Intel Pentium 3-550E Review

Conclusion


In conclu..., no, wait! One last benchmark - aww, please? Remember the Quake 2 benchmarks from my P2-450MHz I started with in the introduction? Well, I've added the Kick Ass! results (blue line) - the P3-550E running at 683MHz and the Annihilator Pro at 145MHz/345MHz. Over 70 frames per second at 1600x1200 - who needs FSAA?

Quake 2 Demo1 - 16-Bit Color

Frames Per Second

The purchase of the P3-550E was one of the best investments I've made in keeping my PC up to date. With a price of around $200-250, it's hard to pass up, especially knowing it's overclocking potential. Of course, conditions were just right right for me to upgrade and in some ways I guess a bit of luck was involved.

Add in a graphics card based on NVIDIA's GeForce DDR, and you really have a system to write home about!
