Pentium 4 goes 533Mhz FSB @ 2.4GHz - Benchmarks - OpenGL

Everyone knew it was happening, and some even knew when. Intel made the leap to a quad-pumped Pentium4 processor with a base FSB of 133MHz. Will this boost make it any more competitive in the current processor wars? Come join Cameron "Sov" Johnson as he puts this question to the test by checking out the brand new 2.4GHz Penitum4 running it's 533MHz quad-pumped in all its glory. It's time to see if we can separate the men from the boys!

Real World OpenGL Benchmarks

 

Quake III Arena

 

Quake III 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 range of different products.

 

 

Quake III has been one of the longest running benchmark programs ever used and it is still one of the best today for testing high speed memory and processors as it's dependent on both very heavily. Here the Pentium 4 533 squeezes all it can out of Q3 and the GF3 Ti500 card. This video card is stretched to the limits now. Even running overclocked speeds on the CPU we couldn't break past 205FPS. Time for a GF4 Ti4600.

 

Star Trey Voyager

 

Star Trek Voyager is a real-world OpenGL benchmark. Based on the Quake III Arena engine, this game is a OpenGL master utilizing DirectX 8. We also apply the new Opt3D patch to allow for the use of Hardware T&L's use as well as new optimizations for AMD Athlon XP and Pentium 4 SSE2.

 

 

Star Trey Voyager may seem like we are all trekin across the planet, but this is not 100% the case. Star Trek Voyager is based on the more updated Q3A engine with DX8 support. making it an ideal test for Pentium 4 systems, and again it shows. This time, the P4 533 is heading for the stars.
