Testing:

OverclockersClub will be running the AMD Phenom 9600 through our benchmarking suite to see how the processor performs. The OverclockersClub series of benchmarks include both system tests and gaming benchmarks to verify the performance of this product.  If you would like to see how other processors performed in an XP platform, please check our CPU Section under reviews. We will show comparisons to other video cards using the Vista platform, which can be found below. All video card settings were left at setup defaults, again to eliminate any variables. The video benchmarks in this review were run under two different platforms, the Phenom and HD3870X2 video card was run as one platform while we used a comparable Intel system to show what the other side of the fence looks like and how it compares.
