Testing:

ScienceMark tests real world performance instead of using synthetic benchmarks. For this test, we ran the benchmark suite and will use the overall score for comparison.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

 

 

Higher is Better!

 

CineBench is useful for testing your system, CPU, and OpenGL capabilities using the software program CINEMA 4D. We will be using the default tests for this benchmark.

 

Higher is Better

 

HD Tune measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers.

The results in Sciencemark show the i5 661 performing below the AMD quadcore processors and ahead of all the Intel chips, save the I7 965. In the Cinebench testing, the i5 661 delivers the highest performance by virtue of the higher clock speed. In the multi CPU results, the two cores with Hyperthreading deliver results comparable to the quadcore AMD 955 and 965. HD Tune results are somewhat of a mixed bag, with lower burst speeds but a higher average read.
