Remember the memory speed discussion on one of the pages above? As you can see, the Athlon 64 X2 5600+ delivers shorter compression times in our WinRAR benchmark because its memory runs at full DDR2-800 speed, while the 6000+ at its 3.0 GHz clock speed can only run at DDR2-750. Clearly, this has quite an impact.
