AMD Athlon FX-57 Overclocking - 3.54GHz with Phase Change - Benchmarks - 3DMark Series

Byron Johnstone, our new writer from South Africa, is a complete overclocking nut and he loves taking all manors of computer products to the extreme. In his first article he has his way with an AMD Athlon FX-57 processor with Phase Change cooling. He shows us what the newest and quickest CPU from AMD can achieve at -12 degrees Celsius with the Prometeia Mach II!

3DMark2001 SE is a part of the popular 3DMark series. By combining DirectX 8.1 support with completely new graphics (including the GeForce4), it continues to provide benchmark results that empower you to make informed hardware assessments.

 

 

Although 3DMark2001 has long since reached its sell by date, it is still a firm favorite amongst many overclockers as a system benchmark. This benchmark is also heavily affected by memory bandwidth and here the Mushkin's are definitely helping give the score a nice boost.

 

3DMark03

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Build 360

By combining full DX8 and partial DX9 support with completely new tests and graphics over the previous version, 3DMark03 continues the legacy of being the industry standard 3D benchmark.

 

Please Note: Due to recent events with the 3DMark03 series, we are adding results purely for those who are still in favor of 3DMark03. These results should not be taken too seriously and are only added for interest sakes.

 

 

In 3DMark03 the CPU and memory bandwidth do not play as much of a role as in 3DMark2001, but still they have a noticeable effect on the score resulting in an approximate increase of about 13%. The 3DMark03 CPU score increased from 1305 to 1592.

 

3DMark05

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Build 120

3DMark05 is the latest version in the popular 3DMark "Gamers Benchmark" series. It includes a complete set of DX9 benchmarks which tests Shader Model 2.0 and higher.

 

For more information on the 3DMark05 benchmark, we recommend you read our preview here.

 

 

3DMark05 is a benchmark that relies more on GPU power than any of the previous 3DMark benchmarks. The increase is just under 3% only. However, if we look at the CPU score it went up by just under 25% from 5610 to 6985.
