Application Benchmarks – Productivity
Note that this AVG benchmark doesn’t compare against the previous system—which had a testing anomaly—but instead compares to the current system’s stock-clocked state. The overclock appears to afford quite the performance advantage here!
WinRAR shows a close result when compared to the previous system. Once again, we’re looking at an application that involves a lot of hard drive transfers, and might prefer the RAID configuration.
Well, the application benchmarks have pretty much unanimously shown that the applications like clock speed. Now we can dig in to the fun stuff that should show us some real differences between the two systems: games!
