Testing:


For testing this new and blistering Quad core from Intel we will be throwing the usual suite of OCC benchmarks at it and seeing just how fast it can crunch the numbers! I will be comparing this mega-chip to an AMD 4000+ (939), AMD X2 4800+ (939), AMD 5400X2, E6400, E6600 and E6600. Let’s see how things unfold. (We have more CPU reviews on the way).
The reason that a different board was using for test on the Core 2's was to see if they could still do well with an older chipset.

Apophysis


Apophysis uses a very unique fractal rendering engine while some people use it for art, we like to use it for a CPU test, and I did notice that in the task manager I was only using 25% CPU (100% on one core).



Lower is better


Cinebench

Next on the list comes Cinebench, which uses another type of advanced rendering. This benchmark has two tests, one that uses a single core, and one that is multi threaded.





Higher is better


Moving on along down our sometimes long benchmark list is...

ScienceMark



Higher is better
