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.
The situation is not very rosy for AMD in games as well. The results obtained in contemporary applications of this type suggest that even the promising Phenom 9900 cannot ensure the same performance level you can get from Core 2 Quad Q6600.
By the way, Phenom doesn’t look too good even compared with the predecessor – Athlon 64 X2 6400+. The 1GHz clock speed difference and pretty weak optimization for quad-core architecture make dual-core AMD processors parctically as efficient in games as the new quad-core ones.
