The AVG benchmark lives up to our performance expectations, with the overclocked Phenom II running at performance parity with the stock Core i5-750.
There’s not much to see in the WinRAR test except for a clear tendency toward solid performance from threaded CPUs. Note that the triple-core Phenom II results from the previous system are bested by a large margin when the chip's dormant CPU core is enabled.
