Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Review

» Discuss this article (0)



Specview 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. Since the E8400 is a Dual core CPU on the two thread test will be run in Specview.




  • Catia
  • MAYA
  • PROE

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


Performance-wise, the E8400 is outclassed in this series of benchmarks. It does perform better than the Q6600 and Phenom in the Maya testing. In the Vantage testing, the E8400 does outperform the Q9300, Q6600 and the Phenom. This is probably due to just raw clock speed. When overclocked, the 8400 does start to make up ground but only to the Q9450 level. Raw clock speed helps somewhat, but 1.6GHz worth of additional speed does not quite get it over the hump.
