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.

Lower is Better

 

For ScienceMark, both of the new dual cores blew the competition away, with the exception of the Phenom II 955. They were also very strong in the single core CineBench tests, but fell behind when multiple cores came into play. In HD Tune, there were ups and downs - but all within negligible margins.
