SPECviewperf 10 is a benchmark designed to test OpenGL performance. I will be using the multi-threaded tests to measure the performance when run in this mode. The tests used for comparison are listed below. The default multi-threaded tests were chosen to be able to compare across platforms. In these tests, higher scores equate to better performance.
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 SPECviewperf test, the AMD X2 7850 held on strong compared to the other dual cores. In PCMark Vantage, the X2 7850 was a bit faster than the X2 7750, but behind the rest of the pack.
