Testing:

Office 2007 Excel Big Number Crunch: This test takes a 6.2MB Microsoft Excel speadsheet and performs about 28,000 sets of calculations, representative of commonly used numerical operations in Excel. The measure of this test is how long it takes to refresh the sheet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lower Is Better

 

POV Ray 3.7: This program features a built in benchmark that renders an image using Ray Tracing. The latest versions offer support for SMP (Symmetric MultiProcessing) enabling the workload to be spread across the cores for a quicker completion.

Higher Is Better

 

PCMark Vantage is used to measure complete system performance. We will be running a series of tests to gauge performance of each individual CPU to see which CPU, if any, rises above the others.

 

In the Number Crunch, the X3 435 comes close to the X4 620, while the X2 240e comes in last with the least amount of processing cores. POV Ray shows the same results with the Triple Core coming in between the Quad Cores, and the Dual Core in last place. Finally, in PCMark Vantage, the X2 240e surprisingly almost matches the Quad Core Athlon II X4 620, while the X3 435 overtakes it.
