Pure 32-Bit Benchmarks: 3DMark06, Doom 3

Futuremark 3DMark06 1.0.2 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.

AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ (Socket AM2 Overclocked to 3.03 GHz) 2215

Surprisingly overclocking the Athlon64 X2 4800+ processor does boost the overall score in 3DMark06 slightly. The X2 4800+ running past 3 GHz gets the highest score in the CPU portion of 3DMark06's test.

ID Software Doom 3 1.3 Source: id Software

Doom 3 takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limit. 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 with the third run being recorded.

AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ (Socket AM2 Overclocked to 3.03 GHz) 150.3

At stock speeds the AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ is a decent gaming processor, it's not the fastest at stock, but it does offer a good mix of value and performance. Once overclocked, the X2 4800+ runs quite a bit faster. If you need every last framerate, you'll want to overclock the CPU.
