AMD Athlon FX-57 Overclocking - 3.54GHz with Phase Change - Benchmarks - Quake 3 Arena

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!

Quake 3 Arena is a real-world OpenGL benchmark that we have been using here at TweakTown for quite a while now because it has proven itself to be one of the best gaming benchmarks around to compare a wide range of different products. Quake 3 Arena is getting very old, but is still one of the best ways of testing video and PC systems for any instability and best performance hence the reason we are still using it today.

 

 

As with 3DMark2001 this remains another favorite for comparing just how fast computers have become. 717.1 FPS at 800 x 600 - simply amazing!
