Performance in Professional OpenGL Applications
Here we are going to check the performance of our test platforms in CINEMA4D viewports in AutoCAD 2002:
When the shadowing algorithm built into CINEMA4D is involved, Athlon 64 FX-51 takes the lead. It is probably the high computing power of this processor that helps it show such great results. As for the second test, where the major work is done by OpenGL driver, Pentium 4 and Pentium 4 Extreme Edition are the best.
The testing carried out in AutoCAD 2002 with the help of Cadalyst ?2001 shows that Athlon 64 FX-51 performs faster than the rival in this popular automatic projecting test set in all cases except those involving 3D visualization. The supposition about better optimization of NVIDIA drivers for Pentium 4 processors, which we have already expressed above, finds another piece of evidence here.
