Overclocking The AMD 4200+ AM2 Processor Part 2Wed, Aug 09, 2006 - 12:00 AM
NovaLogic; Comanche 4:
The Comanche 4 benchmark demo is a unique benchmark as it represents a real-world gaming experience. It contains the single player Eagle’s Talon mission from the game as well as a detailed cinematic. This DirectX 8.1 benchmark demo measures your system’s performance in the standard frames per second format. This game is very old, but even today it is one of the best gaming benchmarks to show raw CPU performance.
Since Comanche 4 is not GPU limited we can see what a difference the CPU makes when overclocking, so this benchmark is perfect for CPU performance. Starting out at default speeds the 4200+ was able to complete the test with an average of 81.08 frames per second, which is great, but wait till the overclocking results! Under water cooling the score jumped up to 112.00FPS, an increase of 31.01FPS. Comance 4 performance improved 38% by overclocking our processor 40%.
