The next two benchmarks that I will take a look at are Specview 10 and PCMark Vantage.
Specview is a program that is designed to test out OpenGL performance. The tests are multi-threaded to take advantage of multi core processors like my E6600. Since the E6600 is a dual core processor, I will only run the 2X multi threaded tests. The tests that I used for these results are:
The results are reported as a number from the program and higher numbers are better.
The PCMark Vantage suite provides many tests that evaluate performance in a wide gamut of areas including web browsing and document surfing. Again, results are just the number that PCMark will give me and higher numbers are better.
Again, like the Apophysis results, the stock value for the DQ6 seemed low. Again I ran this test again and got similar results which left me as the power saving features as the only possible reason for this happening.
