AMD AM2 3500+ Vs. AMD 939 3500+Bosco - August 25, 2006
Specview being next on the list gives us a unique look at CPU performance. We ran both tests; using 3DS type rendering Specview is a very vivid test.
In the long test the AM2 won, though in the light test it tied its 939 predecessor.
Next we ran the HDTach set of tests. We ran the entire suite, as motherboard architecture, as well as CPU architecture can greatly affect the efficiency of a hard drive.
It seems as if the AM2 socket is not as efficient at dealing with data transfer as its 939 predecessor, though this could partially be due to the motherboard. As the motherboards mature, we may see an improvement
