Testing:

Sisoft Sandra is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, there will be a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of  the processor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Processor Arithmetic

 

 


Multi-core Efficiency

 

 

Memory Bandwidth

 

 

Memory Latency

 

 

Cache and Memory

Power Management Efficiency

 

 

The extra 512KB of L2 cache on the 6000 X2 pays off in the Sandra benchmarks. Even clocked at the same speed, the 5000 BE trails behind. Not until the 5000 X2 Black Edition is clocked to 3200MHz does it really stretch its legs past the 6000 X2 with double the L2 Cache. The 65nm Brisbane core absolutely crushes the 90nm Windsor core in the Power Management Efficiency test.
