Synthetic Furmark Benchmarks
In PCMark Vantage overclocked Phenom II X6 1055T outperforms overclocked quad-core Core 2 Quad and Phenom II X4, but yields to LGA1156 competitors. Moreover, it loses not only to Core i5-750, but also to the dual-core Core i5-660. Obviously six-cores working at high clock frequency do not always promise an advantage in benchmarks that are not specifically optimized for multi-threaded applications. However, in those apps that are well-optimized for multi-core architectures, such as 3DMark Vantage, six-core Phenom II X6 1055T shows its real best. It only yields to Core i5-750 and only in total score charts.
