Performance Computing - Q1 2005 (AMD64 and SLI Overclocked) - Benchmarks - High Quality AA and AF

It has been 14 months since our last Performance PC article was published where we collected the best performing computer parts around and built up one of the quickest and most expensive systems of its time. Today we bring you our much anticipated follow-up taking a look at exactly what almost $5,000 USD worth of hardware gets you. Based around an AMD Athlon 64 system with SLI, we have oodles and oodles of performance to play with. Read on as we bring you our recommended Performance Computing system for Q1 2005.

High Quality AA and AF

 

All tests with were ran with 4 times FSAA and 16 times Antistrophic Filtering enabled.

 

1024x768 was chosen as it is still the preferred playable resolution with these settings enabled.

 

 

We were just shy of breaking over 13,000 with these high quality settings but none the less we see an extremely high score. Again the overclocking barely impacts system performance.

 

 

Even with these high quality settings, it is hard to believe that nVidia is still able to pull off over 10,000 3DMarks.

 

 

Doom 3 performance is still exceptionally high but we see the score jump down a little bit with the overclocked system, nothing major but it just shows that Doom 3 is barley impacted with the overclock of the system.

 

 

With AA and AF on we are still able to receive an average of over 100 FPS with our overclocked performance system.
