Dual-Core Versus Quad-Core: Part 2

Performance: Sandra XII and Windows Experience Index

Windows Experience Index

The Windows Experience Index is a pretty useless tool once hardware reaches a certain performance level. The CPU index shows the same results for both processors, which is close to reality—you need a much faster quad core processor to reach 5.9 points.

Memory performance looks to be okay in case of both systems, as both receive the maximum score of 5.9 points.
