Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 - Page 8

..:: DOOM 3 - Multi-Tasking ::..

When it comes to multi-tasking with DOOM 3, we see both processors taking an expected hit in overall performance, but the Extreme Edition 840 still manages to out-do the 3.73GHz EE by about 1%. Obviously this isnít the huge increase we saw with Cinebench, however under a non-multi-tasking environment the 3.73GHz EE was easily able to put up higher marks than the 840. This goes to show where the true power of multiple cores lies.
