Intel P4 3.46EE CPU and 925XE Chipset Review Page 2

Benchmark Scores

The Comanche 4 benchmarking demo was run with texture compression and hardware shaders enabled and sound disabled.

Comanche 4

A piece of software that has traditionally scaled very closely with CPU speed, the C4 demo gives the P4 3.46 and 925XE chipset almost 10% across the tested resolutions, barely cracking the 80 fps barrier at 640×480. This score makes the new processor the second CPU tested by SimHQ to reach a score of 80 (the first being the Athlon 64 FX-55).

Lock On: Modern Air Combat was tested using the first three minutes of the MiG-29 Intercept demo. The in-game graphics default setting of low was used to see if the two systems would display any performance differences.

LOMAC

LOMAC gives the new Intel setup a very slight edge, but nothing that would be discernible during actual gameplay. For a flight simulation, Lock On has certainly proven itself very dependent on the installed graphics board for good frame rates.

IL-2: Sturmovik Forgotten Battles – Aces Expansion Pack was tested in OpenGL and with all video options set to medium (normal for Objects detail) using the Black Death track.

IL-2 FB AEP

Of all the games tested for this review, IL-2: FB AEP showed the most appreciation for the 925XE’s faster front side bus, giving an almost 20% increase at 640×480 over the P4 3.4-based test system. The advantage does lessen slightly as the resolution increases, but the new setup still commanded a solid 15% lead at 1600×1200. Fans of the IL-2 series considering a Pentium 4 upgrade in their future should definitely take note of the 925XE’s performance advantage.
