Six New Phenom II And Athlon II CPUs From AMD

Benchmark Results: Synthetics

Starting with 3DMark, we see that the CPU score results (in blue) rise dramatically from two to four CPU cores. After that, there is a notable increase in performance that coincides with price. But it appears that this benchmark favors the Intel processors (a pattern we've observed for years).

PCMark also shows the Intel platforms in an advantageous position. The only anomaly is a strange drop in hard disk performance when the Phenom II X2 560 processor is installed.

The CPU arithmetic benchmark shows that the Dhrystone iSSE4.2 tests perform better on Intel's architecture, while the Whetstone iSSE3 tests do better on AMD processors priced similarly.

The CPU multimedia scores wind up higher on the Phenom II processors, while the Intel chips demonstrate superior memory bandwidth, especially in the case of the Core i7-920 with its triple-channel memory interface.

    Do I hear comeback from AMD? Hopefully the Bulldozer shows results with the AM3+/AM3r2 in benchs.

    Good article and the 1075T is a good addition to the 6-Core line...
    And most of all, thanks for confirming that all the current socket will be replaced next year including AMD.

    I'd love to see these new chips pitted against the T1000 processor.

    aznshinobiDo I hear comeback from AMD? Hopefully the Bulldozer shows results with the AM3+/AM3r2 in benchs.this is hardly a comeback, they simply filled in segments on the price range with not-so-new products. a little bump in speed, probably better binned, and a few more bucks. seems like the logical thing to do at this point, until bulldozer anyhow

    I'd rather it was a 970T at 3.6 ghz with turbo up to 4.1ghz.
    Then again, who wouldn't?

    I'm still waiting for Bulldozer, I hope that Bulldozer makes AMD king again. If so I'll buy another AMD system. I've been waiting since the early Dualcore Windsor cores.

    nothing new here good on AMD if they keep the prices the same
    the 645 and 450 are really crazy good deals
  • Our 6 or their 4... Yeah, I'll still take i7 4 cores over these crappy 6cores. Not to mention, the i7 920 can be pushed another 50% in speed, 1075T can not, and it's more expensive than i7 920.

    MoreCores...1075T can not, and it's more expensive than i7 920.
    At $145, he 1075T is $40 cheaper than any Core i7 I can find online.

    Yay! :)
