Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Beats Phenom 9600

Phenom 9700, AMD's 1st Quad-Core CPU
By

In our benchmark suite, the Phenom 9600 proved to be about 4.3% slower than the Athlon 64 X2 6400+ which is clocked at 3.20 GHz. The Phenom 9500 at 2.20 GHz is about 8.4% slower.

Despite its 900 MHz clock speed disadvantage, the Phenom 9600 can outpace the Athlon 64 X2 6400+ by up to 40% in applications that take advantage of multi-core CPUs, such as video encoding and 3D rendering.

    good review but you should have had included more result of the overclocked phenom. i just want to know how much juce i you can push out of it for me it is a must it beats the 6400+ otherwise its not worth purchasing in my opinion, it just has to beat its older generation when its running at same clocks.that is why amd has to work on its clock speed and cache. hopefully deneb will be out soon. i would also realy appriciate it to see some review about the phenom 9850 black edition compared against both the 6000+ 6400+ and q6600 and q9300 and maybe some e8xxx model. with overclocked results. pushed it to the maximum. would be realy cool hehe :)

    The SB700 does indeed support at least one PATA port as my motherboard has an IDE connector and I can use it with the ATIIXP PATA driver.
