Synthetic Benchmarks

Phenom II 955 Versus Core i7 920: Gaming Value Compared

The Sandra tests show us a few things: first of all, it looks like the Cyberpower CPU was performing as it should for a Phenom II X4 955 overclocked to 3.6 GHz. The results are close to our new Phenom II system when overclocked to 3.7 GHz.

However, the memory bandwidth of the Cyberpower Gamer Dragon we previously reviewed does look low compared to our Phenom II test system. The new test system's latencies were lower, but it's still a little out of whack. It will be interesting to see if this results in different benchmark numbers.
