3D Mark 2001 and Quake III

This content was originally featured on and has been converted to PC Perspective's website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.

You can see how well 3D Mark 2001 scales on the processors when using the same video card. Notice that the 1.4 GHz only gets a marginal advantage over the 1.33 GHz processor.

At low resolutions we can best see the CPU at work. We see a slight increase from 1.33 to 1.4 GHz and the Duron performs well considering it is still at a sub-1 GHz level.

As you know, at the 1600x1200 level, things get stuck behind the video card bottleneck.

Was that 1.4GHZ Athlon overclock to 1.65GHZ done with a voltage bump, or with stock voltage? Thanks
