System Setup and Benchmarks

Our system setup for this review changed only slightly, in that we upgraded from our ATI Radeon 9700 Pro graphics card to the ATI Radeon 9800XT card. One of these cards was provided by ATI for our testing purposes, so we thank them for that.

Our benchmark suite did add two benchmarks as well. The 2004 revisions of the Content Creation Winstone and Business Winstone were thrown into the mix to give us an additional data point when comparing these processors.

Here are the test configurations:
