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 965 was closest to the i7 920 processor. For the PCMark Vantage, the Phenom II X4 965 beat out the Phenom II X4 955 and the i7 920 only coming in second to the i7 965.
