Gaming: Doom 3 and Far Cry 1.3
I ran the default timedemo, ‘timedemo demo 1’, three times on each resolution and quality setting, and took the average of the second and third scores. We ignored the first one as it was always much slower than the following ones as the game was caching textures off the hard drive.
This is a custom demo we use in various PCP articles, run three times and average the second and third iterations.
The only notable difference between the two stock Pentium M setups is in the 1600×1200 test run with all the details turned up, where it seems the 8x AGP upgrade on the CT-479 platform is able to give a needed boost in performance. Even more impressive is at 2.6 GHz the CT-479 is able to out run the top Athlon 64 processors yet again!
