Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 Preview
3D Mark 05 benchmarks
Synthetic DirectX 9 Game testing is next with Futuremark 3DMark 05.
3DMark 05's CPU test module is multi-threaded and as such, the Pentium EE 840 once again takes the lead, this time by about 9% over the 3.8GHz P4 570J. The default game test however, is not multi-threaded. Here are the results for that...
With a 3.2GHz clock speed on each of its core CPUs, the Pentium Extreme Edition 840 chip scores a lot like a 3.2GHz P4 540J over all. We'll see if this translates over in real-world game testing next, with our Doom 3 benchmarks.
