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.
For SPECview, the Phenom II X4 955 was beaten in all six the tests by the Phenom II 940 . For PCMark Vantage, the 955 was slightly better than the Phenom II 940 and the Q9450, but still behind the Core i7 920.
