Intel Pentium D 820

..:: DOOM 3 ::..

To finish of this first set of benchmarks, we have DOOM3. For this benchmark, we set the system settings to Medium Quality, and ran the benchmark in 640 x 480 to avoid the graphics bottleneck problem. This benchmark shows even more of a performance enhancement when placed against the single core 3.20GHz Pentium 4 “Prescott”. Here, the Extreme Edition 840 manages to overtake most of the other top end single core processors, though it still can’t manage to top the best single core solutions like the 3.73GHz Extreme Edition. The Pentium D 820 also shows a much increased level of competitiveness against the Pentium 4 processors.
