What's Faster Our Builds or Dell's H2C?

PC Mark 2005

PC Mark System Test shows the Dell XPS 720 H2C edging out our own high-end build, and its CPU test indicates the reason: The Dell has twice as many processing cores. The dual-core processors scale appropriately to clock speed.

PC Mark memory test favors the tight timings of our overclocked high-end build, but its hard drive test prefers Dell's 10,000 RPM Western Digital Raptors.
