AMD AM2 4200+ Vs. AMD 939 4200+ CPU'sBosco - October 21, 2006
For the last step in our testing curriculum, we chose to run the AM2 through our standard Gaming benchmarks. These are the same tests that we run on all of our videocards here at OCC. This will show us if socket type, as well as memory, actually plays a part in game performance.
Quake 4, though being a relatively newer game, is still based off of the aging Doom 3 engine. There is still a noticeable frame loss between the sockets, even though the videocards are the same.
