Normally I would give the 3Dmark2001 SE results a miss as they rarely show significant gains when upgrading to a new processor. As you can see, there is near no difference between the Pentium 4 660, Pentium D 950 and Athlon64 3800+ processors. Therefore when I found that there was a 50% rise in performance from the Core 2 Duo E6700 over the Pentium D 950 I was simply amazed. This took the 3Dmark2001 SE score from 25287pts to an incredible 38313pts, without any overclocking what so ever!
Even 3Dmark2003 which looks almost exclusively at graphics card performance, saw a decent rise in performance from the Intel Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors.
