The new AMD processor also prove faster than the rivalry products from Intel in Serious Sam: The Second Encounter.

Although Splinter Cell is based on the same engine as Unreal Tournament 2003, the advantage of Athlon 64 FX-51 is not so evident any more. Nevertheless, the new AMD CPU defeats Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.2GHz with 2MB L3 cache.

The similar picture can be observed in Gun Metal game based on its own engine.

And in the benchmark based on a very beautiful space game called X2 – The Threat, AMD Athlon 64 FX-51 is not so successful any more. Even though it is faster than the top Pentium 4 3.2GHz processor, the new Pentium 4 Extreme Edition surpasses it.

All in all, I have to point out that AMD’s processor manages to retain the leadership in most today’s gaming applications. However, we shouldn’t forget that very soon the so long-awaited shooter games are coming out and the gaming market will change a lot. And we have no idea how well the new CPUs will perform in Half-Life 2 or Doom III.
