DirectX 9 Performance
We can see that the actual game performance doesn't vary much over these high end processors. However, when we look at the seperate CPU score for each processor, we can see that the Intel line of proceossors tend to do a bit more behind the scenes than AMDs. Prescott laggs behind Northwood in this benchmark as well.
Once more, the DirectX 9 offerings we have are too GPU bound for the processor to significantly improve performance.
Again, we see virtually no real world performance differences in this game as it is highly GPU bound even at low resolutions. The Northwood versions of the P4 still maintain their very slight edge over Prescott.
