Athlon 64 scores 15000 3dmarks01 easily

| Posted: Jan 1, 1970 12:00 am

The Inquirer today is running an article on the new AMD Hammer CPU. Claming it has easily passed 15000 3dmarks. Putting it right up there with the new p4 3ghz+ P4s. This could be what AMD is hoping for to get them back into the highly competitive top end market.

We always knew that the AMD processor could do much better than the appalling 3dmark 2001SE of 7913 and we were right. The Athlon 64 at 1.8 GHz this time, 200 MHz faster than the one we tested before, combined with a Radeon 9700 should give a Pentium 4 a run for its money. ... This setup easily passes the 15000 line and gets very close to 16000 in 1024x768
