  • In addition to Quake III, we also test with MDK2. Since MDK2 includes T&L optimizations, we turn this feature off to avoid potential interference in performance from the GeForce2 card. All other quality settings are maximized.

    With another record-breaking score, the DDR platform takes a leap in front of the other Athlon platforms and trounces the Pentium III 1GHz i820 in one fell swoop. These scores pretty much confirm the Quake III testing: the 760 chipset is ace on the gaming scene.

    I'll keep it brief, I promise.

    As we've seen, AMD's 760 offers excellent performance for gaming but lags a bit running content creation and office productivity benchmarks. For the time being, the Corona seems a bit clumsy in disk I/O (after all, it is named after a beer), but this situation will likely improve over time. The potential is quite blatant, as we can see from the bandwidth scores, and it is likely that future iterations of the Athlon will further unlock the benefits of a 266MHz front side bus.
