Performance in AutoCAD
To test the platforms performance in the new AutoCAD 2004 we used a modified Cadalyst C2001 test.
In the new AutoCAD 2004 version AMD processors continue running very fast. Pentium 4 CPUs can successfully compete with the new Athlon 64 only in wireframe mode. As for the performance differences between Athlon 64 FX-51 and Athlon 64 3400+, they take turns in getting ahead depending on the type of actions they perform.
