DMark05 is a premium benchmark for evaluating the latest generation of gaming hardware.

Prime95 + 3DMark05
Overall: Points Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 7974
Intel Pentium D 940 7269
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 7718
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 11456
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 7753
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 7846
AMD Sempron 3600+ 7447
AMD Sempron 3600+ (2.5 GHz) 7631
CPU: Points Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 2186
Intel Pentium D 940 4847
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 5149
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 5546
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 6447
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 6356
AMD Sempron 3600+ 4776
AMD Sempron 3600+ (2.5 GHz) 4822

It's rather surprising to see how little Prime95 affects 3DMark05 scores. Overclocking does boost the overall and CPU score slightly, however it's not noticeable in this test.

Doom 3 - 100% CPU Load Test

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced OpenGL game to date. It 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.

Prime95 + Doom 3
LQ 640x480: FPS Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 84.4
Intel Pentium D 940 129
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 126.8
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 147.8
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 129.1
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 121.8
AMD Sempron 3600+ 90
AMD Sempron 3600+ (2.5 GHz) 103.2
HQ 1024x768: FPS Ranking
Intel Pentium D 840 77.5
Intel Pentium D 940 99.3
AMD Athlon64 4000+ 124
AMD Athlon64 FX-60 126.4
AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ 128.7
AMD Athlon64 FX-62 136.8
AMD Sempron 3600+ 90.4
AMD Sempron 3600+ (2.5 GHz) 100.4

Even with "100%" load from Prime05, the Sempron 3600+ does quite well for itself in Doom 3. Loading the map and demo took a bit of time, but running through the benchmark was rather quick.
