I could get 372 fps in Quake 3 with a 200 fsb 3200+ Athlon XP. Most other reviews show the Athlon 64 at between 420 and 540 fps in Quake 3. It beats the P4 extreme edition in almost every single game. Your 3400+ results are way low in Quake 3 and COD. Did you use CAS 2 RAM?

The A64 3400+ wipes the floor with all P4 processors (including the 3.2 EE) in games and comes close in media encoding although not as good as a P4 3.2 or EE.

We were using Corsair XMS3200v1.1 256 x 2 (CAS 2) memory. Freshly installed OS, set up as per AMD's A64 review parameters.

One thing to keep in mind is we're using QIII 1.17 and we're using demo001. Are you using the same demo as we are?
