Application Benchmarks: 2D And 3D Graphics

System Builder Marathon, Sept. '09: $1,250 Enthusiast Build

While the Phenom II's overclock gives it a 15% speed increase over stock clock rates, it's not enough to catch the i7's advantage thanks to Hyper-Threading in this application. The overclocked i7-920 performs about 70% faster than the stock Phenom II X4 945.

We didn't use the Photoshop benchmark in our last SBM, so here we can see the overclocked Phenom II showing a nice 22% performance increase over the stock speed.
