DronezMark and Wolfenstein MP

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

The DX8 Dronez engine is showing once again that is not very attuned to merely processor clock speed. While the 2000+ does see a slight increase in the performance, even at the 1024x768 resolution, the game is just too video card dependent to get a nice boost from the processor upgrade.

Of the two Wolfenstein tests, this demo (from Anandtech) is more video card dependent. However, that doesn't stop the 2000+ processor setup from beating its younger brother by about 3.5% in frame rate.

The performance increases in this test (also from Anandtech) are very similar at just above 3.5% in the lower resolution.
