The results of the new 3DMark05 test set do not depend that much on the CPU performance, that is why we would like to discuss only the special CPU tests from this package.
The processor tests from 3DMark05 test suite support multi-threading. Therefore, dual-core CPus show pretty high performance here. As for our today’s main hero, Pentium 4 670, it proves the fastest among Intel’s contemporary single-core solutions. The only thing that can actually spoil the triumph of the new Intel solution is the pretty high results shown by rivals from AMD, which have always worked faster in gaming applications than their Intel competitors.
