AMD Athlon

OpenGL had been a very weak facet of the G400's performance, even the G400MAX didn't perform all that well in OpenGL applications.  But if you look at the graph below you'll see where the Athlon picks up and shows the Pentium III what the G400MAX is really made of.

The trend continues even in the Fast and Normal settings, the Pentium III at 650MHz doesn't come close to touching the Athlon at 600.  With the G400MAX it would take a slower 500MHz Athlon before the Pentium III could even catch up at 650MHz.
