Phenom vs. Athlon Core Scaling Compared

Benchmark Results

The benchmark results include two charts per benchmark. The first shows the actual score or time required to complete the benchmark, which we wanted to show that Phenom with its four cores is indeed clearly faster than the Athlon 64 X2 when compared at the same clock speed. In addition, we normalized the 2.2 GHz results to 100% and looked at the performance increased we saw when we added 200 MHz.
