We are ready to share with you our extensive benchmarking results of the real quad-core AMD processors from the new Phenom family that were officially announced on November 19, 2007. Our article includes detailed performance analysis for Phenom 9500, 9600, 9700, 9900 and an overclocked CPU running at 3.0GHz frequency.
General Performance: SYSmark 2007
SYSmark 2007 testing suite uses typical work scenarios in the most popular applications and tasks.
As you can see after the first few benchmarks, AMD quad-core processors cannot hope for a successful revenge. Despite its improved micro-architecture and true quad-core design, Phenom loses to Core 2 Quad CPUs. Only the overclocked to 3.0GHz Phenom processor can compete with the youngest Core 2 Quad Q6600 from Intel. However, you shouldn’t forget that AMD has not plans to release mass processors with clock speed like that any time soon.
