Performance

PCMark Vantage: General Performance

To estimate the average performance we resorted to synthetic PCMark Vantage test that nevertheless uses algorithms also employed in popular applications.

Unfortunately, six-core Opteron processors yield to both: Phenom II X4 and Core i7-920 in PCMark vantage. But in this case it isn’t surprising, because this benchmark emulates the work of popular algorithms that are currently rarely optimized for multi-threaded environments. In other words, the results obtained in this benchmark show us that six-core processors are not yet a good universal solution for desktop platforms.
