Amd vs intel - no benchmark tests

Hi.. i couldn't find comparison benchmark tests for
ATHLON IIX3 400 and
INTEL PENT D-CORE2.7 775 2M BX - E5400

I am going to be buying a system soon. Im wondering which one would be better/faster. I will mainly be doing application stuff. not much gaming.
Which ever one is better i'll be buying.

  1. This is about the best I could find since I'm not aware of an Athlon II X3 400.

  2. which Athlon are thinking of getting? Are you talking about the 400e?

    What type of applications are you talking about? The slower clocked 400e(provided that is the chip your talking about), will be slower in just about every thing under the sun, except maybe encoding/trans-coding, cad work, things that will use the third processor.
  3. thanks for the link. It does seem the intel cpu will be overall better.

    the amd cpu is AMD ATHLON IIX3 400 45W BX AM3, if this helps.

    I think both cpu's are 2.7ghz
  4. There isn't a 45w 2.7ghz x3 to my knowledge, here a link to a data base, can you find your chip and tell us what it is exactly? Would be a lot easier to completely and accurately answer your question.

  5. Ive found cpu's that are more in comparison. im looking at
    AMD Phenom II X4 955 - 3.2GHz - 2MB L2 - 6MB L3
    Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 - 2.93GHz - 3MB L2

    www.anandtech.com has benchmarks all over the map. if i want to use my computer for using windows 2008 server and virtulization software, what would be the best one. i use more apps then play games.
  6. I would go with the X4 955, as applications do a better job utilizing 4-cores than games. This will benefit your system more.
